LIFE IS NOISE is proud to announce the first visit to our shores of Italian space doom virtuosos Ufomammut, along with masters of the riff, Swedish three-piece Monolord. These two behemoths will be laying waste to cities across Australia and New Zealand this October in a truly huge doom double-header.
Their musical vision is one that’s so obviously well-honed that they know exactly when to kick the music into overdrive before lulling the listener back into a state of sonic paralysis. – The Quietus
Drawing on influences such as Sleep, Sabbath, Windhand, and Conan, Swedish trio Monolord take reverence to the riff to new extremes, with their second record, 2015’s Vænir, mixing glacial tempos with hypnotic and otherworldly vocals that coalesce into an album of both beauty and malevolence.
As slow as some of their riffs are, heads have turned correspondingly fast toward Swedish tone constructionists Monolord. They leave little mystery as to why. – The Obelisk
