MONARCH “Never Forever” Album Announcement, Teaser Posted

French cult doom metal band MONARCH have completed work on their eighth full-length album “Never Forever” set for release on Sept 22nd on CD/2xLP/Digital.  Check out a teaser from the album in the form of a new track called “Song To The Void” below.

With their new album “Never Forever” France’s cult extreme doom metal band MONARCH continue their singular style of punishing ritualistic drone doom and take it even more towards melancholic territory with their new LP. Even more ghostly, atmospheric, and haunting than its predecessor, 2014’s “Sabbracadaver”, “Never Forever” sees MONARCH take even more form and shape with their songwriting while still harnessing that plodding, down-tuned, and crushing low-end that has become their signature rhythmic backdrop to vocalist Emilie Bresson’s enchanting and spellbinding vocals. With the more melancholic tone and vibe of “Never Forever”, Bresson adapts her vocals in a more ethereal and delicate manner likewise, while still juxtaposing them with her otherworldly harsh shrieks.

Since 2002, MONARCH have been France’s most recognized and active extreme doom metal band, through countless touring all over the world (which has recently included multiple tours of Japan within the last few years) and delivering a myriad of releases on multiple respected labels of some of the most punishing amplifier worship that has befallen doom metal alongside the likes of such like-minded bands as Corrupted, Noothgrush, Burning Witch, and Khanate. This has earned them the reputation as one of the most recognized and respected underground extreme doom metal bands in the scene today.

Track listing for “Never Forever” goes as follows:

  1. Of Night With Knives
  2. Song Of The Void
  3. Cadaverine
  4. Diamant Noir
  5. Lilith
