French ultra-slow doomers Monarch return to the Profound Lore label with their eighth full length Never Forever. Taking doom down to an atmospheric wall of sound they create the low end power of Sunn O)) with vocals that cross from ethereal and harmonic to blood curdling shrieks. Bludgeoning and bleak. FFO Big Brave etc..

8/10 Doomster Customer review, 24th May 2018
Hailing from Bayonne in the south of France , doom metal heroes Monarch have all of the sonic weight of Harvey Milk and the harrowing atmospherics of their label-mates Bell Witch. Never Forever is their eighth album and it’s a heavy beast comprised of 5 lengthy tracks. With the band laying down giant slabs of slow-and-low riffery, singer Emilie Bresson builds layers upon layers of mournful, melancholy vocals to breathtaking effect. The impressionistic ‘Song to the Void’ is one of the album’s highlights, but if ultra-slow doom is your thing then this is the album for you.
