Formed in 2013, this band is made up of Swedish rockers Thomas Jäger, Esben Willems, and Mika Häkki. Both Jäger and Willems were in the Swedish boogie rock band Marulk and started Monolord as a side project as a way to play some more heavier tunes, they quickly added Häkki (from The Don Darlings, ex Rotten Sound) and realized that they had something very special between the 3 of them. Monolord became very real very quickly and recording commenced in early 2013. Thomas Jäger had not sung in a band before this one, but you would never know it by the sound of it. Having met RidingEasy Records head hauncho Daniel Hall over instagram in May of 2014 when the record was ready to listen to, RidingEasy was one of the first that it was sent to and picked up the band immediately after hearing the finished album Empress Rising that then was released worldwide on April 1. The second album, Vænir, was released worldwide April 28th.
Doom metal band from Portland, Oregon that formed in 2011.

"WILL has been playing shows on and off in Portland for years, though they have yet to release any formal recordings. Despite this, they have amassed a following in Portland and its surrounding areas amongst those who like the more pensive side of doom a la YOB, Serial Hawk, Om, and the like. Frontman Billy Kyle’s vocals would be as fitting in the dark chambers of a cathedral as they are at the helm of a doom band with 18-minute, meditative, hellishly spiritual songs. Their debut album is due out sometime this winter." —Kerrang!
