For years, France’s most recognized extreme doom metal band Monarch have been delivering some of the most punishing amplifier worship. Earning this reputation over the course of countless live shows and tours, Monarch is truly an experience to behold within the realm of doom metal. A heaving, earth-rumbling low-end rhythm section underpins crawling, churning riffs of despair, while the harsh and commanding vocals of Emilie Bresson hold all within their spellbinding grip. Continuing to raise the bar and push the threshold with each successive release, Monarch unleashes their latest work and Profound Lore Records debut. Sabbracadaver could very well be their heaviest and haunting yet. Those who have already fallen under the band’s spell will recognize Sabbracadaver as a most enchanting work—an album that will find its place within the upper reaches of the doom metal hierarchy.
