Monolord- Rust Review

As I am quite certain I have firmly established, I dig the heavy, I dig blood and guts, I dig music that quite frankly repulses a lot of people.  What people don’t know (unless you listen to the podcast?) is that I am an extremely big advocate for marijuana aka I’m a fucking pothead!  With this territory comes some epic music, call it Stoner, call it Heavy Psych, call it what you will, but sometimes you just gotta relax, roll one up and crank the tunes.  September 29th, 2017 our good friends at RidingEasy Records will bring us the highly anticipated new album “Rust” by Swedish Stoner Titians Monolord.
For those of you that don’t know, Monolord is a trio out of Gothenburg Sweden; they have been doing their Stoner Doom style of Rock n Roll since 2013.  The new record “Rust” is their 3rd full length record and these boys are an absolute force to be reckoned with.  From the first note on this record you know exactly what you are in for, an epic brand of Psychedelic charged Rock n Roll.  …

Malokarpatan- Nordkarpatenland Review

2017 is officially three quarters of the way over, releases are coming in at a crazy pace and I can barely keep up with the email flooding into the Malphas Vault inbox.  It has become a regular occurrence for me to listen a couple minutes of a record and promptly delete it, now this may seem harsh or like I am not giving all the records a fair shake, but god damn, I’m only one man, and the other deadbeats that are a part of Malphas Vault certainly aren’t going to do it! (Love you guys) So I am left with records that right off the jump sucks me in, records that have that certain something that makes me not immediately roll my eyes and hit the delete button.  One such record was recently sent to me by our friends at Invictus Productions, they in conspiracy with The Ajna Offensive will bring us a record this Halloween that defies genre, and is as brutal as it is beautiful.  Malokarpatan will release Nordkarpatenland and ladies and gentleman, we may have just found album of the year.
