    Swedish trio Monolord have announced their new album, No Comfort, with the sludgy new single, “The Bastard Son.”

    This new track is all about the repetitive riff, which should be firmly lodged in your brain by the time the 9-minute chugger ends. The song opens No Comfort, which Monolord recorded near their hometown of Gothenburg in Sweden. The band recorded the six-track album with Kim Gravander, the first outside party Monolord have let into their creative process.

    No Comfort arrives September 20. Their fourth full-length record overall, it will be their first album for Relapse Records. Stream “The Bastard Son” below:
