For years, France’s most recognized and active extreme doom metal band MONARCH have delivered some of the most punishing amplifier worship that has befallen doom metal through the band’s myriad of releases. This has earned them the reputation as one of the most recognized extreme doom metal bands in the scene today, through countless live shows and tours they have under their belt, their music is an experience to behold within the realm of doom metal.

Forged by a heaving earth rumbling low-end rhythm section being harnessed by the crawling and churning riffs of despair, and all held within the grips of the harsh and spellbinding vocals of Emilie Bresson, MONARCH have continued to raise the bar and push their own threshold with every succeeding release they unleash amongst their repertoire.

The band’s latest work and Profound Lore Records debut Sabbracadaver saw them create what could very well be their heaviest, most haunting, and moving album yet. Those who have already fallen under MONARCH’s spell will recognize it as the band’s most enchanting work, an album that will finds its way within the extreme doom metal hierarchy.
