Monje – Monje


Monje – Monje
Self released – 2018
Rock, Metal, Doom, Stoner
Rated: ***

Those first two minutes are so freaking amazing, you almost feel ashamed to say that you are saddened the doom is turned up and everything becomes desolate and bleak afterwards. But then you start feeling the weird vocals, the growling echoes and the grimy rhythms. Straight from Buenos Aires, Argentina comes Monje. Founded somewhere around 2016 they released their first self-titled album at the beginning of this month. And rest assured, that pounding, trucking rhythm returns at the end of the song as well. They definitely love their doom metal vistas; but seem to cannot do without those explosions, those stoner barrages, that speeding metal sound. For speedy it definitely is! And we love’m for it! Cause it is what makes Monje different, it is what makes Monje your new travelling companion. Cause this is the kind of doom metal that works well on the road! Especially when one is heading south in search of desert heat and a truckload of mezcal. Monje Mezcal!
