Ultraslow doom metal from the southwest of France (members are from Bayonne & Bordeaux, in Aquitaine), with a female throat artist on the mic. They formed in 2002.

In 2005, they released their debut, a double CD with three tracks. Since then the band have released new albums almost annually; additionally, they have also released various EPs, singles and splits with [a288726], the [a468710] and [a565230]. Monarch have released with various labels, mainly with the Spanish [l42960] and have recently signed with US label [l60172] that released their new record, Omens.

Monarch have toured frequently outside France; in the beginning of 2010 they played alongside [a390027] in Australia, and in 2010/2011, Monarch toured North America, Japan and Australia.

Drawing comparisons to the likes of heavy weights [a214036], [a175037], [a256257] and the [a87652], Monarch are a unique band with the pure intent on creating blood curdling feedback drenched physical sound through the use of insane volume and low end frequencies, oh, and with a wall of sweet vintage amps.

Current line-up (2013):

[a1750257] a.k.a. Eurogirl - vocals

[a1750254] - guitar

MicHell ([a1750256]) - bass

Benjamin Sablon - drums (european tours)

[a2410058] - drums (us tours)
