Heavy Hops Ep. 079: Experiences and Experiencing (Esben Willems/Monolord, Studio Berserk)

This week we’re joined by Esben Willems, drummer in Swedish heavy band Monolord. Your Time To Shine, the band’s fifth album, was released last year on Relapse Records, and we dive into it from his perspective as a musician and producer. Your Time To Shine was his first recording in Studio Berserk, which he took over a year ago. We also discuss touring during the pandemic and the doom label, which is often how the media characterize Monolord. Esben has handled editing, mixing and mastering of Heavy Hops episodes since July of 2021, and it is a joy to record and share one of our conversations with you.
