Crinklechips Long, drawn out, punishing Doom. Traditional. Love it.

I particularly like the vocals in The Burning of Elohim that sound like an incantation to raise Baphomet himself! Favorite track: Nameless City.
Popemobile thumbnail
Popemobile Been bumping these guys for awhile now. I'm loving this albums mix of proper Doomy vibes, brutal riffs, and break neck kicks. I got the opportunity to grab on of their Vinyls as a first in my collection. Ya'll kick ass, Stay Brutal! Favorite track: Nightmare Frontier.

"This is doom metal doing what it does best: invoking a sense of timelessness and vastness on a mythic scale. Monte Luna tell their story not as a narrative arrow plunging forever forward through time, but rather as the vast grinding gears of history in which every beginning is just cycling through until the end again." - Todd Manning, Coffinworm, Invisible Oranges.

"With a self-released, self-titled debut LP, Monte Luna throw their hat in the power duo ring and perform admirably, a psychedelic, spacey blast of eclectic stoner metal, Monte Luna goes all in with six tracks that range from blast beat fury to soulful blues riffage". - The Sludgelord

"Monte Luna remind me a lot of Bongripper. They’ve got those syrupy, monotone stoner riffs down to a T, and manage to deliver them in a manner as hypnotizing as it is hard-hitting. To this solid foundation, they add a singer who turns out to be surprisingly varied, covering a good amount of ground between drunken, drawn-out crooning, downright caustic shrieking, and some barking growls." - Toilet ov Hell

"you’re going to find yourself remembering its massive, 71-minute sprawl of riffs, its doomed-out grooves, shouts, screams, growls and the way its builds become so utterly immersive, and you’re going to put Monte Luna on again. And that’s the moment when it will really hit you. It might take some time, and part of that is no doubt that there’s simply a lot of record to wade through, but whether it’s the rumbling start of “Nightmare Frontier” (14:26), the cacophonous stomp of “Inverted Mountain” (12:04) or the righteous crash of “The End of Beginning” (9:42), Monte Luna will have earned that deeper look, and if you allow them to make that deeper impression with their self-titled, they almost certainly will."- The Obelisk

"Every beat seems to add that extra punch that when these dude plays together just creates this very large and massive sound that tips the scales. I'm willing to bet this will be on my year end list. I mean it's for sure one of my favorite Stoner Doom albums of the year. You just can't beat the stoner riffage on this one. It's the kind of shit that gets your head bobbing as you feel that stoner groove the band is slanging at you. With every listen, this one kept growing on me. Well done dudes" - Samir, Super Dank Metal Jams

"The dire story that James' vocals as well as the album, tell is one nightmarish reality which has no end, offers no escape, and eradicates hope of any reprieve" - Riffrelevant

"The word epic doesn’t even begin to capture the crushing majesty of this band. Imagine if H.P. Lovecraft transported his Cosmic Horror tales into the fantasy world of Robert E. Howard’s Conan universe. What if psychedelic filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky made films based on the Weird fiction of Clark Ashton Smith? This is the sound that Monte Luna capture on their debut, and just like the strange alchemical marriages described above, they seamlessly meld the Doom Metal sounds of such stalwarts as Electric Wizard and Conan with the rhythmic drive found on Godflesh’s “Streetcleaner”." - Cvltnation
