Scottsdale, AZ (October 3, 2009) - Genz Benz continues its industry leading innovations in bass amplification with the new Shuttle 9.0, delivering 900 watts of power in a mere 4 pound, compact package.

Developed from the successful Shuttle 6.0 platform, the new Shuttle 9.0 offers the same simple Tube preamp features and intuitive layout, along with exceptional headroom and responsive feel.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
