Athens, Greece (April 21, 2016) -- The Athens based and well-established company unleashes the “Ocean” studio quality reverb pedal. Offering 3 types of reverb modes, “Shimmer”, “Hall” and “Spring”. The Ocean was designed to create, a studio quality, classic and ambient reverb textures of sound in a small sized pedal. From thick and endless hall, symphonic shimmers to classic vintage spring reverb.

3 types of reverb: Hall, Shimmer and Spring, fully customized via “Size”, “Diffuse” and “Storm” controls. “Mix” control adjusts the balance between dry and wet signal and you can go from a pure dry signal to a 100% wet signal, no dry at all, ideal for volume swells without the need of volume pedal or guitar volume knob. All these makes the Ocean a versatile pedal ideal for almost any reverb job.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

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.
