KOTM welcomes AGARTTHA to the family

We here at KOTM are very pleased and excited to be announce and release the debut from AGARTTHA!

From the backward special theatre of archetypes, Agarttha is a flashing journey into the past dream of a gypsy moth whos powder ferries the listener into the twists and turns of the unconscious among remote architectures of black pointed stones and echoes of warmth and light.

This LP will be mastered by James Plotkin and is set to release sometime before the end of the year. More details to follow as they become available.

In the meantime, check out a video for 'Storms As He Walks' below.


King of the Monsters is proud to annoucne the upcoming release of one of the heaviest splits of 2012 – a 7″ collaboration between Boise fuzz-doom shamans UZALA and Austin, TX’s own psych-minded doom fiends MALA SUERTE. Preorders are now up in the webstore, and will ship in early November. The split features a brand-new track from each band, as well as mind-blowing cover art, courtesy of UZALA chanteuse, axe-slinger, and celebrated tattoo artist Darcy Nutt and MALA SUERTE vocalist Gary Rosas.

The release is limited to 500 copies, with the first 100 available on black/white split vinyl and the remaining 400 entombed in obsidian black.

MALA SUERTE’S “The Veil of Secrecy” is an older fan favorite, recorded in winter 2010. The UZALA song was recorded at Type Foundry in Portland, OR in August 2011 with Alex Yusimov at the helm, mixed by Blake Green at WOLVSERPENT STUDIOS, and mastered by Mell Dettmer.

Future Tense

Lazy days of summer are upon us but we here at KOTM are keeping busy and would like to announce three (!) upcoming releases that should be out July/August.

"Nightmarish, noise-inflicted doom from IL", with previous cassette only releases on Ivory Antler, Triangulum Ignis and A Terre Records, KOTM is proud to release their vinyl debut! This two song 7" features the track "No Honour" on one side and a reimagining of it by Iron Forest on the flipside.

Idaho (and Oregon) vs. Texas. Each band offer up one new track that is sure to crush you. This should tide you over until the Uzala 10" is completed later this year. Doom and gloom.

SERVILE SECT "Svrrender" 12"
Vinyl release of the cassette released on Handmade Birds earlier this year. Some of Servile Sect's most accomplished and oppressive sounds to date.

Ordering details for each release will be made available once we have a more defiante release date.
