Swedish Heavy Psyche Rockers JIRM Unveil "The Cultist" Video

"Surge Ex Monumentis" Out Now On Small Stone

Swedish heavy psychedelic rockers JIRM released their "Surge Ex Monumentis" full-length via Small Stone earlier this month. 

Formerly Jeremy Irons And The Ratgang Malibus, JIRM has never been more themselves than they are on "Surge Ex Monumentis." 

Even as they redefine who they are and what they do as a band, they remain singularly powerful in their delivery and completely unmistakable. 

The seven-track "Surge Ex Monumentis" was captured at Puch Studios in Stockholm, Sweden, mixed by Oskar Lindberg at Svenska Grammofonstudion in Gothenburg, Sweden, and mastered by Chris Gooseman at Baseline Audio Labs in Ann Arbor, Michigan

In celebration of the release of "Surge Ex Monumentis," JIRM is pleased to unveil a new video for "The Cultist."

Check it out at earsplitcompound.com where you can also view the band's previously-released "Candle Eyes" video.

"Surge Ex Monumentis" is out now on CD, digital, and limited edition 2xLP formats via Small Stone. Orders are currently available at smallstone.bandcamp.com where the record can also be streamed in full.

Sometimes in life you have to make a change. 

And sometimes you have to make a whole bunch of changes. 

So it is that JIRM is born and stands where once stood Jeremy Irons And The Ratgang Malibus. 

Having dropped the cumbersome moniker, the Swedish heavy rockers embark on a new era with "Surge Ex Monumentis" - marked as much by a tightening of sound as name.

For their first record as JIRM, the Stockholm-based four-piece of vocalist/guitarist Karl Apelmo, guitarist Micke Pettersson, bassist Viktor K√§llgren, and drummer Henke Persson cast off the shackles of expectation entirely. 

Their style is no less expansive, but it's become entirely their own, a driving mind meld between psychedelia, classic metal, heavy rock, and individualized realms beyond. 

"Surge Ex Monumentis" brims with newfound energy at the same time it benefits from the lessons JIRM have learned since first getting together in 2004 and releasing albums like Elefanta (2009), Bloom (2011), and Spirit Knife (2014), a record Mass Movement crowned, "a blissful mixture of Soundgarden at their grooviest and Pink Floyd...a terrific album of sunny day, top down, cruising music.
