Glenn Really I'm just taking this chance to plug Monsterworks. This is their first release which is OK, and the subsequent EP Delusions Of Grandeur would be my least fav. But after that, it's all great. Other than those two early releases they only have the recent 'Universe' here on bandcamp. But they actually have a huge discography so find their albums somewhere! Favorite track: Macroscope.

about

This is where it all began for Monsterworks.....

After playing the first few gigs as a three-piece consisting of Jared on drums, Ian on Lead Guitar and Jon on Guitar/Vocals, Ian’s brother Chris joined the band on bass in time to record “Dormant” at The Stomach, Palmerston North in July 1998. The band played more or less live together for the whole album, except for vocal overdubs and some additional leads.

Nigel Gapper engineered and mixed the original recordings, however, Ian and Jon revisited the old sessions in November 2010 with Lewis Childs at Earth Terminal for a longed-for re-mix and master. In the spirit of the original sessions this was completed in one day and involved the nervewracking process of recording from two 8-track ADAT tapes (which had grown some mould in the intervening 12 years) and hoping they didn’t disintegrate.

Monsterworks London, UK

MONSTERWORKS : has unashamedly stolen from a ludicrous number of metal sub-genres to create a truly unique beast. Be it thrash, death, old-school, prog or black metal, there is something for everyone. Expect wailing guitars, wailing screams and a pounding rhythm section, delivered by a four-man war of sound. Surely they can’t be serious? ... more
