It doesn’t even take until the instrumental intro, “Leaving Home,” ends for the listener to know that an aural feast is about to ensue on the remainder of Monsterworks’ fifth disc, Spacial Operations. The only thing you can expect from these New Zealanders (if you haven’t heard their stuff before) is that you will not be prepared for it....

I quite liked Monsterworks last album "M-Theory", so naturally I wanted a crack at the latest opus of supermetal from Jon and Company. Now that I've lived with "The Precautionary Principle" for a bit and we've gotten to know each other, I can report that Monsterworks has effortlessly trumped the previous album. Hyper-gratuitous superlatives...

There’s plenty to like on this album from Monsterworks, as “M-Theory” brings to the table a sound which is a glorious smash-up of metal vibes from across the spectrum… and a sense of humor to boot. The band, formerly of New Zealand, is now located in England and is poised to kick ass all over the world. Essentially face-ripping...

After independently releasing three albums and an EP from their home base of New Zealand (1998's "Dormant", followed by the "Delusions of Grandeur" EP in 1999, "Dimensional Urgency" in 2001, and "Rogue" in 2002) Monsterworks return with a four song preview of their fifth and upcoming release, aptly titled "Battleroar : V". In early 2003, Monsterworks' singer/guitarist and guiding light Jon...

Remember when metal had a little thing called, 'energy'? Remember when metal wasn't a bunch of gloom and feigned hatred? Remember screaming along to Rob Halford on "Painkiller"? Well, so do these guys. Monsterworks' music is best described as melodic thrash with a heaping dose of uplifting melody and vocals that go from...

Independent Release

Dimensional Urgency is Monsterworks' third album of high energy, melodic thrash and boasts a killer mix of speed, soaring vocals, technical riffing and big, bad anthems. This album plays it fast and loose, which gives the thrashy tunes a lot of chaotic energy, but they always manage to pull it together before everything falls apart. It's a seat-of-your-pants ride, with...
