Monsterworks are a band from New Zealand that h as been featured before in this zine with a musical styles that mixes death, thrash and power metal together and this is a review of their 2012 ep "Man :: Instincts" which was released by mortal Music.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with some blast beats being thrown into the music at times, while the bass playing h as a very strong and powerful sound with heavy riffing that dominates throughout the recording.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine death, thrash and power metal together to create a sound of their own with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use full chords and finger picking to add more variety to the music.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls, thrash style yelling and clean singing power metal vocals, while the lyrics cover dark and anti religion themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound where you can h ear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Monsterworks and if you are a fan of their last album, you should enjoy this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Free Will". RECOMMENDED BUY.
