Monsterworks are a band from New Zealand that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style that combines death, thrash and power metal together and this is a review of their 2012 digital release Man : Intrinsic" which was released by Mortal Music.
Drums range from slow, mid paced to fast drumming with not much in the way of blast beats, while the bass playing has a dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that is coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast riffs that combine death, thrash, power metal and stoner rock together to create a sound of their own along with a good amount of melody being thrown into the riffing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding guitar solos and leads that have a 70's rock feeling to them, as for the acoustic guitars when they are utilized they use finger picking and full chords to add more variety to the music.
Vocals range from deep death metal growls, thrash screams and clean singing that combine power metal and stoner rock together as well as a brief use of spoken word samples, while the lyrics cover philosophical themes, as for t he production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound to it.
In my opinion this is another great recording from Monsterworks and if you are a f an of t his band, you should c heck out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACK "Taste of Doom". RECOMMENDED BUY.
