Monsterworks have returned with a new album which shows them remaining true to their mixture of power, thrash and death metal while also gettiing even more progressive this time around and this is a review of their 2014 album "Overhaul" which will be released on August 12 by Eat, Lead And Die.
A very dark sounding synth starts off the album along with some elements of ambient and noise before going into a hard metal direction along with some vocals that are melodic melodic yet aggressive at the same time and you can also hear a good amount of melody in the guitar riffing along with some 70's rock style guitar leads.
When death metal growls are added onto the recording the music starts getting more diverse along with a great amount of prog metal elements and all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them and all of the tracks stick to mostly a slow to mid paced direction as well as adding in a good mixture of both clean and heavy parts and after awhile high pitched screams can be heard in certain sections of the recording and the last track is over 22 minutes in length and really displays the progressive side of the bands musical sound as well as bringing in a small amount of blast beats.
Monsterworks goes for more of a progressive direction this time around while still having a decent amount of heaviness to them, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover Projecting where we will ultimately end up by the time the Universe ends in a few trillion years or so along with some inspiration from Isaac Asimov.
In my opinion this is another great sounding album from Monsterworks and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this recording. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "To Do What Must Be Done" and "Resolution". 8 out of 10.
