monkey 2 song preview of lp ( 2011???)

this was one of a myriad of bands that took me totally by surprise this year.........hailing from calgary alberta, i still have only the barest of info on this band.........two songs of huge toxic mountains of churning noise..............its sludgy, but not slow and boring, loud and chaotic, but never mindbendingly complex, the vocals are of the requisite harshness and the production is top notch.....i can pick out alot of influences in their sound but theres is never one that rises above the other words they are perfectly balanced between all their influences and have managed to scrape out their own niche in the wider world of hardcore/metal/whathaveyou.......i think these songs are part of a full length that will (has?? as i cant find shit about this band anywhere, i have no idea whats going on with them) be released love to get my hands/ears on a few more tunes as these two just whet my appetite for more..........awesome start for an awesome band.........

  1. hi, thanks for the interest, and the kind words!
    to clear up some of the questions about the status of our band and record: we have recorded everything except vocals for a full-length album, and i am hoping to have the lyrical/vocal side of things done and the album mixed and mastered in the next couple of months. release and tour plans will follow. our drummer is currently recovering from a broken wrist, which has forced us to cancel all shows for the immediate future, but he should be good to go by the time we are able to release this album.
