Iron Monkey - _Our Problem_
(Earache Records, 1998)
by: Adrian Bromley (
Iron Monkey return with a blistering follow-up to their self-titled six-song EP. With some nasty and vulgar cover artwork (censored now, I believe?!), the doom-laden growls of consumption and utter aggression spark forth from the band's latest effort with a detonating blow to our skulls. Powerful waves of unbelievable momentum keep things chaotic here from start to finish. This band is warped, yet oh-so good. From frazzled growled vocals to sickened slabs of anguished wails and chuggish riffs, England's Iron Monkey do the unspeakable and penetrate us with its venomous claws. And as bad and disgusting as it may seem, the ravaging we get from the blatant ass-kicking is worth it. Are there any bands out there so violently charged? Maybe, but Iron Monkey do it just as well, if not better.
