Iron Monkey - _Iron Monkey_
by: Adrian Bromley (
If I had to pick one band that really kicked me hard and to the floor in no time flat this year, it would be Iron Monkey. Heavy as fuck, this British sludge-core quintet lash out with furious might on this 6-song debut EP of theirs. Thank God it was an EP or I'd be in intensive care for a week. Shades of Korn (not a lot but the aggro-rock feel is there), though most predominantly the stylings of Black Sabbath and Eyehategod, are what run rampant and abuse our ears on this release. Heavier and louder than a lot of shit out there nowadays. Short review, two words: violently potent. Get this and get this now, kids. I'm :eagerly: awaiting a full-length follow-up (out early/spring 1998). Damn! It's gonna be a long winter.
