Monsterworks - Penultimate
MONSTERWORKS Debut "Penultimate" with New Noise Magazine
UK supermetallers MONSTERWORKS have teamed with New Noise Magazine for the exclusive premiere of a brand new track off the band's forthcoming album, Overhaul. Titled "Penultimate," the song is now playing at the link below:
Overhaul is set for release on August 26. The album will be available as a download and 180g gatefold vinyl signed by the band, with lyrics.
Vocalist/Guitarist Jon comments on the upcoming release:
"Test pressings of the LP arrived the other day and it sounds fantastic. I mean, it was not like magical steel butterflies swarmed out of the speakers just because it was vinyl, but it is pretty cool to hear our hard work cut to wax. Really excited for the release of this one and getting the full 12 inches of artwork for the first time.
We are scheduled to release on August 26th, although it could be a few days after that when the LPs actually arrive. In any event we will take orders via Bandcamp from that day and you will get an immediate download of the album."

"If you can dig Monsterworks you can dig just about anything, simply because they don't feel the need to follow any of the rules or bullshit that dominate so much of the metal world. Overhaul is the sound of freedom, and that is what makes it ultimately great."
- Two Guys Metal Reviews
"[Overhaul] could not sound more full or massive in creation.....who [would have] thought a dozen notes could make some of the most interesting art in over 6 decades now. Long live rock and roll ..." - Absolute Zero Media
"Monsterworks have returned with a new album which shows them remaining true to their mixture of power, thrash and death metal while also getting even more progressive this time around" [8/10] - The True Bringer of Death Zine
"If I were to make a Top 10 Prog Albums of 2014 list, Monsterworks would hold spots 1 and 2 [for Universe and Overhaul], but I don't know in which order. They continue to make exciting music that everyone should be listening to." - Glacially Musical
