MONSTERWORKS Tracking New Album at Rockfield Studios in Wales

Hot the heels of recently released The Existential Codex, London's MONSTERWORKS hit the studio this week to record the follow-up. The band is tracking at Rockfield Studios in Wales. Guitarist/vocalist Jon offered this studio update:

"Here we are in Rockfield Studios in Monmouthshire.  This is exciting for the band and me personally because some of the greatest acts in rock and metal have recorded here, like my all-time favourite album, Judas Priest's Sad Wings of Destiny; not to mention Queen (various parts off Sheer Heart Attack and A Night at the Opera) and Black Sabbath with Dio (including swan song The Devil You Know).  More recently Opeth recorded Pale Communion here which is hailed as a sonic masterpiece ....and although we can't quite afford their full production team, we'll do our best to come up with a dynamic album that sounds amazing by channelling some of the Rockfield magic!

It is day three and all drums, bass and half the rhythm guitars are down.  Vocals will be later today and tomorrow...where I will stand in the same room as Halford when he belted out 'The Ripper' nearly 40 years ago.  Thanks to our engineer Tim Lewis for a really smooth ride so far."

The Existential Codex was released February 27 on Eat Lead & Die Music.  The six-track digital version is available as a free download . The 73-minute CD comes with bonus tracks, as well as Blu-Ray of 5.1 Surround and HD stereo mixes on the UK group's Bandcamp page. Another in a long line of super metal masterpieces, The Existential Codex is also available for purchase at
