The most extreme entity to come out of Nottingham since Earache itself!
Two long out of print releases from cult UK aggro-doomsters Iron Monkey,
housed in one value packed set, retailing for the price of a normal full
price CD, now that is what I call sludgecore!!
With the band's 1997 self titled debut effort
'Iron Monkey' introduced the world to how warped and twisted the blueprint that Black Sabbath put down almost 30 years before could become. Followed by the perverse 'Our Problem' in 1998 this band brought an air of feral menace wherever they trod.
Produced by Andy Sneap (Machine Head, Cradle of Filth, Exodus, Nevermore) these excellent albums are complemented by 4 bonus tracks; 3 songs from the sought after 'We've Learned
Nothing' split with Church of Misery, and a raw Black Sabbath cover version making a total of 18 tracks housed in a smart slipcase sleeve.
Topped off with liner notes written by original guitarist Steve Watson,
including unpublished photos from his personal archive this is a must for all fans of Eyehategod, Grief, Bongzilla, Electric Wizard, early Cathedral and the heavier end of the Rise Above roster.
