Monsterworks’ The God Album Released Today in the U.S.

MONSTERWORKS’ The God Album has arrived in North America on this 8th day of March, 2011 via Casket Music.  The forward thinking metal masterpiece saw European release on February 28th.

Consisting of Hugo (bass), James (drums), Marcus (lead guitar) and Jon (guitar/vocals), the UK’s Monsterworks has thrown all its collective experience into a new and ambitious slab of granite joy: The God Album, a philosophical journey navigating the woes of religion and its implications for the modern world.  Monsterworks has been described as “thinking man’s metal.” Vocalist Jon (also vocalist/lyricist for The Living Fields) says “Since the release of our heavy metal space adventure concept albums: Spacial Operations and Singularity [“2112 for the download generation” – Classic Rock] I was intrigued with the idea of ‘themed’ records rather than straight narrative stories.  This new album has something to say from a few different angles and I hope it will reinforce the importance of critical thinking and the dangers of blind faith.  We live in an age of great technological achievement, yet a significant part of the populations of supposedly modern industrialized nations believe that the Earth is six thousand years old.  There is something profoundly bizarre about that.  It is worth having a cup of tea or a few beers and pondering whilst listening to The God Album.”
