RIYL: doom

Label: Cruel Nature Records

When you listen to #monkpunkmanifesto, you can’t help but think of the stereotypical intense imagery associated with drone – the metal kind, not the electronic kind. You think of a few people, perhaps in druids’ robes, facing down with their hair so long not an inch of skin can be seen from the neck to the head area. In the background are three murdered-out subwoofers as tall as Kevin Durant or Dirk Nowitzki. Of course, this image would lack completion without a leaky roof letting in some torrential downpour. Concerning drone music, especially drone rooted in metal/guitars, there’s really not much else to do but look down and close your eyes to ride it out in silence. This isn’t something you can really headbang or mosh to. #monkpunkmanifesto perhaps (of course, this is tongue-in-cheek in title most likely) wants the listener to become ascetic, to take in all its waves with no obstacles. Listen to #monkpunkmanifesto below via the Bandcamp player and see what you think of it. Cheers!
