Modern Monsters - Modern Monsters - Album Review - Heavy Rock from San Francisco, California, USA

Today we are featuring a promising heavy rock band, Modern Monsters, from Bay Area, San Francisco, California, USA. I have reviewed their self-titled debut EP along with its character, style, story, and potential.

I have heard of Modern Monsters with their self-titled debut album EP about a month ago, and it took me a while to understand what to say about their music. First of all, there are solid nostalgic influences in their music that reminded me of some bands I listened to while growing up like The Offspring and Metallica's Load-Reload era. I got sure of heavy Metallica influences here when I heard the guitar solo on the third track of the album, Lament. It was too obvious to miss that Kirk Hammett wah.

Their self-titled album is a great-sounding album. Period. And it stands out with its nostalgic and dynamic sound. The sound character is quite familiar to any ears who listened to 90s heavy rock and metal music, and that's one of the main reasons why it immediately makes the necessary impact. Everything sounds perfectly well-balanced, blended, and mixed.

Musically, the album also has those influences in its DNA. Here you will find all those good old-school Alice in Chains, Nirvana, The Offspring, Metallica, Motörhead vibes, which technically makes those who listen to these bands their main audiences. Energetically the album is fantastic from the beginning to the end. It makes the most crucial difference with its fantastic mix as I have mentioned earlier, cause this is one of the best-sounding albums I have listened to in this specific genre. People are still confused about Metallica's Load and Reload albums, but no one can argue those albums still sound as solid as a rock, even on this day. Modern Monsters album, in this way, is an impressive work with similar qualities in it.

On the other hand, I have to admit that I don't necessarily listen to punk, or metal music with positive vibes, and both of these characteristics are in Modern Monsters album. Although I personally don't have any criticisms for their songwriting and haven't heard any musical weaknesses throughout the album, just these three songs musically didn't resonate with me in the end.

When I take all these into account, I'd like to say that I've had a good time listening to Modern Monsters. Their debut EP is a serious step forward as a new band that will bring many fans to their club.
