Anglo-Antipodean MONSTERWORKS have partnered with New Noise Magazine for the premiere of “All Truths Be True,” a track from forthcoming album Scale and Probability. Stream it now: https://newnoisemagazine.com/stream-monsterworks-all-truths-be-true/
Vocalist/guitarist Jon explains the lyrical content of “All Truths Be True” as follows:
“All Truths Be True is about the idea that maybe, just maybe, a human being or indeed any sentient intelligence is so individually unique that it creates its own reality. In other words, what if we literally live in a personal universe of our own making? The concept is interwoven with the theme of the album, i.e.The Fermi Paradox, and explores the idea of a transcension hypothesis where, because technology and evolution advances so quickly from the singularity, the opportunity for detecting another intelligence is just too brief. The being we hope to make contact with would have moved out of this plane of existence.”
MONSTERWORKS will release Scale and Probability May 4 on Eat Lead and Die Music. Pre-order it at monsterworks.bandcamp.com/album/scale-and-probability
The official video for album track “Weight of Emptiness” is available at this location.
The Fermi Paradox asks:
“Why, in a vast universe where the probability of life evolving in multiple places would seem a certainty, have we not made contact with other civilisations?”
MONSTERWORKS’ sixteenth (yes, 16!) album Scale and Probability attempts to answer that question. Recorded at Rockfield Studios, Wales (Queen, Black Sabbath, Judas Priest, Coldplay, ugh) and mastered by Dan Swanö at Unisound, Sweden the band has gone for a full dynamic range approach to its music.
Frontman Jon says:
“While there is a growing movement towards dynamic metal production, it is still all too common for the music we love to be overcompressed to make it sound louder, known as ‘brickwalling’, crushing the natural dynamics and causing listener fatigue. My band may have even been guilty of it a bit in the past, but no more. I urge you to demand the best sound quality from other bands and record labels. Full Dynamic Range or nothing (and not charging extra for it in an HD download). Not everyone can afford to record in great studios, but everyone can take the sensible decision not to ruin their own music during the mastering process in a futile attempt to fight and lose in the Loudness Wars….. and don’t even get me started on drums that sound like typewriters and guitar amp simulation software! This has been a public service announcement…. also please buy our album.”
MONSTERWORKS’ Scale and Probability will be available as an FDR HD lossless download through Bandcamp with a PDF lyric book (honestly, it is stupid that most bands don’t offer this simple added extra). CDs, vinyl and especially cassettes are made from dead dinosaurs and are inferior sound sources to an HD download. That is science. You are of course welcome to download a 320kbps MP3 rather than the lossless version because, honestly, science also says you won’t be able to tell the difference, but its nice to know what we deliver is in the same form it left the studio.
“Scale and Probability relies on the quality of the composition while delivering a thought provoking odyssey that slips the bonds of earth.”

“Monsterworks is a band that’s pummeling the world with new material. Unlike many other metal bands who’ve dug into an established sub-genre, Monsterworks just makes the music that makes sense to them.”
