Stalwart members of the Brighton, UK Metal Scene, Here There Be Monsters quickly affirmed themselves as a live revelation, touring both within the UK and Europe.

"A wild, gnarly mixture of seething hardcore, spastic grind, ultra-dark screaming and vein-popping punk-metal. This sound is very refreshing in its disregard for convention and has plenty of breathless, fidgety grooves to raise the pulse. 8/10" Terrorizer Magazine

"A monumental clash of no compromise brutal hardcore and tectonic thrashes smashing together Read more on Last.fm
