It wasn’t such a good idea. Whilst laying in bed enjoying my Sunday lie in, why not kill two birds with one stone and work my way through some of the promo releases I‟d been sent. First up TheseMonsters’ debut ‘Call Me Dragon’. It was like that horrible half wake half sleep where the dregs of a nightmare are still playing themselves out, all the worst bits of mainstream grunge and popular metal amassed together, with the occasional rawwwr thrown in for good effect. It’s a good job I’d had a quiet Saturday night, because the repetitive dull thud of the drum could well have driven a girl with a hangover to too many Nureofen. To make it more intense, and for this read, worse, there are no gaps between songs, and with no lyrics and no discernable differences between tunes, the album is just a bombardment of noise, and not a particularly pleasant one at that. Brew have some brilliant bands on their label – unfortunately These Monsters isn‟t one of them.
