‘Have You Ever Had A Dream … You could do anything?’ Like, say, live forever? On their new record ‘Are Forever’ 30,000 Monkies are living that dream. An immortal slab of noise, stuffed with pounds of suave sludge and riffs that sound like a zillion champagne corks popping all at once. The message is loud and clear: 30,000 Monkies are forever, and champagnemetal is here to stay.
For the past years, 30,000 Monkies have been stalwarts of the Belgian noise rock scene. From the dizzying riff fest on ‘Somewhere Over The Painbow’ to the Munchian screech of insanity called ‚I Ate Myself To Grow Twice As Big’, the boys from Beringen have consistently been unleashing cathartic noise avalanches in live venues across Europe. Loud and luxurious, and sticking out like a stockbroker in corpse paint: 30,000 Monkies celebrate the eternal victory of rock with sparkling showers of bubbly. Greetings from atop the twisted metallic throne of Rock.
