5.0 out of 5 stars Brutal, scary, eerie, sludgy,..Brilliant! 29 July 2002
Format:Audio CD
Now THIS is scary music! Iron Monkey really carved a niche for themselves in the late 90's with their blend of stoner riffs, doomy grooves and throat shredding vocals. With high profile rock associates (such as Ross Robinson, Phil Anselmo and Amen to name but a few) singing their praises you really can't go wrong. This mini-album is a classic introduction to a short lived band who's influence still reigns on in today's metal scene. Johnny Morrow (Iron Monkey's lead growler) died last month, do yourself a favour and check this out to see what an amazing vocalist the metal world has just lost. R.I.P Johnny x

5.0 out of 5 stars See more evil, hear more evil, speak more evil. 21 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD
Possibly one of the most under-rated U.K. bands ever, Iron Monkey were definitely marching to the beat of their own deranged drum. This, their self-titled debut mini-album is, without doubt, one of the best sludge metal records of all time. Johnny Morrow's vocals are possibly the sickest ever recorded and as such the lyrics are a total (but gloriously cacophonous) mystery. As for the guitar, I don't think that I have ever heard so many down-tuned, grinding Black Sabbathesque excuses to bang your head in so short a space of time on any other record. If you are new to the whole "doom/stoner/sludge" thing than this album is a brilliant place to start. If you are not, then WHY THE HELL DON'T YOU OWN THIS? Sick, ingenious and undeniably heavy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Crushingly Intense 7 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Iron Monkey are possibly one of the most brutal bands to come out of the UK who dont use major computer trickery. Using thick sludge riffs, throbbing bass and stoner grooves to create a thick sound, the amazing gravel-gargling vocals really do make this an evil, disturbed cd. There are a lot of current so-called heavy UK bands (RSH, Charger and Defenstration) trying to recreate this sound, but Iron Monkey really did create something incredible on this album
An album to kill the commercialised, pre-packaged 'rage' of bands like Slipknot, IM never needed a goat to prove they were dark and twisted. Tune in, stone out and go to a scary place. They're waiting for you

5.0 out of 5 stars Why does nobody understand? 19 Jun 2000
By graham@maclen.fsnet.co.uk - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As I peruse the depths of Iron Monkey reviews all I see is abuse which stems from a lack of understanding. Although slightly bias it does seem i am the only person to get the tongue-in-cheek nature of the band (check out the sites. Although I accept the Eyehategod similarities the sheer evil of Johnny's vocals and, contrary to some veiws, the quality of Andy Sneap's production this is a fantastic AND ultimately audaciously original album. Iron Monkey, we mourn your loss, "fink-dial" and the almighty "big loader" highlight the much maligned and under-rated genius of thesee Nottingham criminals...

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron monkeys are the best kind of monkeys 23 April 2001
By J. Dilks - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I cannot understand what anyone who has any interest whatsoever in Eyehategod and other bands of their ilk would be unable to appreciate Iron Monkey. This album is fantastic, if not a bit short... but then its an EP so I guess I don't have much to complain about in that area either. Simply amazing. What else is there to say?

5.0 out of 5 stars A Beautiful Rarity 19 Aug 2012
By Jared J - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The untimely death of johnny is unfortunate for anyone, but also because he has one of the most extreme vocals in metal. Nonetheless he left us a great collection of work, that few will cherish.

The relation to black sabbath is obvious and apparent. But nothing like tony iommi's wandering solo's and riffage will be found here. This is all heavy all the time, extreme doom. Grab a load beer for this one, six songs of epic crushing doom, and extreme psychedelia is not for the faint of heart or the impatient, these vocals will tear you apart, and keep you wanting more... or maybe ive only built my iron will alongside this record.

This is the best material Iron Monkey were to put out. best tracks: web of piss, fink dial.
5.0 out of 5 stars it's your own fault 22 Feb 2009
By roggetod - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Go ahead, stick to Eyehategod. Buy American. Vote Bush. Drink coke not pepsi. See if anyone cares. But don't blame anyone when you find yourself hearing an iron monkey song, thinking it's Eyehategod, only much lower & nastier, & better & with a sicker singer. Don't blame anyone when you gain the knowledge of the fact that it could be rather expensive to order rare iron monkey cds. Stoner, Sludge, Doom whatever you want to call it. Earache's slowest act. NOLA from Nottingham. Iron Monkey are out there alongside Warhorse, and past their heir Electric Wizard. Although You might think they're potentially not quite as good as Eyehategod.

3.0 out of 5 stars Good, but Far From Godly... 3 Jan 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Great Production, Great Songwriting, Stupid Name. That is the embodiment of Iron Monkey. They play a sort of deathmetal/sludge/hardcore/crust crossover music, almost creating their own sub-genre. All of the songs on this album have very catchy riffs. The only problem I have with this album, is that the vocalist can become a bit repetative, almost annoying at times. He does the job nicely, yet the riffs being played against his almost vomited, carcass-on-drugs vocals only get a bit tiresome. The album as a whole is very nice. I enjoyed listening to it, and I guess I shouldn't be so hard on the vocalist. I must admit, he is original, and deserves credit for that! This album would be enjoyed by anyone who listens to anything from Helmet, to Eyehategod, to Napalm Death, however; only in small doses.
