Yes - Union

I can’t rightly decide whether Union was a good idea in concept or not.

While it probably sounded like a great way to merge the merits of both eras on paper, the album itself give the impression that it was a misguided…

Four-piece band hailing from Spain, Monsterholic is a curious beast. In fact, although tagged alternative/prog metal, their music doesn’t follow the beaten paths of this genre and the diversity of the material makes it hard to put in a specific box.
