Monstrosity – Vocalist Brian Werner

Monstrosity – Vocalist Brian Werner
Interviewed by Robert

As one of the longest running forerunner’s for the Florida Death Metal throne, Monstrosity has been a force to reckon with since 1990. From the classic IMPERIAL DOOM to the most recent output, a split cd also featuring death metal giants Incantation as well as Rottrevore and Repulsion for Relapse Records, Monstrosity has maintained a loyal worldwide fanbase, toured the globe almost constantly and endured their share of line up changes. Having seen the band in concert over five times during various stages of their career, I was as anxious as any to hear what the band had been up to these last few years.

Upon attending the NAMM Summer Session conference (a music industry trade show that just so happened to take place in my hometown of Austin, Texas) I had the chance to meet many interesting musicians. A good number of them were death metal related. There was Derek Roddy of Hate Eternal fame, David Vincent of Morbid Angel, and Tim Yeung from Vital Remains hosting the World’s Fastest Drummer competition.

Florida has long been home to a great number of death metal bands. One band that has been plugging away at it since the early 90’s is Monstrosity. Drummer Lee Harrison recently spoke with us from Tampa where the band are currently planning their tour for their new CD “In Dark Purity.” Besides Nile, Monstrosity are about the only pure death metal band that I’ve gotten excited about in recent years. Why you may ask? Well it’s because they aren’t just noise. They have distinguishable riffs that are often technical yet still memorable. Their latest CD “In Dark Purity” is available now from Conquest Music. This is THE death metal CD of 1999. No other death metal band came close to this level of intensity and musicianship in the death metal realm.
