review: I had to drive to gary''s house to get this cd back. he was trying to keep it from me, thought i''d actually "forget" about coinmonster if he kept it out of my sight for long enough....hahahaha!!! nice try pal. we received this cd a few months ago for a feature but wanted to review it because this music really turns us all on. bands just don''t get much better than this trio from pennsylvania. i''d heard a soundclip of coinmonster on the net, thought it was incredibly different - loved it, so my expectations for this cd were high and they were definitely met. but the time came when i knew i had to turn the cd over to gary for the review and that kinda scared me. i know the type of music he prefers (super tight, experimental, heavy and progressive) and coinmonster fit the bill. my fears were realized when i received this little note from him, "listening to coinmonster as i write this.....fuck these guys are deadly!!! should not have a problem with this band at all... you said i could keep this cd didn''t you????? ha ha" gary managed to elude me and hold on to the cd for an entire month while i went through coinmonster withdrawl but i got it back on sunday. just barely though....he pretended he couldn''t find it, the lying bastard. here''s what gary had to say, wow!! there hasn''t been a band in years that i can say has totally captured my interest like coinmonster. these guys take me back to the days when rock music had an edge. today three chords seem to cut it for a lot of bands, whereas coinmonster combine incredible heavy rock with intricate time changes and tons of progressions. this in my eyes, basically dictates what coinmonster is really all about! with their latest cd release "guido el sorrio" the band is well on their way to success. word has it that they are in the studio working on their next release......can''t wait to hear it! for a three piece band they have developed a wall of sound which many power trios seem to lack today. intense lyric content combined with an overwhelming ability to play, makes coinmonster an act that not many bands can follow. they leave you with a total interest for what they have to offer. never once was i bored during the entire time i listened to these guys. great job guys!!!

review: Based out of New Castle, PA, COINMONSTER is a different monster, indeed, demonstrated on the tracks of their latest CD, "Guido El Sorrio". This trio mix a variety of diverse styles into an original, hard-hitting sound. Technical adventurism ala Frank Zappa and Rush, heaviness circa Black Sabbath, peppered with a little Beastie Boys urban smarts... all combined into a technically mesmerizing, continually moving sound throughout the discs 16 tracks. terse, meteallic rhythms one moment, funky playful rhythms the next, samples and sidetrips around every bend...fun listening to be sure. Fans of Primus, old school Zappa, Rush, and even Helmet might want to check out this disc. "Guido El'' Sorrio" is different and unique.
