Self-described as “three dudes with a fetish for 70's rock 'n roll riffage”, you already have an idea of what you’re in for with Monstertone.

The Netherlands based power trio quite simply worship the riff, be it Sabbathian or Kyussian or Fu Manchian. Bridging the gap between the hard rock of decades gone by and the stoner of today, Monstertone have no secret agenda or hidden subtext; they just exist to play balls out heavy music.

Whilst played as pure rock n roll, Monstertone’s sound filters through a stoner prism, meaning the jams jam harder, the sticks hit harder and the groove is groovier; bringing to mind other greats of the scene, such as Graveyard, Kamchatka and Witchcraft. What more reason do you need to tune into Monstertone at Desertfest 2017?
