Here be Call Me Dragon


IF CALL Me Dragon is the name of These Monsters' debut album, then my god you call it dragon.
Because the group is a snarling beast which roars out of the speakers with a thunderously huge prog punk sound and goes straight for the jugular, and no arguments.
Forget convention - the Leeds outfit are a largely instrumental act, with the tunes on Call Me Dragon led instead by a dogfight of riffing guitars and growling saxophone lines, which jockey for position over a brutal rhythm section which delivers extended pounding soundscapes.
It's an intimidating sound and totally compelling - in fact, These Monsters will blow you away like you're downtown Tokyo.
