Kovax - Monkeys
Purveyors of the greasy, deep fat fried riff, Leeds quartet Kovax have released their new high energy single, Monkeys, ahead of their performance at Manchester’s Alt Metal Fest. They have been described as a band who “bring back the fury of 90's hard rock, taking their amp settings from the Deftones,” (Alan Raw, BBC Introducing) but on Monkeys – a song about an intelligent group of armed monkeys who overthrow the human race – their stuttering, swaggering grooves cannot be underestimated.
It opens with a simplistic but towering three note riff, thumping drums underpinning it before the crescendo rises like a revolution, exploding like Manchester’s very own Hyena Kill, rough and ready guitars tangling with furious vocals.
So if you want a slice of ragged North West alt metal, played with conviction and a blood boiling passion, we urge you to catch the band at Alt Metal Fest. A two day event featuring the likes of Betreaus, Footprints In The Custard, Mask of Bees and more, Kovax open the Saturday, with doors at 1:30pm.
