Delusions of Grandeur (1999)

 

 

 

When Chris left the band in early 1999 several bass players were tried out.  Then, following a coincidental meeting at a Brutal Truth gig, Jon recruited his brother’s friend Ryan of Lower Hutt grind scum Backyard Burial. The band entered C. Moore Sounds studio in Wellington to record this four-track EP.

Delusions of Grandeur was recorded using triggered drums which were and still are very popular in metal, however, it did give a more “plastic” sound that the band was not used to.   Monsterworks continued to gig regularly in Wellington and Palmerston North and even eventually produced a first video track for “Blokk”.
