“Ithaca’s Armageddon Monks create a high-octane sound with sharp guitars and piercing vocals …drawing obvious comparisons to arena rock megastars Metallica and Velvet Revolver … with a certain energy and musicianship rarely seen in bands hoping to become the next big thing” - The Cornell Daily Sun

Feeling a bit camera shy


Armageddon Monks has been together since late 2003, and has since released two full-length albums, entitled "Cataclysm" and "Revival". The original vocalist - one of the founding members and the singer featured on the first 3 musical releases, Aamir Basheer, stepped down in early 2007. A new vocalist, Matt Kelly, has recently joined the group.

Unlike the music of most popular bands today, Armageddon Monks' music is riff-based. It balances intricate guitar lines with a straightforward, pounding rhythm section to get your body moving. A mix of modern melodic vocals and harmonies, and old-school head-banging instrumentals makes this band unique.
