The best kept secret in music



By: Jason Mansavage

Hailing from Minneapolis and sporting a name like SMB, I wasn’t sure what to expect when I put in this CD. To say these guys are quirky would be an understatement. I’ve used the term circus metal in previous reviews, but SMB epitomize the sub genre and manage to interject it with spasms of funk, techno, electronica and a host of other oddities. “The Process of Assimilation” is a mish mash of metal guitars, funky bass lines, kaleidoscopic chaos, blast beats, bleeps and blurts that are sure to please anyone that rides the eccentric carousel of life.

I can honestly say I have never heard a band this original, although they are comparable to similar freaks such as Dog Fashion Disco and probably Mr. Bungle. Vocalist Reverend John Wheeler IV sounds like a multiple personality basket case that manages to flow flawlessly between metal growls, punk barks, manic wails, nasal whines and the screams of a carnival carnivore.

Feeling a bit camera shy


SMB fills an entire genre of music by themselves. One that they created and mastered from the ground up. Mixing elements of techno and electronic music with a distinct style of funky, geeky, quirk-rock, and amping it up to a heavy metal level of balls out, in-your-face ferocity. Their message is thought provoking, socially minded, politically malcontent, and certain to delight some and offend others. Their live show is tight, seamless, colorful and filled with explosive energy. One could choose to mosh, and dance, and sing along to the catchy tunes during any given song.
The whole ball of wax has now been captured, polished, and fine tuned on SMBs latest full length album "The Process of Assimilation" (out now on Atomic K Records). Each song a completely different experience from the last, yet the entire record flows together like the mighty Mississippi. It is filled with amazing production while maintaining the bands bizarre intensity. Screaming Monkey Boner's fan base is rapidly expanding, and sooner or later, they will shake the world of music to its very foundation.
SMB's full length album "The Process of Assimilation" was produced and recorded by Karl Micheal Demer who produced Platinum selling Grammy Nominated group The Sounds of Blackness, among others. The album is currently distributed by Atomic K Records.
