Michael Allen Gould and Jon Fixmer, two stand-out musicians from the Chicago area, teamed up during the summer of 2006 with the objective of creating a musical monster Dr. Frankenstein would be proud of. Inspired by bands such as Iron Maiden, Black Sabbath, Alice in Chains, Tool, Led Zeppelin, Metallica and Queensryche; the two songwriters began their quest to put the pieces of their monster band together. Songs were written, graveyards were scavenged, and new limbs were attached. Finally, the switch was thrown and a powerful stream of electricity surged through the beast's convulsing body and brain. Shows were played and the monster's electric current blazed from the stage leaving fans dazed and out of breath to proclaim...
"The Monster...Is Alive!"
