More Info:

Girder is proud to present the 20th Anniversary Edition of Monsterus' long awaited and highly anticipated debut album "Zealots in the Land of Nod" produced by former Capital Records engineer, Phil Mehaffey (James Brown, The Ohio Players, The Breeders) and Monsterus during the summer of 2002 and initially released through B2 Entertainment on August 3rd, 2003. At the time of it's release, Monsterus had become one of Christian music's most talked about new artists. The title track 'Zealots in the Land of Nod' was a hit simultaneously reaching #1 on the Modern Rock + Edge charts in the USA, and Rock Charts in UK. The album single, 'Supernatural!' would reach #1 Most Played and Listened Songs of the Week and #2 Top Requested Song. Overseas, 'Supernatural!' would continue to build momentum cracking the Top 5 on Europe's #1 Christian Hard Music Show "The Rock & Hard Place" hosted by Jonathan Bellamy airing on the Cross Rhythms Radio Network. At it's peak 'Zealots in the Land of Nod' celebrated the rare occurrence of having three songs simultaneously in the Top 10: #3 'Zealots', #4 'Digital Disciple' and #8 'Supernatural!' Impressed with the storyline and theming around 'Zealots,' Monsterus would be approached by Quest Comics President, Pete King to develop a 72 page Full-Color Graphic Novel to feature the band and based on their 'Zealots' story. Monsterus spent the next 6 months working with writer, Jeremy Zehr and premier comic artist, Mark Melton to develop additional characters and expand the storyline. The final script is presented in New York to Quest and work begins on editing and scripting an additional screenplay form of the final draft to pitch to Hollywood studios for motion picture possibilities. Songs from the album would later appear in the sci-fi animated film, 'Aneste Brace of Two' and on it's supporting soundtrack. In addition to being a regular headliner, Monsterus also performed at Rocketown in Nashville, TN headlining their Annual Metal Mania concert event as well as a feature performance at the LifeLight Festival in Sioux Falls, SD, which drew an estimated 230,000 people. Monsterus have played alongside such bands as Blindside (Three Point/Atlantic Records), Staple (Flicker Records) and Nodes of Ranvier (Facedown Records) and was approached to play 3 Christmas concerts over 7 days in mainland China. While on the road, the band would makes it's national press debut in HM Magazine Issue #104 then returned for a Feature Story in Issue #106. HM would then extend an invitation for Monsterus to appear on their HM Hard Music Sampler to accompany the 'GMA' Issue #107 alongside Demon Hunter, Pillar, and Staple. Across the pond in Europe, Cross Rhythms Magazine reviewed over 180 New albums for the new year with only 16 albums receiving a perfect 10 Stars!!! Monsterus and P.O.D. were the only artists in the Hard Music Category to walk away with top honors earning the coveted 10 Star rating!!! In the same month, Greenbelt Festival's official website publishes an article entitled "Why God is in the retail" and cites Monsterus as one of a handful of bands in the States as "up-and-coming" on the heels of P.O.D.! Monsterus has been known from the outset, for their bold lyrical approach and riveting music. They not only bring great music for the hard music listener, but also a challenging message to all who listen. Monsterus also turned the ear and gained the support of some major influential industry experts as Mike Varney (President of Shrapnel Records), as well as garnered numerous endorsements from a growing list of such top music gear companies as DW Drums, GHS Strings, Rocktron, Vic Firth Drumsticks and May Mics. Musically Monsterus competes with the hardest bands in the secular industry. Lyrically they are like no other! If you do have history with this album then we don't need to say anything because if you know, you know. There is nothing quite like them in the Christian market.
