“King Of The World,” the lead track to the impending Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight EP by New Jersey-based metal/hardcore quartet ROBOTS AND MONSTERS is available for public streaming.
With its roots tracing to bands including Mucky Pup, The Bloodhound Gang, and more, ROBOTS AND MONSTERS owns a sound that deftly combines the commanding crunch of metal with the groove, punch, and emotion of hardcore and post-hardcore, a trait which finds the band comfortably sharing bills populated with any type of aggressive music. Their upcoming Nothing To Fear Nothing To Fight EP follows a concept about battling your own mind, the theme backed by high-energy metal and dosed with old-school hardcore. The seven-song storyline was recorded at Portrait Recording Studios with engineer John Ferrara, and mastered by Chris Badami, and features art by bassist Bill Bergmann.

ROBOTS AND MONSTERS was formed in the Fall of 2013 by three lifelong friends, brothers Derek and Dylan Gadino and Bill Bergmann. Shortly after recording their Down To Ash debut album as a trio, Kevin Powers, who has toured with bands like Mucky Pup and Bloodhound Gang, joined as the band’s permanent drummer so Dylan could concentrate on vocals for live shows. Bergmann and Powers had become friends when Bergmann was enlisted to play bass for Mucky Pup on a handful of European and national tours. In the Summer of 2015, their album Down To Ash debuted at #23 on the CMJ Loud Rock chart – they were the only unsigned band on the list. ROBOTS AND MONSTERS was also featured on VH1’s That Metal Show as a “Pick Of The Week” and became one of the ten most requested acts on WSOU 89.5, Seton Hall’s Pirate Radio, the nation’s most popular noncommercial Metal station.
