Brave New World is melodic hard rock at its best with Monsters showcasing power, passion and melody combined into an addictive package. Brave New World’s origins date back to 1994 when vocalist Rick Cartey and Passion Street released their ... Full Descriptiondebut album "Million Miles Away". From there, the band went through several line-up changes over the years - with Cartey remaining a consistent presence - and later changed their name to Brave New World. Monsters is the band's debut release and yields a heavier sound than fans of Passion Street will remember, but the infectious hooks and melodies remain. The album is home to the precise guitar work from Pat Heath (also of Vaughn) which combines, with excellent effect, with the keyboard work of Cris J. Playle. This pair along with the vocals of Cartey form the focal point of Brave New World, which is underpinned by the tight rhythm section of bassist Stu Brown and drummer Tommy Folstadli (formerly of Valhalla).
