Biography

Beograd, Serbia (2002 – present)

There are more than 1 band called Monera:

(1) Monera is a band from Belgrade, Serbia. Since its foundation in 2002 Monera has recorded several home-demo and one studio album (“Homework”, in 2007) which received numerous good reviews. Although they define themselves as Metal/Rock/Grunge, their music incorporates various musical styles and “defies categorisation” [1].

Reviewers from different magazines found songs on Homework to be “catchy as hell and fun” [1] and also “more appropriate for parties than quiet hours” [2], but their latest work includes a set of milder acoustic songs and a set of, exactly the opposite - aggresive high-gain songs of an increased complexity and much darker overall atmosphere. The “rich textures” [1] of Monera’s music include “bluesy guitar solos, occasional Radiohead-like harmonies and even southern Corrosion Of Conformity / Alabama Thunderpussy straight-forward rocking and brutal riffing” [3] to provide means of expressing an extremely wide range of emotions. The vocal performance of Monera’s frontman, Jake O’Bayne, has been compared to that of Layne Staley, Brian Molko, Robert Plant, Serj Tankian and even Dave Mustaine [3,4,5,6].

Still unsigned, Monera had some substantial success on regional Demo festivals and competitions in 2009, even reaching the selection of final 10 out of 300 bands applied for this year’s Nektar Demo Fest in Banja Luka (BiH) and also National finals of GBOB.
