Monkey 3 have music elements as mentioned of psychedelic stoner, but there are also some hints of prog, post rock and space rock. Mostly with a rather hypnotic fundament, a repetitive nature. Their self-released debut came out in March 2003. Sphere is their sixt release and three years after the successful album Astra Symmetry.
The four piece Monkey 3 is infamous for its onstage intensity that has crowned prestigious festivals such as Roadburn, Hellfest and Desertfest.
