Montia / Press

“Rock band Montia may be billed as a local act for its performance at this year’s Tiblow Days festival, but it isn’t likely that status will last much longer for the homegrown band. Sammy Orangkhadivi, a Bonner Springs High School graduate and one of the band’s founding members, said after the local festival, things will be kicking up a notch for the band as it prepares to finish recording a new album with a well-known producer and to join rock festivals next year in Europe. But before Montia goes on to the national and international stage, those attending the Saturday night concert at Tiblow Days will have the chance to hear the band’s progressive, powerful sound for themselves.

“Montia is not a newcomer in the Midwest scene by any means. Rocking since 2005 these are seasoned stage veterans that know how to please a crowd, work the stage, and know how to get the most out of every performance. When standing backstage at the Beaumont in Westport on Saturday July 2nd, 2011 – All of Montia was back there waiting throughout the entire set of the band that was on in front of them, just to take the stage. When the time came for them to setup, it was a very organized fury of attack to get everything on, and ready in minimal time. Of the multiple bands that took the stage that night, Montia was the quickest to setup and be ready to roll in under 15 minutes. Once Montia started to play, it was amazing harmonies and pure rock music that blared across the entire venue. They were hitting every note both vocally and with all the instruments almost effortlessly as they rolled through their entire set. READ FULL REVIEW AT..”

“Montia has put together a debut album that is the perfect mix of metal and rock with the versatile talent of the singer and the musicians that make this a complete package. They utilize classic rock styles and add in a healthy dose of clean melodic and epic rock with full on metal sounds to own their own unique progressive genre tag. The band combines angsty metal with great rock and roll and enough of an alternative/progressive sound to make for a start to finish quality debut album. "Lust and Fire" is an appropriate summation of their sound and is a must hear band and CD. Very impressive debut album from a band you will be hearing much more from.....”
