The Chimpz / Press

“Anthemic, gritty and capable of bridging the gap between hip-hop and hard rock, the tunes are thundering, anthemic and yet still melodic with sing-a-longs. The Chimpz will likely have you searching for your Dickies shorts and Suicidal Tendencies cassettes, which could never be a bad thing. (Tom Haugen)”

“If the rap-metal revolution was just kicking off, The Chimpz would be leading the charge. But even now, long after the genre’s freshness date has expired, The Chimpz bring the goods with enough force to make some noise. These SoCal rap-metal rebels are rockin’ the party … and that means the party is not to be missed. Crank up the stereo, crack open a cold one, and let The Chimpz get you jumping around like a gorilla jacked up on amphetamines.”

“I can only imagine how awesome these guys will sound live; with how much power and passion they put into their recordings, they have set an incredibly high standard for me. Their resurrection of rap-metal is incredibly impressive and I can only applaud such skill. Keep rocking Chimpz, keep rocking. by Kyle Fitzgerald”

“This new EP by far will be the breaking ground for The Chimpz to put a name with their sound that so many have already heard without knowing. Quoting the band once again, “Music is sacred for those who know” so CrypticRock gives this self-titled EP 4.5 out of 5 stars.”

“This latest EP is produced by Ryan Greene (Megadeth) and he engineers everything with the appropriate amount of crunch. This is probably the heaviest The Chimpz have ever sounded, rocking your cochlea with raging rhythms and adrenalized grooves while never forgetting the importance of a good hook. The opening anthem, “War Machine,” perfectly encapsulates the band’s signature style. It’s forged from a hard-hitting metal aesthetic slathered with thick power chords that form the foundation upon which the rap vocals are overlaid before topping the whole sonic concoction off with a clenched fist chorus. Even more metallic is “Battlegrounds,” the biggest bruiser on the EP, brimming with muscular riffs and a soundscape that is all beef, balls and brawn. Lyrics like “Is that all you got / Step up to the plate / I can’t be beat / You only get one shot,” ensure this song will accompany an NFL highlight reel in the near future.”

“They are the NWA of Heavy Metal. I wouldn’t compare them to Korn, Limp Bizkit, or even the collaboration of Anthrax and Public Enemy (“Bring the Noise”). These guys are harder, rougher, and a lot more fun. They epitomize what I loved about late 1980’s/early 90’s West Coast Hip Hop/Rap scene. It’s all about their hood. Real stories, real lyrics, and a “F U…You Can’t Hold Me Down” attitude. When it comes to Rock - they go beyond it and they reach the “Heavy Metal” bar. I’ve seen tons of bands that fuse Hip Hop and Rock together. I like most of these bands. The Chimpz are unique and have created a new sub category under the massive tree of Rock.”

“ TLR! Review Graphic The Chimpz - Who Can I Trust Hip Hop/Metal/Rock Unsigned Posted 3/16/12 6:21PM EST chimpzwcitcover.jpg The Chimpz deliver a rap/metal fusion album with more to it than just metal style instrumentation backing rapped lyrics... there's also a bit of punk to the lyrics. Seriously though, The Chimpz bring a solid sound out from fusing metal, rap and hip hop, punk, and hard rock with a party edge together. Don't get the wrong idea with the above descriptives, The Chimpz are not LMAFO; they're much better. Also don't mistake the titles and subject matter for a no fun sound; the band gets you rocking out to their songs fast. But the message in some of their lyrics are very powerful and positive... but not preachy or holier than thou about it! The Chimpz ride a fine line of rocking fun sound and songs with meaning and purpose, even at their most serious you're going to enjoy their music. . ”
