Monstrauss is a San Francisco Bay Area trio that plays heavy alternative rock with prominent grunge and ska influence. Lead vocalist and guitarist Noaa Rienecker, Bassist Jason Hallyburton and Drummer Elijah Stoll have created a combination of excellent musicianship and intelligent, intense lyrics to build what might be the beginning of a phenomenon. Listening to the debut album "Think Tank" it's hard to believe that they are all still in their mid-teens.
