Metalocalypse: Nathan Explosion espresso

Where are the monks now?

Whatever happened to the Benedictine Monks of Santo Domingo de Silos? Yet another band that releases a strong album, but fails to follow the album up with anything notable. Sure, they've finally put out a sophomore album, but after most of their fans have given up and moved on to other bands. I expect to see one of them on some VH1 reality show, maybe another member involved with a celebutard. Sure, back in high school it seemed that they were unstoppable and really going places, but they were just yet another musical flash in the pan.

I hope the band had some other skills to fall back on, or at least invested wisely. But that's how it is. One day you're playing giant sold out shows, the next day you're living a monastic existence.
