Bloody Monroe is a heavy metal/hard rock band from Toronto ON, Canada. Bloody Monroe consists of Michael Green and David Foster. Bloody Monroe is a competent, well versed group, hungry and ready to make an impact within the music industry and live music scene.


​Bloody Monroe encompasses the overall vision of Michael Green. Michael has struggled for many years battling poverty, depression and finding talented musicians who want to be taken seriously. Michael started Bloody Monroe in Toronto in 2011 after quitting his previous band while finishing college. Due to the state of the mainstream and its absolute absence of rock-oriented music, combined with re-occurring recessions and musicians brainwashed into developing addiction issues. Michael eventually "quit" music for approximately 3 and a half years as he was tired of living in poverty while having 3 post secondary diplomas acquire dust in his closet. Michael moved to Alberta in 2014 with no intention of playing music professionally ever again.


It became evident something was missing... 


In 2017 Michael began re-recording failed demos of the past and booked studio time at The Beach Studios in Calgary with two local musicians. Two weeks and only two rehearsals later, Bloody Monroe was in the studio recording their first EP "How to bury a billionaire..."   

Bloody Monroe released their first 3 song EP entitled How to bury a billionaire... in October of 2019. Within 4 weeks of Bloody Monroe’s EP release “Only You” was chosen to be showcased on X92.9 Calgary’s Alternative radio Xposure with DJ host Matt Berry. 

​Bloody Monroe re-entered the studio in January of 2020 to record their new single "Over Again." The single was released on May 29th on all major streaming platforms.


Bloody Monroe then recorded their first full length album "Some Like It Heavy" and have released 4 music videos to showcase. This release led to Bloody Monroe performing at Canadian Music Week 2020. That same year Bloody Monroe was also nominated for a YYC Music Award for Best Metal Recording. At this time Bloody Monroe’s rhythm section decided to pursue other endeavours once again leaving Michael to look for other drummers and bass players to fill the void. In 2022 Bloody Monroe embarked on a small U.S. eastern tour playing 6 dates in total, most notable shows included performances with The Voice finalist Corey Ward, North Carolina’s Rookie of the Year and CC Coletti.    


In late August of 2022 Michael called his long time close personal friend Jesse Korniew informing him that he would be moving back home to Toronto. Jesse mentioned that our mutual friend Dave Foster's band had broken up and that the both of them should talk about the possibility of collaborating together. Dave Foster is the former drummer and creator of local Toronto band Mabachus (disbanded). Within a month of moving home to Toronto the pair were quickly well rehearsed and ready to hit the Toronto live scene as they have both done many times before throughout their lives, but this time together as Bloody Monroe.


Since then, Bloody Monroe has participated in playing at the 2023 Wacken Metal Battle as well as playing multiple dates at North By North East (NXNE). Bloody Monroe have also accumulated a cover set of Top 40 tunes in which they have continued to perform throughout the GTA playing for various audiences. Bloody Monroe have also been busy writing new material and are preparing to re-enter the studio to record and release new singles/album in 2024.    



"How to bury a billionaire..." and "Some Like It Heavy" are available on all streaming and downloading music platforms.
