MONUMENTS will continue their work at the forefront of UK Tech Metal. The music combines aggressive angular grooves interwoven with spacious melodic ambience that is punchy yet progressive. The broad vocal spectrum adds a new innovative dimension to their complex musical landscape, merging tight, chaotic grooves, screams and cinematic choruses with hooks that will taunt you for hours. MONUMENTS have already forged their complex soundscapes into the minds of thousands with their 3 track EP, “We Are The Foundation“.
In the short time since their formation, the quintet has already toured the UK and Europe twice, supporting the likes of WINDS OF PLAGUE, PERIPHERY and TESSERACT.
