Monuments Posts "Atlas" Video

During a recent short touring break Monuments found the time to wrap up a video clip for the song "Atlas" that was done by Richard Oakes for Dark Fable Media.

A large share of the clip was filmed at this year's prestigious Download Festival in the U.K. while some loyal fans sent in additional live footage. Check out the video below.

Monuments is also about to start a headlining tour with support coming from Polyphia, Villains, and Lionfight tomorrow, September 12th.

This is just the tip of the iceberg, as the band will hit the road in Europe with After The Burial in October, then head back to North America in November with Devin Townsend. A full list of tour dates can be found after the video clip. More...

Podcast

Metalunderground.com Official Podcast, Episode 23

The Metalunderground.com Official Podcast treads some touchy ground this week. Japanese pop-metal sensation Babymetal, a trio of decidedly illegal adolescent girls, has in 2014 sent the global metal community into equal paroxysms of laughter and rage, depending on whom you ask.

The gossip seemed to have quieted down recently, until several Babymetal photo-op pictures began surfacing on various social media accounts, including one with bassist/vocalist Jeffrey Walker of Carcass. Co-host Mike Smith (OverkillExposure) uses the subsequent reactions to examine just why “metaldom” seems always so eager to vomit bile at easy targets.

Next, it’s review time. Co-host Kevin Perez (n0thinghead) tackles “Amanuensis,” the new album from UK progressive metalcore act Monuments. He and Mike both admittedly struggled with the tongue-twisting title, a word Merriam-Webster defines as “one employed to write from dictation or to copy manuscript.”

Finally comes a shared reaction to the latest teaser for the upcoming (yet still untitled) Slipknot album, and a retrospective discussion on the unlikely Iowan superstars’ meaning and legacy over the past fifteen years. Love them or hate them, their place in history is secure and not to be ignored.

To check out the full array of opinions this week, listen in here. You can subscribe via iTunes or RSS. Enjoy, and don’t hesitate to offer feedback. Even if you want to call us names.

Monuments Posts New Song

Monuments has come a long way since starting as a side project of John Browne (guitars; Fellsilent) and Josh Travis (guitars; The Tony Danza Tapdance Extravaganza).

From a surprise appearance on BBC Radio1 to debut full-length, "Gnosis," the group immediately found a fanatic audience. Fast forward two productive years later and Monuments - now with Chris Barretto (ex-Periphery, Ever Forthright) on vocals - has grown tremendously.
