The Skinny: As torchbearers of the UK tech metal scene, Monuments has already forged their complex soundscapes into the minds of thousands with their 3 track EP, We Are The Foundation, and now the band is ready to release their debut full-length album, Gnosis, this August! Due out August 27th in Europe, August 28th in North America, and August 31st in Australia/NZ, Gnosis combines aggressive angular grooves and a spacious melodic ambience that is punchy, yet progressive.

The addition of Matt Rose’s 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. To hear Gnosis‘ first single, “Doxa”, head below! In the short time since their formation, Monuments has already toured the UK and Europe twice, supporting the likes of Winds of Plague as well as Periphery and Tesseract.
