Rock The Night E.P.

Monument are a heavy metal band from the UK formed in 2011, intent on bringing back the true sound of British heavy metal. The bands debut release is the five song E.P. 'Rock The Night'.    
Exploding into life, the E.P. gets off to a flier with the title song 'Rock The Night', combining the classic twin guitar attack and galloping rhythm synonymous with the NWOBHM sound. Powerful clean and clear vocals adds to the traditional heavy metal sound and Monument have stamped their intent on the genre in a big way. Keeping up the pace of the opening salvo, 'Carry On' rattles on its way, invoking head banging as it races on at a high velocity. Full of energy and intensity, 'Carry On' is a blistering example of British heavy metal.    
'Midnight Queen' is a solid slab of heavy rock with a punchy, foot stomping guitar riff that will have you nodding your head in appreciation. 'Midnight Queen' is catchy and infectious with a sing a long style chorus. 'Fatal Attack' nods it head towards early eighties Iron Maiden in a big way, from the opening guitar chords to the powerful clean vocals and the very catchy chorus. This is surely going to be a crowd favourite in a live environment.    
Monument have set the heavy metal genre on fire with their debut release and I am sure they are heading out on a great and glorious journey. Bringing the E.P. to a close is the swaggering 'Blood Red Sky'. Big chunky guitar riffs, rumbling bass and thunderous drums produce a foot tapping gem. Keep an ear out for Monument, they are gonna make a monumental impression on the worldwide heavy metal stage.    
Overall, traditional British heavy metal at its thunderous best. Monument have brought the NWOBHM sound back, and added more to make it sound even better.
