A Bridge Too Far



Monument are a heavy metal band from the UK formed in 2011, setting the genre alight with their old school British heavy metal. With an E.P., two singles and an album released to date, the first single from their second album has just been released.    
Since the release of their debut album last year Monument have toured Europe and the UK, spreading the NWOBHM sound to their fans. Building on the success, they are set to unleash their second album in the summer, and have released 'A Bridge Too Far' as an appetiser. And what a mouth watering appetiser it is. The classic twin guitar lead in full swing with a galloping backline as support. 'A Bridge Too Far' echoes the heady days of the eighties, when the likes of Iron Maiden, Judas Priest and Saxon were setting the world alight with the pace and power of their music.    
Monument are sparking life into the NWOBHM genre and with the release of their second album, titled 'Hair Of The Dog', they will be raising the fists and banging the heads of their legions of fans, as well as attracting new ones.    
Overall, a superb galloping song, with a twin guitar lead echoing the eighties NWOBHM sound.
