After years of teasing, a demo/EP, and near-crippling lineup changes, Monuments‘ debut album Gnosis is now available to be heard by all! I can only imagine Monu-mastermind John Browne’s relief to finally have this album out there! My initial expectations of Gnosis weren’t as high as others’, it seems. I was afraid that they had missed the boat on the genre’s peak excitement and there wasn’t much more coming out from the djent scene that would wow me. After hearing Gnosis though, I can put those thoughts and fears to rest. This album exceeds expectations and grooves for days.
Listen for yourself over at Rock Sound. Gnosis is out August 27th (EU) and September 25th (NA).
