Formed in the streets of East London by vocalist Peter Ellis, MONUMENT is bringing back a sound that has been missing from the UK for nearly 30 years… True British Heavy Metal!
With thunderous, melodic bass tones, dual guitar harmonies, rock-solid drum beats and signature falsetto wails, the band is determined to make a difference in today’s Metal scene and is celebrating a sound that is rooted in melody and good songwriting that will inspire a new generation of Metal fans.
True Metal is back in the Empire and MONUMENT will undoubtedly be the band at the forefront of this new wave.
