Limited Gatefold Black LP version of Monument’s latest album “Hair Of The Dog”
Official Relase Date: 30/09/2016
UK’s finest, New Wave of British Heavy Metal heroes MONUMENT return with the follow-up to Renegades” (MGR Music, 2014), their sophomore full length album, “Hair of the Dog”, which is their best musical creation up-to-date. Memorable guitar riffs and twin guitar leads, catchy and powerful tenor vocals, performed by talented frontman Peter Ellis (ex-White Wizzard) and a tight-as-fuck rhythm section that brings in mind the Iron Maiden and Judas Priest legacy are the main elements of the MONUMENT sound, but only few of the reasons why one should get this album. Deriving from the glorious past of heavy metal music but still being firmly rooted in the present (as previously stated by Spanish magazine “Heavy Rock”), “Hair of the Dog” sounds fresh and updated, being also suitable for fans of the heavy-metal-revival movement of NWOTHM and of bands such as Enforcer, White Wizzard, Cauldron and Elm Street. Empowered by the slick, powerful, but still a bit retro-loving production of acknowledged extreme metal producer, Scott Atkins, MONUMENT’s new creation is already a nominee for heavy metal album of the year 2016. MONUMENT is undoubtedly one of the rising forces of the modern-day traditional heavy metal sound and “Hair of the Dog” is the living proof.
