    Nice to hear!! That took quite a while ;)

    Saw them with Periphery while they still had their vocalists and then at Euroblast completely instrumental. Although both were shows were really great, I missed the intensity when they performed without vocalists.

    So who is the new man?

    So stoked for this. Shame Neema and Greg left, but I'm sure they've settled on someone equally as awesome.

    Hopefully the new vocalist can hold up to Neema and Greg, they were awesome and made the band sound really unique (not that the rest of the band isn't).

    Judging from the time they had to find a new one this new guy MUST be good. :D
    Really can't wait to hear him!

    Hope it's this guy (Mutiny Within). John posted this video a while back on Facebook I think saying he's love him to do vocals for Monuments, and by looking at the top comment on the video it may just be possible...

    So glad you guys are keen to accept something new. All too often bands have moved in different directions and been openly slated for having anything that doesn't conform to their expectations, even before anythings even been released!
    That being said, that opinion is wholly valid, and when stuff like this happens, its unavoidable that it wont be exactly the same band that you originally got into!

    Obviously Neema + Greg's work was completely unique, we tried experimenting with people that we could play with that style of rhythmic writing with, but for the most part, that really didn't work..

    More than anything I'm completely stoked that our new frontman has a fresh perspective, and his own groove and style merges in a strong, new, unique way that works without any compromise! Cheers to all who have been patient along the way, and even more thanks to those of you who welcome to the new sound with open arms! :yesway:

    well the nu metal warbling was the deal breaker for me, so maybe I will be able to enjoy this band now :lol:

    Not a fan of that style of vocals. :/ I'm not sure I'd be very keen on that with Monuments.

    Yeah he definitely couldn't pull off Greg and Neema's stuff, but Monuments said they were looking for a new direction to head in, still there's time to see what they pull out of the bag!

    I'm not against new directions, just going from Neema and Greg to some power metal sorta shit would be a bit much for me I think. :lol: I think someone like Serj Tankian would be amazing. His voice would suit Monuments nicely. That said I'm, stoked to see whoever has been picked. :) I just want an album so bad aha.

    Gnarly, I only had a few demos, this will be some righteous jams.

    The new guys awesome. I can assure you guys of that ;) . PLUS he is totally a step outside of the whole cliche'd metal singer at the moment. A really unique talent :)

    Who is the singer(s) in these clips (fuse within my anger for example)? It doesn't sound like Neema/Greg.
