Tonight at midnight doesn’t just mark the release of transatlantic progressive metal outfit MONUMENTS’ new album, “In Stasis”, but you can also watch a new video for the song “Makeshift Harmony” at midnight CET, 11pm UK / 6pm EST / 3pm PST: https://youtu.be/VEViBL1LN-0

Says the band about the song and video: “Temptation – Being lured in by beauty on the outside, but toxicity on the inside. You know it isn’t good for you, but you’re drawn to it anyway. – ‘Caught in your current, I mistake a vulture for a swan.’”
 
The band about “In Stasis”: “We approached this album without the intention of a specific concept. However – three songs in, what was being written ended up sharing a common theme. 
This feeling of being stuck in the middle, a feeling we experience throughout our lives – within friendships and relationships, love to hate, life to death, belief or non-belief, being in power to total defeat, isolation to freedom. Over the past 2 years, we have been faced with many of these trials, and these struggles can be heard throughout the record.
This record is a culmination of our greatest triumphs and our deepest struggles. We hope it resonates with you, and brings you closer to equilibrium.
We’d like to thank guests Neema Askari (Form Subtract, ex Fellsilent, ex-Monuments), Spencer Sotelo (Periphery, King Mothership), and Mick Gordon (DOOM, Prey, Killer Instinct) for enhancing the record with their unique perspectives.”
