I really do hope that this band are the future of their genre... whatever you would call it. This album is an essential purchase for those looking for technical, bouncy, 'intelligent djent' metal.

Monuments continue to grow and develop and Gnosis is an excellent release. Lets start with the production - so many modern releases can be overpowering on either drums of vocals - but everything here sits well, balanced and mixed, dynamic and clear.

And then there are the songs... stunning songwriting on display here. Monuments have perfected that Sikth-esque blend of chaos, melody and order. Opening tracks 'Admit Defeat' and 'Degenerate' flow excellently. Vocals are strong and varied, and the guitars have almost an Eastern-vibe in scales and approach.

Djent, breakdowns, melody and exceptional guitar are present throughout this album, but 'Doxa' really shows all off.

'The uncollective' is quite like modern Struc/tures with elements of Sikth again, time signature changes and chorus melodies abundant.

'Blue Sky Thinking' has an excellent rhythmic hook and is 'djent' executed very well. A stonking down-tuned chorus, great guitar effects and perfect drumming set this tune as one of the standout tracks.

'Empty Vessels...' makes for excellent listening - interesting arrangement and tight work on the drums with nice layers on the guitars.

Overall, this album is one of the best in its field. Start with Monuments if you are new to this - you wont be dissapointed.
