about

The vision of Monument took form in 2009, initially being a mere modest experimental recording endeavor by Henrik and Linda (the songwriters of the band), whose mutual interests in the rather odd spectrum of music brought them together. Teeth & Tails was recorded during the most dark, rainy and foggy west coast autumn/winter days. The drum machine on the Ep was utilized in order to obtain a 1980's static mood to it, whereas the fx pedals on the trumpet set the tone. Yet, the concept soon got backed up by a full live band with Jonny on drums, Fischhaber on bass and Tim on trumpet, along Henrik on guitar and Linda on vocals...

"Now the swedish gothrocker MONUMENT release their debut EP "Teeth & Tails" on afmusic to spread their unique dark and impressing tunes around the world. The EP will be available as a download from February 3rd on in every well-known download store and from March 2nd on as a 10" vinyl release in the stores and via Bandcamp"


"The Swedish MONUMENT was formed in 2009 and the Post Punk of the early 80’s and especially the one influenced by the British scene was their field of expertise. The results in the beginning of 2011 are most striking; the band does not just offer a retro-trip to the past but actually accomplishes something astonishing. It seems that the band took a PhD in early 80’s scene and this Ep looks and sounds like a forgotten masterpiece from that era. Especially in its vinyl edition that feeling will be emphatically stronger. And though ‘Jennifer’ is the “hit” of the release judging at least by its faster tempo the song that stays like a punch in the guts is ‘Teeth And Tails’ with its slower pace and “dirtiness” of its sound. In less than a month the EP will be released and these three songs make me think that it will be something monumental for sure"
