EMGtv post second playthrough video from Monuments man John Browne

EMGtv John Browne Monuments I The Creator Devin Townsend Kingdom playthrough

You may recall a few weeks ago we extolled the virtures of EMGtv, the well-regarded pickup slingers’ YouTube channel which showcases the best in guitary talent by inviting them in to the studio and filming them play some songs and stuff.

One of the precursors to that article was a video of Monuments founder and guitarist John Browne playing through one of the tracks from their forthcoming as-yet untitled album, called “I, The Creator.” Holeeee shit did it sound good, and watching John play through it up close and personal was a treat. I don’t know about you, but being a hopelessly shit guitarist myself, I always find these sorts of things fascinating, plus the EMG pickups really accentuated the song well.

Well, EMGtv have a new one for us – again, Mr. Browne – but this time it’s for an older song: specifically “Doxa,” from 2012′s debut full-length Gnosis.

Same format, same studio – same clothes even. Gawd, man, change your threads or something; you must stink by now!

I keed. But anyway, here’s the peeps:

Admittedly, it’s not as exciting as hearing the new song in all its glory, but nevertheless, it’s another good ‘un. As one commenter on the video itself puts it, “His right hand! It’s almost robotic!” Yes indeedy.

As for Monuments themselves, we’re assured that work is continuing well on album number two, and noises coming out of the various members of the camp are very positive. It seems that in Ever Forthright/ex-Periphery vocalist Chris Barretto they’ve found the perfect foil for their particular brand of rhythmic prog metal. Dude certainly has some pipes, and I’m really looking forward to hearing what they come out with. No word on a release date yet, but we’ll keep you up to date when we hear anything.
