The joke about British djent band Monuments‘ new song in the title might have worked better if the existence of the famous Higgs Boson ‘God’ particle hadn’t already been found (last year, by scientists in Switzerland, if you didn’t know), but it’s my article and I’m going with it, so there.
So Monuments were one of the star features at Spring Fest 2013, the annual social & cultural festival at the Indian Institute of Technology in Kharagpur, India, which also featured the likes of Goddess Gagged, in a country where the metal scene is really taking off.
To celebrate, the band played a brand new, hitherto unheard song – “Higgs Boson” – for the Indian crowds, and some kind soul was gracious enough to film it for fans who were not able to attend.
Although the audio quality isn’t great, you can hear the general groove of the song, and the crown seemed to dig it. Given the delay in the release of their debut album Gnosis (which eventually surfaced last year through Century Media), it should be no surprise to learn, as frontman Matt Rose states in the video, that the song will be featured on their new album which is already well under way.
Monuments are heading back out on the road soon – albeit closer to home – when they support Born Of Osiris along with After The Burial on the former’s European tour, which kicks off in Cologne, Germany on February 22nd and will take in Belgium, the UK, the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Italy, Austria, Czech Republich, Denmark and Norway. Not much then. Full details are available in the ever-mother-loving Monolith events calendar!
