Prog metal band Monuments have dropped a stunning video for the track “Cardinal Red” from their forthcoming record, In Stasis, due to be released April 15 via Century Media Records.
Regarding In Stasis, Monuments state:
“The story outlined in this video is, without question, a metaphorical concept. The true meaning of ‘Cardinal Red’ can be found cryptically within the lyrics. 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 two 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.”
