Finding music that is consistently compelling is definitely a challenge nowadays, but New Jersey metal band Monument Of A Memory accomplish the task with just one EP. In five songs, Catharsis keeps you on your toes and excites at all turns. From opener “Affliction” to the appropriately named final track “Departure,” Monument Of A Memory shred, scream and chug with a genuine fire. At the very first listen of the opening lines “Run, run, run for your life!”, you will be captivated and won’t want to go anywhere else. Keep an eye out for Catharsis, due to be released July 8th. In the meantime, check out their bandcamp and give them some love!
