THE HAUNTED Guitarist OLA ENGLUND Test Drives MONUMENTS' JOHN BROWNE Signature Schecter TAO-6 Guitar (Video)

The Haunted guitarist Ola Englund has shared his latest installment of Ola Testing Shit. Check out the clip below.

Englund: "Trying out the Schecter TAO 6 John Browne (Monuments) guitar! A complete djent-machine."

Transatlantic progressive metal outfit, Monuments, released their fourth album, In Stasis, on April 15th. To celebrate the release, the band dropped their new music video for “Makeshift Harmony”

“Temptation - Being lured in by beauty on the outside, but toxicity on the inside. You know it isn't good for you, but you're drawn to it anyway. – ‘Caught in your current, I mistake a vulture for a swan,” states Monuments about the new track.

Adds the band about In Stasis, “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 2 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.”
