There are several bands by the name Monument. 1) Monument are an offshoot of British hard rock band Zior, who released two albums in the early Seventies. Their only album, “The First Monument” (1971), is the result of an all-night, drunken jam session involving the four members of Zior. The album features a heavy, distorted, Hammond-drenched sound, and Zior’s trademark occult lyrical themes. 2) Monument are an emo band from Washington, D.C.
