4 stars Scale the Summit is another new band on the prog scene. Monument is their first album, and it is a very well-executed, and produced album it is.

From the get-go, the most apparent influence at play is Canvas Solaris. They are very fond of the technically proficient chops, riffs, passages, etc. that CS employ. Wolves and the ironically comicially titled Penguins in Flight, the former showcasing very progressive time signatures, while the former boasts Petrucci-esque guitar chops.

The drummer is particuarly gifted, playing very tight rhythms tirelessly. The bassist is very well heard, and his skills on the four-string are virtually unlimited and unmatched. The production is also very good for a self-financed album.

Don't hesitate getting this album if you are a fan of Canvas Solaris. Plus, you'll help STS save up for a tour van. :D
