While His Hero Is Gone simply repeated the production approach taken with the first 7 and 15 Counts of Arson, the end result is a masterpiece: a tight, cohesive, thought provoking call for change from street level. Like 15 counts of Arson, Monuments to Thieves was recorded at Polymorph in Oakland, CA, by Dan Rathburn. Listen album. Crust Punk. His Hero Is Gone.

Monuments to Thieves is the second studio album by American crust punk band His Hero Is Gone. It was released on November 18, 1997 through Prank Records. It was recorded by Dan Rathburn at Polymorph in Oakland, California. Featuring the band's typical crust punk sound, album deals with topics such as institutional racism and oppression. That was until 1997 with His Hero is Gone's Monuments to Thieves. To stress how important this release is to say that it managed to find balance within the seething cauldron of hate that formed this genre. D-beat is notoriously linear in its structure, the signature drum beat becoming a limiting factor upon the other instruments. Cursed's entire sound has a basis within His Hero is Gone's work and Disfear have taken riffs and song structures from this for their Live the Storm album. Suffice to say, this is not the end of their influence and probably never will be. This band will continue to be remembered in the future and Monuments to Thieves will be a testament to that legacy.

What His Hero Is Gone created on Monuments to Thieves may never be recreated. Its more than an album: its a feeling. The emotion behind the songs-behind every note-is so obvious the sonic landscape they created with their songwriting is vivid and real the production delivers it all with a sound that just reaches into the listeners soul. To call it crust is such a soft sell this is art of Neurosis magnitude, albeit delivered in a very different, and far more concise, package. Bands that play music with this much feeling often cant last, and sometimes its good they dont. Band Name His Hero Is Gone. Album Name Monuments to Thieves. Type Album. Released date 1997.
