The video can be viewed here:

‘William Kidd‘ was produced and mixed by Tony Newton (IRON MAIDEN – Book Of Souls Live Chapter) and mastered by Ade Emsey (IRON MAIDEN) at Table of Tone Mastering.
‘William Kidd‘ offers four and a half minutes of blistering, TRUE British heavy metal in the vein of what has so far made MONUMENT a sensation with fans across the world looking for the next great band to come out of the United Kingdom.
The forthcoming album ‘Hellhound’, consisting of 9 plus 3 bonus tracks of pure British heavy metal, will also be available in a limited 500 copy Boxset version, red, yellow and orange marbled double vinyl and on black vinyl (9 tracks only). Twin guitar melodies, loud bass tones, thundering drums and soaring tenor vocals are all present in abundance. Lyrically, the album draws inspiration from a variety of sources like history, urban London life, the occult and personal relationships.
Tony Newton’s inclusion as the band’s producer has captured the band’s real sound for the first time and that sound is unmistakably British. To drop a few more names, the album was engineered by the band’s very own guitarist Dan Baune. Produced and mixed by Tony Newton (Iron Maiden – Producer of “The Book Of Souls: Live Chapter”) at Barnyard Studio, Essex, UK and mastered by Ade Emsley at Table of Tone Mastering.
„Hellhound“s artwork, design and layout was done by graphic designer Stan-W Decker (Masterplan, Vanden Plas, Resurrection Kings, Stryper).
