Eclipse – Armageddonize [2015]

Swedish rockers Eclipse return with their new album Armageddonize featuring their trademark combination of huge sing-a-long choruses backed up by massive guitar riffs. Produced by melodic hard rock extraordinaire and Eclipse lead singer Erik Martensson, this album sounds intense with a great mix and a sound that would satisfy any major label. The guitar riffs and solos by Magnus Henriksson also deserve special mention as they create an excellent layered sound that brings each song to life.

Whilst the music is very strong, the main reason to be excited by Eclipse is the passionate vocal deliver by Erik Martensson which really shines on each chorus and makes you feel like you’re in a huge arena. Highlights include the huge opening rocker “I Don’t Wanna Say I’m Sorry” which then leads into the equally impressive euro style rock sound of “Stand On Your Feet” which also features a killer verse hook, the epic chorus line of “Wide Open”, the absolutely massive power ballad “Live Like I’m Dying” which is certainly the jewel in this set of songs and features an emotional vocal delivery and an epic guitar solo, and the frantic closing track “All Died Young” that features a double time rock groove that closes the album out in style.

Despite the fact that the second half of the album becomes a little generic in sound and style, the overall vibe of the album still remains strong and enjoyable. The Japanese edition also features an excellent acoustic version of “The Storm” as a bonus track which really allows the lyrics and vocal melodies to shine through. Armageddonize is a high quality melodic rock album that is recommended to all fans of this style of music and will certainly rank as one of the best melodic rock albums this year.
