Eclipse – Monumentum [2017]

Swedish hard rockers Eclipse continue the amazing momentum of the past few years and release yet another superb album actually titled Momentum which is simply overflowing with memorable fist pumping anthems. Produced by the main man Erik Martensson, Momentum sounds huge and is mixed clearly with great performances from all band members which is all then raised to the stratosphere with awesome hook filled vocals and a tonne of killer guitar solos.

The entire album is pretty stunning but some highlights include the cracking opener “Vertigo” which really lets you know what you’re going to be in for here, the massive rock vibe of “Never Look Back” complete with huge gang backing vocals, the beautiful chorus melodies and guitar leads of “The Downfall Of Eden”, the epic and moody power ballad “Hurt” which builds perfectly to its climax, the bombastic hard rock of “Born To Lead” that does John Sykes era Whitesnake to the max, and the epic album closer “Black Rain” that combines atmospheric subtlety in the verses with a Blue Murder styled chorus that will blow you away.

The Japanese edition features an excellent acoustic version of “The Downfall Of Eden” which sounds amazing even without the huge production and lets Martensson’s vocal melodies cut through nicely. In summary, Eclipse have done it yet again and produced another amazing hard rock album with so much energy that it makes you feel like you’re listening to one of the best live shows you’ve ever been to. Momentum is a likely contender to be the best hard rock album of the year and solidifies Eclipse’s reputation as one of the finest hard rock bands of all time.
