DGM - Momentum

Band: DGM
Album: Momentum
Country: Italy

Release date: March 26, 2013
Label: Scarlet Records
Genre: Progressive Metal
Existed since: 1994


When I first started to listening to this album, I found it a bit boring and uniform. I didnt think they had raised the bar since their last effort, the excellent 'Frame', even though the first video, 'Reason' showed great promise. Now after 20+ listens, the album still grows on me. The musicianship by all members are flawless, the guitar/keyboard solos exciting, and Mark Basile vocal-techniques varied and really just adds that little extra to the music.
As guest musicians they have Russel Allen, vocalist of Symphony X, and Jørn Viggo Lofstad, guitarist in Pagan's Mind.
In music style they are still in the heavier side of progressive power metal, with some leanings towards late 80's/early 90's heavy metal, think Skid Row.

Highly Recommended.
