Listen to Momentum’s Momentous New Song “Gauntlet”
Unsigned and Unholy double-alumni Momentum are unsigned no longer: Dark Essence Records snapped them up right quick after being impressed by their set at the 2014 Roadburn Festival. Congrats, dudes! It always makes us happy when unsigned bands we feature get picked up for a shot to reach the metal world at large.
Dark Essence had good reason to act fast: this progressive doom outfit is positively fantastic, which is why we’ve featured them twice (now thrice) already. Momentum are doomy without being boring, proggy without being wanky, atmospheric but not droney, slick but not over-produced… basically, they’re awesome without being dicks about it. The band has just released a song called “Gauntlet” that reminds me just what I liked so much about this band in the first place; stream it below.
The Freak is Alive comes out on February 9th, 2015.
