The Swedish melodic death metalheads DARK TRANQUILLITY barely needs any introduction. Together with IN FLAMES and AT THE GATES, they were at the forefront of the Gothenburg-style death metal. Now they are back with the twelfth full-length "Moment", thier anticipated follow-up to 2016’s "Atoma", the album was released on 20 November 2020, via Century Media Records.
"Moment" is anoter great release by the band, well played, beautifully produced, the sound is big and clear with great vocals in both the clean and harmful to the harsh and angry screams, great and well written tunes, heavy and cleaver fresh riffing, fine waving drumbeats. I do like what I hear on "Moment", although it may feel a little predictable, they could have taken another step in the development. The guitars that sounds really fresh and updated since the lineup changes that have happened between records, with long time guitarists Martin Henriksson departing after the release of "Atoma" in 2016 and Niklas Sundin leaving this year. Newcomers Christopher Amott (ARCH ENEMY, ARMAGEDDON) and Johan Reinholdz (ANDROMEDA, WIDOW) are doing a teriffic work to fill the gaps and follow the concept and to put their own stamp on it.
Sum: "Moment" a must have for DT fans!
