Dark Tranquillity “Moment”

I always think it’s strange when I hear traditional metal records like this and also find it alarming that major labels still invest in this stuff in 2020. Makes me feel like I really have no idea what’s going on in the aggressive music space at all. I’m sure it sells like hotcakes and packs festival grounds, but the same could be said about the last five albums covered here if given the same promotional and marketing efforts. These song structures are just silly, it feels like dudes from Guitar Center started a band in the lobby. I couldn’t imagine being the drummer to this band and taking this seriously knowing what I know with the music that’s been released lately. This is a sleepy late Iced Earth-like release that really has no place in today’s exciting modern metal realm. But I guess that’s why I’m not a Century Media label exec.
