Starting off as an extreme black/death metal project in 2003, Iceland's Momentum evolved to excel at blending tactful post-rock atmospheres, reminiscent of Isis and Cult of Luna, with a Neurosis-esque level of bone-crushing heaviness broken up by soft singing and relaxed clean passages, intense vocal layering over discordant, staccato bursts and sheets of additional eerie sound textures that explode into high-impact power chords.
Momentum’s upcoming release, "The Freak is Alive", sees the band travelling further into a world of their own. A world portrayed through the artwork, lyrics and concept of frontman Holaf where songs connect on a surreal journey through subconsciousness leaving just enough untold for the observer to get lost in their own interpretation.
