Two years after the successful release of the “Armageddonize”
album around the globe, Eclipse have established themselves as
rising stars with audiences in Australia,
Japan, America, and Europe (including the 3.5 million
viewers who saw Eclipse's debut on Swedish national television at
With the musical development and maturity shown across the board
on their last two albums, "Bleed and Scream" and "Armageddonize,"
the future has become clear: these guys are destined for stardom!
And now with their new album, aptly entitled “Monumentum,” band’s
amazing abilities are truly on display for the world to hear.
After touring extensively for two years in support of “Armageddonize”,
Eclipse's main songwriters Erik Mårtensson and Magnus Henriksson
reconvened in Erik's new studio in the Swedish countryside in late summer
2016 and started writing new songs. The intention was to write and record an album with no compromise on
either song quality or musical performance from the band.
Singer, songwriter and producer Erik Martensson says:
“With every album, one's way of writing music changes a bit.
What you thought was exciting and interesting while writing one album
can radically change when you start writing the next. I think we
have brought in quite a few new tricks in the writing and recording process
while still staying true to our sound. In the end, it all
boils down to if it's good or bad songs and I think this is the
best album we've done. In my opinion there is not one sing
le weak song on the album and I'm really proud of it!”
We know saying your latest album is the best you've done
is the oldest cliché in rock music, and so instead of
taking our word for it, tune in and listen to the killer opening track
It's melodic rock that's respectful of the roots of the genre,
but with sights set firmly on the future. Fans of the band will not be disapp
ointed and newcomers can look forward to hard rocking
tunes with massive hooks from the first to the final track.
As Erik puts it: "When I go and see a band I just want to hear songs
that make me wanna put my fist in the air
and scream along, and I want everyone around me to do the same.
Well, Monumentum is one giant fist waiting
for a chanting crowd of rockers. We can't wait for the pe
ople to hear it!"
