REVIEW : Twenty Dark Seven - Momentum (2017)

20DarkSeven is a brand new and ass-kickin' heavy rock band that was founded by former PUMP singer and founder Marcus Jürgens (also ex-Brainstorm) and guitar wizard Peter Wagner (ex-Wicked Temptation, Piledriver) in January 2013. The two of them found the missing 'pieces' to complete the puzzle (Marcel “Selly” Berhardt (ex-PUMP) on guitars, bassist Christoph Renner and drummer Markus Herzog) and finally TwentyDarkSeven took flesh and blood and nowadays the band strikes back with a new record which is entitled "Momentum".

The sound of "Momentum" can be described as modern heavy rock and includes big hooks, a powerful and in-your-face sound, heavy guitars and a strong dose of 'darker' melodies enough to please every heavy rock fan out there. Imagine a mix between PUMP and Wicked Sensation with a big dose of 'modern' Dokken and you'll get the picture of TwentyDarkSeven's sound.

The guitar work of  Peter Wagner and Marcel „Selly“ Bernhardt is pretty impressive and that's a thing that can be heard in every single moment here. Heavy riffing, short but intense solos that you'll be begging for more makes the final result even more attractive. Plus to the above Marcus' powerful vocals and the solid rhythm section and there you have a band that aims for big things.

Every single track here flaws in the same in-your-face way and it's kinda of difficult to pick a song as my favorite. But, if I had to choose, a few these would be the fast-paced and with lots of attitude "Shotgun Heart", "Falling Away", "Shadows On The Sun" and "This Side Of Hell".

Overall, I would say that TwentyDarkSeven with "Momentum" delivers a well-crafted, simple and powerful modern hard rock album with tons of attitude that will be appreciated by both fans of PUMP and Wicked Sensation but, also, the fans of this particular sound. 

Rating : 8/10
