Momentum: Fixation At Rest


Published September 20, 2010

On Fixation at Rest Momentum offer more
athmosphere than all of the sky combined along with a dozen LSD tabs
of psychadelia and devastating slabs of wicked heaviness. The tracks
amble and trudge at a slovenly pace whilst enthralling the listener
and immersing him completely in the aural experience. The songs , for
the most part, are long and epic in scope and some sport such
memorable choruses that the listener finds himself humming them well
after the following track starts. The sound production is flawless
and clear, yet massive. The musicianship is, as always, stellar, and
the only negative aspect of the affair is that with the band’s move
away from hyper speed extreme metal, their ace in the hole- the world
classs drummer Kristján- is given less opportunity to show off his
massive chops.
