DGM (stands for “Diego Gianfranco Maurizio” a founding member) hails from Italy and began as an instrumental band all the way back in 1994 and has released several albums since then with many a member coming and going over the years. They basically are a power metal band with a few minor progressive twists now and again. To be honest I don't hear much progressiveness on this album so I have to assume that they must have had more of it on previous albums for them to be considered as such.

This is another highly rated album and group that just doesn't do it for me. Nothing bad here. Everything is played quite well and done in the proper manor. It's just really predictable and generic. Even the solos fit into the formulaic song structures which are ok but nothing that really stands out. Nothing new until track 6 when we finally get some piano. It's like haven't I heard all this somewhere before? Not sure this would have really stood out ten years ago. The production is extremely well done and the musicians are top notch but this just lacks the originality and diversity that makes an album interesting for me after so many phenomenal power metal albums have been released. Listening to MOMENTUM leaves me no desire to check out any of their previous albums. Love the album cover though.
