Pure perfection and a modern classic already. Love every second of this album and I put it on repeat and just enjoy it.

From: Swedish Rocker Date: April 3, 2017 at 12:02
Another strong album from Eclipse. Maybe best album of the year so far

From: Eric3 Date: April 9, 2017 at 23:01
Not bad by any means, but IMO overhyped. There is an even stronger emphasis on riffing on this album, and it makes the songs sound derivative from their past 2-3 albums. The choruses are not nearly as strong as the ones on Armageddonize or Bleed & Scream, either. There's nothing on this album that jumps out and grabs you. It's well-produced and well-played, no doubt. But there have been better releases this year already.

From: rick kerch vzla Date: April 20, 2017 at 11:23
Im quite in agreement with Eric3's comment...this album is not as solid as previous ones but still manages to be pleasant and overall catchy ...tracks 1,4,6,7,8 & 9(rocks good!)are the ones for me...85/100

From: Crazysam Date: April 20, 2017 at 22:49
These guys have established themselves as one of the best and most consistent melodic hard rock bands over the last 10 years. I'll agree with a few of the recent comments that mentioned this one isn't quite as strong as the last two albums. But if you liked Bleed and Scream and Armageddonize you can buy this without hesitation. It is more of the same. Great production, quality song writing and musicianship with upbeat, guitar driven hard rock anthems. Monumentum will almost certainly end up in my top ten list for 2017. My score is 87/100

Eclipse returns for another near-perfect stellar album. Keeping with the same formula in their previous releases yet expanding their musical en-devours ever so slightly without alienating their fan base and listening audience. It must be a struggle to top their perfect album, (2012 Bleed & Scream). This album falls in-between "Bleed & Scream" and "Armageddonize". This album has it moments that shine above all, and some other minor moments that fall short from my perspective. This is an album that definitely is something that should not be ignored by anyone...it is that good.I just hope that the band can continue to produce quality and top notch releases. HIGHLIGHT TRACKS: #1,2,4,6,7,9,11. MY RATING: 90/100

Not quite as heavy as I would have liked, but still a strong release. Erik Martensson is so underrated, the guy is really talented.

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: February 6, 2018 at 19:12
Eclipse is yet another one of these bands that litter the landscape in Europe, especially northern Europe. They sit kinda where Dokken, XYZ or Hardline did in the old days, in that their riffs are heavy (and shreddy) enough to be metal, but the vocals keep things solidly in "melodic rock" territory. The lyrics, aside from some anthemic platitudes, are "mature" for the style; these guys are not sleaze revivalists. Erik Martinsson has the perfect voice for this kind of music; trouble is so do any number of singers of these kinds of bands, and so he winds up sounding rather nondescript. Everything is meticulously played and flawlessly recorded, and maybe that's part of my beef. Everything is so pristine I find it a little boring. I just like my music a little rougher and wilder anymore. People that love this style of clean, polished "AOR metal" above all else will go for this. I can appreciate the talent and craftsmanship, but the end result just feels a bit antiseptic to me.

From: MetalllianStallion Date: February 15, 2018 at 1:39
@Doghouse, how did "yet another" "boring" " antiseptic" mouthwash music release make your cut for BEST OF 2017? And the mediocre MHR award goes to.....

From: Doghouse Reilly Date: February 15, 2018 at 22:23
Honestly, I think I was casting about for more HH-friendly bands to fill out my list, rather than loading it up with brutal-metal stuff like I usually do anymore. I do find Eclipse to have a bit more class and style than the typical Frontiers pick-up band. I also think part of their nagging blandness comes from from there being so many bands that have exactly this sound (at least in our cloistered little world).

From: hair metal again Date: January 27, 2020 at 13:21
Very good release for ECLIPSE once again in their usual style with strong riffs & vocals , remarkable songwriting and much much energy!Their issue is exactly what Doghouse states above plus i cant find any really big hooks that could take Monumentum great!"never look back","killing me","born to lead" and"black rain" are the standout songs
