What is the best Eclipse release in your opinion?

Folks can wait until the new disc is released to vote but we can discuss our opinions in the meantime. 

I've always loved "Are You Ready To Rock", especially the remixed one.

Last 3 are interchangeable, but went with Monumentum

After the first two releases...which were iffy at the least imo...the release of Are You Ready To Rock? grabbed my attention ten fold and thus my liking for Eclipse was born,don't think any of the last few releases have disappointed...all pretty damn good but i'll stick with what caught me in the first place   :)

Armageddonize for me.  I just like every song on it and it feels pretty varied to me.  The Storm and Wide Open are just awesome tunes.

Bleed & Scream and Monumentum bother very good too.  Bleed & Scream has a few songs in the second half though that just don't do much for me.

Based upon samples I've heard, I'm feeling like the new one will probably fall behind the last 3 albums but maybe I'll change my mind after hearing it all.

Are Your Ready To Rock got me into the band and has remained my favorite from them.  While their last 3 albums have all been very good, each release after Are You Ready has been a slight step down, for me.  They've seemed to stick a little too close to the same formula and by the time I heard Monumentum it started to feel a little like been there done that.   Based on these first two promo tracks I'm figuring this will be another slight step down.

  1. Are You Ready to Rock
  2. Bleed and Scream
  3. Armageddonize
  4. Monumentum

yep, agree with all you said... Monumentum felt like a step backwards from those previous 3.

Will be totally on my own here but it has to be The Truth And A Little More.

Are You Ready to Rock (remix).

They've been rehashing those songs ever since.

the last three albums have been great but v unoriginal. I did love Monumentum - that would be 2nd for me with Bleed & Scream a close 3rd.

The new album samples sound worryingly weak but hoping it will be good.

The simple answer is I don't know, but if I consult my trusted ratings, I rate them this way;

1. Monumentum

2. Bleed & Scream

3. Armageddonize

4. Are You Ready To Rock

5. The Truth & A Little More

6. Second To None

Worth noting that the first two are pretty much rated identically, so either of those two will do.

Armageddonize, despite blood enemies. One life - my life was the song that inspired me to make a list in list.ly with my favorite closers (doesn't have to be my favorite track of the album).

Agreed. Also agree that with each release, they seem to take a slight step back. Still solid stuff but a little samey.

Would anyone have changed their vote to the new album?

    • Godd damm! I cun't even reed or spell animoore. It musst be an age thong, I'm getting cold. Title know corectered.
    • Darkhaus - When Sparks Ignite
    • I suppose, I never use that button but it makes sense 
    • I think most of us browse this site using the "Unread Content" button, and we don't always see what sub-forum each thread is posted in. So it never hurts to clarify.  Also, a lot of these guys are pretty dumb, and they need all the help they can get. ;}
    • Not earth-shattering as far as innovation, but the album is very solid musically. A good listen.
    • Received this in the post today...and for me it was a disappointment upon hearing it. Purchased based on the first track released and that I like the two Seven cds,with the debut being top of the class,but this is has a few country type songs which don't sit with me at all...if I'd have heard this disc before I bought it I very much doubt ..or in fact I can definitely say I wouldn't,really disappointed in it.
    • I would agree with that,it was a classy album,full of great tunes
    • Cool! I figured if it's posted in here I won't have to specify that they're Christian only
    • Closest thing I've seen to the point I was going to make. Except, Nordic Union have two bog-average albums and neither would be a good Eclipse album - not even close, imho.  Anyway, for me, there is no doubt in the world that Eclipse's biggest issue is that for a period there for a few years, Martensson was more or less single-handedly writing about a dozen albums per year for every man and his dog. He was just everywhere and it was pretty obvious that was an issue. Some of it was great - I still think the Toby Hitchcock debut is the best album that Martensson has ever written, full stop. And the WET stuff is excellent too, thanks to it being collaborative. But a lot of it was already getting tired early on, such as the poor Ammunition and Nordic Union albums, and that female fronted hard rock band I forget the name of. He was just spreading himself too thin and sadly it's finally come to really show on an Eclipse album. Which is the real shame of it all.  I think the new album is a solid album, but as Glen says above, the best song on it is more or less completely identical to songs on previous albums. It's just got some different lyrics, but otherwise just the same song.  It's a massive ask and not going to happen, but the best thing that could happen for Eclipse is that Martensson just didn't involve himself in any projects for the next two years and concentrate on making good music with Eclipse. Won't happen, though. Also, the different production's been mentioned too - not a fan. It's not offensive, but it just doesn't sound as good as previous albums. 
    • I thought their debut album was excellent. An album that grew on me with pretty much every single spin. I also found a unique-ness in them that is hard to find these days. Great melodies. Very much looking forward to hearing what they come up with next.
