24. DGM – Momentum
This Italian progressive metal band is basically ripping off Symphony X. Like, that’s all that DGM does: make Symphony X songs. Why is it on my list of favorite albums of the year? Because I ****ing love Symphony X. Hell, the first track on the album has Russell Allen (Symphony X’s vocalist) singing on it! The worship couldn’t be more blatant. But because of their worship DGM are meticulous students of progressive metal. They know how to write a prog metal song that hits all of my weak spots: technical chops from every musician, guitar riffs that are thick and dynamic, vocals that make me wish I could sing more than anything in the world. This kind of metal music makes me pump my fist, makes me want to sing along, and makes my brain work overtime trying to figure out the time signatures.
