Being a staple in the music industry for over two decades is legendary status, but maintaining a constant flow of fresh ideas in art for that long is a different story. However, Tremonti makes that task look easy with their most recent album, Marching in Time. As usual the band brings something fresh while staying in line with the things that original fans can attach themselves to. From beginning to end it’s a masterpiece that was very much needed.
“A World Away” is the song that starts the album off in a giant way with immediate chugs and drums that could get anyone excited. As the song progress, the realization is that we are in for something very different than the previous album A Dying Machine. Tremonti has this unique talent to blend heavy and chunky together with an absolute catchy chorus and it’s quite evident that these talented musicians have polished that skill up even more throughout this album and one of the songs that showcase this the most would be the second single and the title track of the album “Marching in Time”. This track is the longest of the album and it’s also a perfect outro, feeling like the perfect package of every element of the album. Of course, Tremonti continues to prove himself as a singer and the confidence absolutely radiates throughout this album, especially in the ballads of the album, songs like “The Last One of Us”.
Their previous work was essentially a novel in audio form as Mark is a great storyteller through his music. Marching in Time doesn’t seem to be one full story, but rather each song tells its own story, and each song feels special and has a unique message. Emotions are high on this record between both the music and the lyrics, the band took what was a very rough year for all of us and created something that we can relate to while keeping us inspired to look toward the road ahead.
One of the most notable things that tend to go unnoticed in today’s world of streaming and digital downloads, is the way that this album is packaged. When listened to from front to back multiple times, everything flows all together, and the album has a bit of nostalgic feeling because of that reason. There is a feeling that the band really put some thought in the progression and order of the album.
Pure passion is what this album represents. This is evident in the lyrics, music, and overall tone of the album. One would easily be able to tell that these guys are very excited to put together some new music for all of us to listen to. Marching in Time is a musical powerhouse with uplifting but realistic messages. This may just be the band’s best work to date with no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Tremonti is here for the long haul, and we will continue to support and “March in Time” with him.
