In keeping with the recent trend for delving back into the 70s and even 60s for Hard Rock and Heavy Metal inspiration, Ripple Music gives us the self-titled debut from Dallas, TX's Mothership. Black Sabbath is certainly an influence in Mothership's music but they don't limit themselves to slow dirges. In fact, most of the album is played at a mid-tempo pace. The songwriting is blues-based but with enough bite to the guitars to give it that Metal edge. You can hear Uriah Heep and even early Motorhead throughout the album. The vocals aren't the strongest, a sort of Danzig-light, but the singer knows how to get the most out of what he has. Mothership is a promising band for fans of 70s Hard Rock/Heavy Metal. Here's hoping they don't let themselves become just another stoner band.
