BRIDGE TO MARS by Bridge To Mars

BRIDGE TO MARS by Bridge To Mars
(Pride & Joy Music)

Their influences range from, Led Zeppelin, Thin Lizzy, Yes, The Black Crowes, The Who, Soundgarden,  Rush, Black Sabbath, Van Halen and ABBA. That is pretty much what you will experience from the self titled debut release from the Swedish based power rock trio, Bridge To Mars. JJ Marsh:  guitar/vocals (Glenn Hughes/Hughes Turner Project), Robert Hansen bass (Beardfish) and Thomas Broman: drums and cowbell (Silver Ginger 5/ Conny Bloom). The songs on this album have solid grooves with powerful chord progressions and melodies that are memorable but inventive. From the opening track, "Days That Never Came", with its spaced out arrangements and smooth vocals to the next track "Mirror Magic Spirits" with it's melodic and tasteful guitar work the band plows through 7 more songs , each one unusual and totally original. It's just the whole vibe the band puts on to these tracks that doesn't make just one person stand out over the other two. This is a band in all manner of the word. The album carries a totally positive vibe with lyrics easily digestable and plenty on the amazing guitar work by JJ Marsh. When I listen to this album I hear a band  expressing themselves honestly through highly personal lyrics and exceptionally complex music. It is also that rarest of treats: a rock solid album from start to finish. A very strong debut outing definitely worth checking out - Highly Recommended
