German based Travelin Jack deliver their rocking debut outing, 'Commencing Countdown' with a rock vibe that is from an era when rock music was cool and had attitude. Raw-bones rock and roll without rehashing someone else's back catalog. Also not an over produced artificial studio sound. While the classic rock influences are their they still manage bring their own flavor and swagger to the table. The band is comprised of, Alia Spaceface on vocals, guitar, Flo The Fly on guitar, Steve Burner on bass and Montgomery Shell on drums. As I listen to the various songs on the album, I hear numerous influences from Thin Lizzy, Rush and Deep Purple. That said, I think that Travelin Jack are more than the sum of their influences. Their songs cover a range of tempos and emotions. There aren't any weak tracks on here. My favorites are "Metropolis", "Keep On Running", "Cold Blood", "Miracles" and "What Have I Done". Attitude and swagger. Travelin Jack
brings all this and more. A power quartet with a bold infused sound with rocking guitar riffs from Flow The Fly. Solid precision drumming from Montgomery Shell and the uninhibited energized vocal delivery of Alia Spaceface. A must for any true rock fan. Travelin Jack are the real deal.
