With "Transition" the band Moonages from Marburg is already releasing their sixth album. After her last work "Reflections" could harvest predominantly positive reactions, the expectation pressure is naturally large. But the men around singer Björn Mardorf have with "Transition" a self-confident record in their luggage. They serve us up opulent guitar riffs, combined with concise bass lines and grooves. This can already be clearly heard in the opener "All We Do", which offers a hymn-like straightforwardness that has not been heard from a German band since the dissolution of Fury in the Slaughterhouse. "Listen To The Radio" packs from the first guitar click to the catchy melody to the guitar solo. The song is in any case a highlight of the album, because it contains some surprise moments. But there is one small problem with "Transition": As beautiful as it may sound, you have probably heard it somewhere before. In addition, the drumming is solid at best and does not set any accents.
