"Without the intergalactic journey, the legacy of rock music dies," reads Mothership's online description. Try to resist a band that plays blues-laden metal with heavy guitar riffs that is also hoping for intergalactic travel. Mothership is a three piece from Dallas that alternates between an almost AC/DC-like sound on a track like "City Nights" and a broader, heavier and more epic sound on tracks like "Cosmic Rain," "Angel of Death" and the opener, "Hallucination," which manages to set up the transition from slow and steady tempos into the riff-heavy guitar of later tracks. If this is the soundtrack of the mothership, beam me aboard.
