For those who know their music tastes, for those who are firm believers that monotony provides security, and those who go ballistic when a band ventures into unexplored musical territories and ramble infinitely over the “they have sold out” argument, INKUBUS SUKKUBUS is the band for you. With their well-defined mix of hard-rock, tints of metal, folk, and wiccan themes and imagery, ‘Mother Moon’, keeps the connection with their fans by not changing an inch and working the same formula over and over and over again. You play one album, you play them all. This is not necessarily bad, once again, some people like their old same old and any degree to one side or the other will definitely disrupt the force. ‘Mother Moon’ in twelve songs is able to repeat itself even though songs have different titles like: ‘Lose Yourself at the Nympheaum - Acoustic’ & ‘Zephyrus’, or ‘Mother Moon’ & ‘My Demons’, if the listener is not paying too much attention, they sound just the same thanks to the wonder formula. It makes you remember how back in the days of punk it was hard to distinguish one band from the other thriving in the 3-chord cliché. This applies to each song with one exception: ‘Dark Sisters’.
Conclusion: ‘Mother Moon’ is another addition to the prolific catalog from INKUBUS SUKKUBUS offering nothing new or exciting but hey! that´s the way fans like it and it has worked for the band for a while now… why fixing something if it isn't broken right?
