'Commencing Countdown' could potentially re-define what a "true" Rock album should be.

This is Travelin' Jack's second effort and it is certainly a very organic and exciting musical journey! A four-piece hailing from Berlin, however, they don't sound like any other German band before them! Actually, these four could have been from any place, as their sound is pure Rock and global. It is also so nice to hear analogue recording methods again, and with such emotion to boot!

Founded in 2013, Travelin' Jack is a relatively young band – possessing old souls of music, yet they perform and sing like ageless veterans – smooth, soulful and, yes, muscular.

Vocalist Alia Spaceface spins magic not only with her voice but also with her riff-heavy guitar excursions. Surrounded by equally amazing musicians in Flo "The Fly" Kraemer on guitar, Montgomery Shell on drums and Steve Burner on bass, these four have certainly offered up an expansive set with 'Commencing Countdown'!

Comprising of ten grooved-out and riff-filled offerings, the group's second sees them exploring the Rock plateaus and discovering gems all along the way. Each track is a full exercise of what is best in Rock music. Combining several styles and setting each in a foundation of groove-filled Blues, 'Commencing Countdown' bursts from your speakers with heaviness, riffed out guitar and solid pulsating-grooved out foundations that are ever so fluid. The music and vocals drip with emotion and emotive themes with every song being an adventure unto its own!

Nothing is fake or formulated here, this band play with a high degree of heart – they feel every chord they play and every note they sing! Travelin' Jack has given us, in their second effort, a passionate and powerful musical statement. No wonder they are signed to one of the most prestigious labels on the planet! 'Commencing Countdown' could potentially re-define what a "true" Rock album should be!
