Unbelievable how time passes, not? Meanwhile, the British gothact Inkubus Sukkubus was founded more than 26 years ago. Even if they never were on the radio or part of some trite top 100 list, Candia Ridley and Tony McKormack can say that they are one of the most popular groups of the British underground scene. This band from Manchester, with texts about paganism, witchcraft and the occult, has become one of the groups whose songs were officially downloaded more than any other. The trio (bassist Dave Saunders is with them) is still a welcome guests at many black parties and Mother Moon is their nineteenth album! And yes, it is still released on Resurrection Records, the label that also released theirbmost popular albums Heartbeat of the Earth and Vampyre Erotica.

Lyrically, not much has changed in the course of 26 years, as the trio still believes in surrendering yourself to the forces of nature, and musically there is little new to discover. One could accuse the band of not exploring new musical horizons, but their pagan rock always has been pure class. And so is Mother Moon, although this album consists mostly of acoustic songs (for example there is an acoustic version of their hit song Lose Yourself At The Nymphaeum included) which will please fans of All About Eve (and of course those of Inkubus Sukkubus).

 

 

 

Besides acoustic songs, there is also some goth rock, like the superb opener Mother Moon (mysticism, exciting and you can even dance to it), Shadows In The Darkness is actually Kate Bush with heavenly goth guitars (sublime), Dark Sisters is a beautiful medieval pearl, and the ingenious final song No End To War has just the same epic feel as a Death In June song (yes, you read it correctly). Old wine needs no bush, the same goes for Inkubus Sukkubus!

Ongelooflijk hoe de tijd voorbijraast, niet? De Britse gothact Inkubus Sukkubus is ondertussen al meer dan 26 jaar geleden opgericht. Ook al hoor je ze nooit op de radio of vind je ze niet terug in één of ander afgezaagd top 100-lijstje, kunnen Candia Ridley en Tony McKormack zeggen dat ze één van de populairste groepen uit de Britse undergroundscene zijn. Deze groep uit Manchester die het in zijn teksten graag over paganisme, hekserij en occultisme heeft, werd één van de groepen wier nummers het meest officieel zijn gedownload. Het trio (want ook bassist Dave Saunders zit erbij) zijn nog steeds graag geziene gasten op allerlei zwarte feestjes en Mother Moon is ondertussen hun negentiende album! En jawel, nog altijd uitgebracht door Resurrection Records, het label waarop zij tevens hun populairste albums Heartbeat of the Earth en Vampyre Erotica uitbrachten.

Qua teksten is er op 26 jaar niet veel veranderd, het trio blijft immers nog steeds volop geloven in de overgave aan de natuurkrachten en ook muzikaal is er weinig nieuws onder de zon. Je kan Inkubus Sukkubus misschien wel verwijten dat het net iets te weinig nieuwe muzikale horizonten heeft opgezocht in z'n carrière, wel hebben ze hun paganrock steeds met uitstekende klasse gebracht. Dat is op Mother Moon niet anders, ofschoon dit album grotendeels uit akoestische nummers bestaat (zo is er bijv. een akoestische bewerking van hun hitje Lose Yourself At The Nymphaeum) die de fans van All About Eve (en natuurlijk ook die van Inkubus Sukkubus) zonder twijfel zullen bekoren.

Naast akoestische nummers vind je ook stevige gothrock op dit schijfje, zoals de knappe opener Mother Moon (mystiek, opzwepend en je kan er zelfs op dansen), Shadows In The Darkness is eigenlijk Kate Bush met hemelse gothgitaren (subliem dus), Dark Sisters is een prachtige medieval parel en de geniale afsluiter No End To War ademt net dezelfde heroïsche sfeer uit als een Death In June-nummer (jawel, je leest dit goed). Als oude wijn geen krans behoeft, dan geldt dat ook voor Inkubus Sukkubus!
