Review: Honeymoon Disease - The Transcendence

Honeymoon Disease is another good band from Sweden. Man, I am starting to wonder if what is happening with the young Swedish headbangers is something similar to the NWOBHM in England in the 80’s. The band adopted Ramones-like nickname and recorded their first album, The Transcendence, with this line-up: Jenna Disease (Vocals & Guitar), Acid Disease (Guitar), Admiral Disease (Bass) and Jimi Disease (Drums), but soon after the release of the record, Nicklas Hellqvist (Neck Disease) replaced Admiral as their bass player.

The Transcendence brings up a 70’s pure rock n’roll sound that will please the fans of Deep Purple (MKII), Rainbow (Dio years), UFO, Thin Lizzy, Suzy Quatro, The Runaways, among others. The guitar playing of the two women in the group is very good, specially the twin-guitars moments. Jenna’s vocal reminds me a little of Doro Pesch from Warlock, but without much of its raspiness. All songs have similar qualities, but if I had to pick up the best ones it would be Imperial Mind and Breakup. The production of the album is excellent and it sound like it was recorded live in studio with all the raw energy that a live recording can have.

Many reviews are praising Honeymoon Disease as one of the best albums of the year. I would not say that yet, but they are surely in the right path to the top.

Remember: It’s a long way to the top if you wanna rock n’roll.
