Mother Bass: Mother Bass

Mother Bass is a four musician collective based out of The Netherlands. After a few years of jamming together they decided to make it official after guitarist Friso Woudstra joined forces. The band released their self-titled debut in April of 2018.

Mother Bass have created a fine alternative rock album that while lacking a progressive complexity more than makes up for in conviction and soul. There is a Seattle grunge influence at play here led by the powerful voice of Daan Dekker. He has a gritty yet melodic delivery and is a fine singer. Backed by a solid rhythm section; Roel van Erp (bass guitar) and Roy Veltien (drums), this four piece rocks pretty hard beginning with the slow burning opening track “Five Fifteen”. Powerful vocals and riff progressions give this tune plenty of heft but the band do slow it down delving into mellower realms. A heavy distorted guitar riff begins “Silver Spoon”, a heavy almost doomy piece with Axel Rose style lead vocals. Cool tune. The galloping riffs in “Wolfman”, the moody guitar exploits in “Grand Old Town” and the slowly strummed chords in the hypnotizing “Strangers Once” are more album highlights.

If you are into bands like Soundgarden and Stone Temple Pilots there is a good chance you will really dig Mother Bass. They have a refreshing guitar based sound that will have many rock music fans turning their heads. I look forward to hearing where they go next.
