Black Water RisingBLACK WATER RISING unleash a slab of soul baring, angst ridden, riff heavy material that is proudly powered in the foundations of traditional Hard Rock song writing. Giant guitar driven monster riffs served up on a bed of crushing grooves with soaring melodic vocals and big hooks. If this sounds like your cup of tea, bottoms up and drink up! From beginning to end, this album is chock full of some of the nastiest rhythm grooves you will ever hear. Pure speaker candy with motor-like riffage. The sound quality is very upfront, and will punish your speakers. The vocals are fantastic. Take one part Black Sabbath, one part Black Label Society, add a dash of Monster Magnet and dash of COC for attitude. As is evident of tracks like, “Brother Go On’, “Black Bleeds Through” and “Living Proof”. The production is very clean and tight but could still blow up the finest stereo system. In short, if you dig classic style, hard rocking, driving fast, rock and roll then Black Water Rising is just what the doctor ordered. This band proves that there is still creativity to be found in today’s rock music scene. Strongly recommended to fans of the Hard, Groovy, Southern Rock styles.
