Black Water Rising – 2009 debut EP “Black Water Rising”
Some say Black Water Rising is Hard Rock, Metal, Stoner, and Southern Sludge but we’ve set out to create a No Frills, Riff Raging, turbo charged, wall of pure kick ass Power Rock, we believe we have achieved that.
BLACK WATER RISING is a collection of soul baring, angst ridden, riff heavy material that is proudly anchored 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. Basically, NO FRILLS RIFF ROCK! Lyrically the message is socially and politically driven by the dark times we live in. With darkness seemingly growing by the day, BLACK WATER RISING is a name that fits this band like a glove. The philosophy of BWR is simple, they are not looking to reinvent the wheel, and they just want to give it a much needed alignment in these musically stale times.
The songs which we recommend are:
- No Halos
- Brother Go On
- Black Bleeds Through
- The Mirror
Black Water Rising is currently in the studio laying down tracks. The new album seems to be highly anticipated. We can’t wait to hear what new riffs await the anxious audience!
If you would like to check out Black Water Rising for yourselves check out their site and let them know you heard about them through Audiokult Radio. We cannot express how this album is a must have in any collection.
