Ratings and Reviews
The new BWR effort is full of crushing, hard grooving riffs and killer melodic vocals. Slightly reminiscent of Sound Garden, Sabbath, COC and a few other classic hard bands. The songs are well written and played with monster musicianship and attitude. Thought provoking lyrics round out this great CD!
Whoa! In your face hard rock....
This 2nd album blows the 1st right out of the water. Can't wait to see these guys live.\m/
Buy this album. It's great!!!
About Black Water Rising
Think the Brought Low but with radio-friendly songs or the Black Label Society with more of a Southern spin and you're close to the sound of Brooklyn's Black Water Rising. Featuring former Dust to Dust vocalist Rob Traynor, former Stereomud guitarist Johnny Fattoruso, former Boiler Room drummer Mike Meselsohn, and bassist Oddie McLaughlin, the band began gigging around New York City in 2006. By the end of 2007 they had made a video for their track "Brother Go On" and had begun considering offers from a variety of labels. The year 2008 was filled with recording sessions for their debut album. ~ David Jeffries
