Black Swamp Water
Chapter One
Company: Mighty Music
Release: 2016
Genre: Hard Rock
Reviewer: Eric Compton
Published: 1/20/2017

Explosive new hard rock out of Denmark
COMMENTS:
Three positives here right off the bat. First, Tue Madsen (Mnemic, Raunchy) production job. Second, the band has enough confidence to name their album 'Chapter One' knowing it will be successful enough to warrant a second chapter. Third, shit...they are damn good. Think of Accept crossed with a really cool 70's or 80's southern rock band --you name one. Like the album name there is a Southern groove to the whole thing. Mid-tempo grooves soak up blistering cuts like "Harmless" and "Life is Pain" while hard rock tenacity embraces the smooth "Into the Fire". A band to watch!
RECOMMENDED FOR FANS OF:
Anti-Mortem, Black Label Society, Down, The Showdown
