THE BLACKWATER FEVER’s New Album: Temptator!
TEMPTATOR! PRESS RELEASE:
Alt-rockers The Blackwater Fever return with a new full length album: Temptator!
Whether it’s the prog-rock, hypnotic slow burning opus Angler… The poetic, atmospheric imagery of murder ballad’s Ode To Ol’ John Doe and If You Only Knew… the late night rock n’ roll drive of Love Is Strange, or the punk/ grunge molotov cocktail of Everything Always. This is an album packed tight with creative hooks, sharp turns and dynamism. The Blackwater Fever’s 6th studio album, sees the power trio leapfrogging genres with their distinctive sonic aesthetic.
Temptator! Is out now.
“DARK RIVER OF VITRIOLIC ROCK ’N’ ROLL” – Time Off
A thunderous, tortured electric guitar rips through the room. An organ spins a heavy swirl, like some wicked preacher summoning his devilish church. The rhythmic stomp of an unrelenting drum kit rattles you down to the bone marrow, and if you close your eyes… you can almost smell the swamp and feel the moonlight on your face. It’s hard to believe such an atmospheric, blues-heavy storm could come from these 3 unassuming dudes. Breaking your heart one minute with a harrowing growl, only to pick you up with an irresistible rocker the next, this Brisbane based blues-rock trio are a live experience not to be missed.
