Album Review

Blackwater Holylight – “Silence/Motion” – [RidingEasy Records]

humana   1/24/2022   A Library, CD

The tracks on this one progress from a “blackwater” feel with the black metal-ish lyrics of “Delusional” to a “holylight” at the end of a tunnel by the time you reach the more inviting vocalizations of “Around You.” The words are dark and depressing, and the four band members from Portland, Oregon certainly create an atmosphere worthy of their name. The rhythms and vocals arise from the murk of the guitars to create a mood worthy of the time we live in–black at times tinged with light.

Blackwater Holylight, yeah!!!!
I saw them at The Belly Up Tavern in Solona Beach/San Diego this last January, 2022, and they were amazing. I got pretty much blown away by them, these girls definitely got their s**t together. They opened and supported All Them Witches.
Highly recommend.
