”Endless War” is the third single from BLACK SWAMP WATER’s upcoming third album “Awakening”, which will be released on Mighty Music in August. “Endless War” is hard, brutal and thrashy – all classic metal traits that the dystopic horror universe of the music video supports to the full extent.
New music genres are created for marketing purposes. When you define a style with a pompous name, you create an “audience” which a band can apply to when claiming that musical genre. However, the audience eventually realizes the gimmick and gets fed up with all the bands playing the same music with the lack of soul and lack of authenticity. This is where Black Swamp Water from Denmark gets in. Their musical approach may be simple to read, but the old-school hard rock and heavy metal blend they make, with obvious references to bands such as Black Sabbath, Corrosion of Conformity, and Ozzy, grabs you by the balls and won’t let you go that easily.
This is particularly true in “Awakening”, the third Black Swamp Water album, which will be out in the summer via Mighty Music. With a gritty and clear production and mixing, courtesy of Tue Madsen and his Antfarm Studios (Moonspell, Artillery, Dark Tranquillity), the nine tracks range from Southern heavy rock to thrash heaviness within the blink of an eye without dropping a gram of musical personality. The two singles released so far, “Showdown” and “Better Days”, available on all streaming platforms, showcase all the wild range of “Awakening” and how much Black Swamp Water has grown as songwriters in the last three years.
