Q&A: Blackwater

Define your genre in five words or less:

Progressive Black Metal.


Bearing the terrible clichéd nature of this question, what do you reckon people will say you sound like?

Soilwork meets Shining.


What do you love about making music?

Music is a language that connects everyone. It moves people. It inspires people. It changes people. It also brings five really good friends together once or twice a week and we never take that for granted.


If you could assassinate one person or band from popular music, who would it and why?

No-one. We are simply musicians. We don’t kill people.


What can a punter expect from your live show?

A show is exactly what we want them to see. We inject as much theatre and dark aura into our stage presence as we can. We want people to feel the dynamics of the extreme power behind our grooves and the sombre melancholy moments of clarity to create their own interpretations behind what they are hearing, developing an eclectic taste for what is Blackwater.

BLACKWATER launch their EP this Saturday August 11 at The Prague.
