The most frequent and relevant reference points I can find for the music on this self titled CD is Black Sabbath, Trouble, Alabama Thunderpussy, Dixie Witch,…. Although this 9-track is not in the same league in terms of quality, their mixing of rich power chords, steady drumming and okay, but not great vocals is coming along real well. An appealing cd , sure, but nothing groundbreaking. The song writing is played on the safe side and every song is much like many others you have heard before. Daring, Blackwater is not. But they do provide a decent scattering of material for an album that has a pleasant run. Not a memorable listen, but enjoyable. Not a single song will blow your mind yet its not bad enough to send you scrambling for the off button....
