Tales of addiction and despair Cover Art

Blood Red Water is a Sludge Metal Band from Venezia/Padova, Italy

The members are

Michele: chronic amphetamine vocals
Fiorica: rheumatic alcoholic cymbals
Volt: feedback junkie
Dodi: the hand of doom

Blood Red Water play good old-fashioned straight up Sludge Metal with a couple of influences of Stoner Metal for great effect.

The band has just released their superb debut EP – “ Tales of Addiction and Despair”. A 5 song 23 minute ride of heavy pummelling riffs from start to finish and great hardcore vocals to match.

If you just want a fast thrill to the senses delivered by some top-notch Sludge Metal then Blood Red Water is the band for you.

I can hear influences of many great bands to Blood Red Water’s music. EHG, Crowbar and even Motorhead at times. Especially on superb track “Avoid The Relapse”. A great 3 minute stomping Sludge/Stoner Metal track that will have you head-banging in no time.

This EP is superbly produced with a slight DIY feel to it that really draws you in from the start to the final hard-hitting moments of this great release.

So do yourself a favour go over to the band’s BandCamp page and download (for free) this heavy-loud-angry Riffing Blast of top-notch Sludge/Stoner Metal.

Great Stuff and Highly Recommended.
