Black Water Chemistry – Oracles

Rising South Wales metallers BLACK WATER CHEMISTRY keep on climbing and
climbing. The UK riff beasts are set to launch out of the underground with
their blistering new EP, Return To Ashes, which arrives on Friday 31st
August. Before then, the band have released a new video, Oracles, which can
be streamed

Coming at you from Newport, BLACK WATER CHEMISTRY were formed in 2014 by
blood brothers Matt Saunders and Chris Saunders, respectively handling lead
vocals and lead guitars, aided and abetted by long-time friends Gizz on
bass, Murph taking care of the rhythm guitar, and Dan behind the kit. The
formidable fivesome have spent the last eighteen months working tirelessly
to cement their style and increase their fanbase and the band are now
beginning to bear the fruits of their labour.

BLACK WATER CHEMISTRY have already been compared to such grunge pioneers as
Soundgarden, to metal heavyweights such as Mastodon and Parkway Drive. The
culmination of these sounds has allowed the quintet to utilise a blend of
older disciplines, fused with more modern metal techniques and musings, to
form an energetic yet aggressive style that provides something for
everyone’s tastes.

The band have pulled out all the stops in crafting their new EP, Return To
Ashes, and in doing so, the Welsh riff maestros have truly created something
special, from the blistering and engulfing beatings of their current single,
Oracles, through to the cinematic vibe and explosive vigour of the EP’s
namesake, Return To Ashes. Producing such a statement of intent takes its
time; lead guitarist and producer, Chris Saunders, comments about the new
EP: “Our music has progressed a lot within the last couple of years and we
needed to update the way we recorded it. This time we had more of a DIY
approach than our first effort. Periphery was the biggest influence on the
way we approached the production, musically they’re one of my favourite
bands, and their production is killer.”
