Lullwater make it impossible to pin them down to one music
category, traversing smoothly from the thundering guitar rock fumes
of "A Forgotten Name" to the rambling country rock chugging
of "Whatever Happened" and then sliding into the roving
melodic swells of "Low," all from the band's latest release
Forest For The Trees. They wield aspects of Breaking Benjamin,
Lucero and The Goo Goo Dolls all wrapped up into one.
Produced by Asa Leffer of Downtown Athens Recording Company,
the 5-track EP shows a hardcore liking for brazen rock, and a melodic
timing with mass appeal.
The racing guitar shreds sowed by John and Brett Strickland
on "One More Time" are scorching as John's flesh-toned vocals
howl and slice through the verses accelerating the momentum of bassist
Carter Jones and drummer Nick Thomas along the chorus.
It has the electric smolder associated with the tenderizing crunches
of metal rockers like Tantric and Days Of The New garnished
in Lullwater's own flameworthy snarls, jabs and power chord riffage.
They put muscle into rock music's conflagrations like in the defining
spiral sequences that ream along "Alive" reinforced by the
fierce gusto of Jones' and Thomas' rhythmic beating.
Lullwater's music speaks for itself. They know their way around
belting out a genuine country flange just as assuredly as they can
axle blazing guitar shreds on memorable licks like in "Low."
Their songs focus on the here and now, and cut through any pretenses
and facades that camouflage honest, raw emotions. They are a dream
team for modern rock fans.
