Ditchwater - Breakdown (Independent) - Back
Hailing from the south side of Chicago, Ditchwater has taken their various influences and put them together to create their latest CD entitled "Breakdown." This CD is full of energy and emotion. Ditchwater takes heavy catchy riffs with screaming and melodic undertones with clean vocals, that sound a little like Life of Agony, together in such a way to create a CD of chaos and contempt, that it can even get the lazy people out of their chairs, and to get up and to create a mosh pit of their own. These guys are basically taking the latest metal/hardcore craze of music to their own benefit and they don't do a bad job at it. The six songs that last nearly twenty-three minutes, start of with a song called "10 To 12, Soul To Cell." This song will get you up and ready to bash heads with your friends. It is definitely my favorite song on this CD. Right after that song, "I.D.G.A.F." continues on with this frenzy. The last 4 songs are decent, but those first 2 are killers. If you enjoy listening to hardcore or straight ahead metal, I'd say check these guys out. You probably will enjoy this CD as much as I did.
