Two years after their first release, Watertank are back with “Destination Unknown”, a 9 song full length (a little less than 35 minutes), composed and recorded on a unusual short notice, revealing a more confident band through strongly crafted songs.
The Nantes, France based band is still in love with melodic hooks, and downtuned heavy riffing (“Dcvr”, “Doomed Drifters”), evolving from their post-hardcore background (“Contrails”) toexplore new territories (“Scheme”, “Destination Unknown”), they aim to deliver a lasting listening enjoyment.
Once again recorded by Patrice Guillerme (Papier Tigre, Patriotic Sunday) and mastered by Carl Saff (Coliseum, Pilot To Gunner), “Destination Unknown” marks a step forwards for the renewed lineup (who took part of last year Hellfest edition), gearing up for a few dates with Torche in 2015.
If youre into Torche, Quicksand and Failure, Watertank will be for you.
