The musical spirit of BACKWATER goes back to the early eighties. Many Metalheads still remember the two longplayers „Revelation“ and „Final Strike“, which where released in 1984 and 1985.
One of the highlights in this period was „Rock The Nation“, a tour together with RESTLESS and GRAVESTONE where BACKWATER left a permanent impression all over Germany.
BACKWATER‘s current magnificant live performance was proven under many well-known metal band‘s at the „Heavy Metal Overkill“ Open-Air-Festival in July 2012.
It was the first show with new song material and line-up, after this very long time of live abstinence. Approx. 500 fans welcomed and celebrated Backwater as if they never left the scene.
The current BACKWATER music can be defined as badass, absorbing, partly melodic metal, which is especially affected by very tight rhythmics. The merciless, wide-ranging vocals and shouts crash against a wall made by guitars, bass and drums.
The members left their footprints at various bands like TAI PAN, X-RAY, FATERED, UNDERTOW, WRONGSIDE, DIZZYRE, UNFROYND and AUDIONAUT.
BACKWATER recorded their new material from Dec. 2012 to May 2013. Drums at Basement-Studio by Daniel Bäuerlein, all other instruments and vocals were recorded, mixed and masterd at Everdark-Studio by Martin Winkler.
The band would like to draw concert artists´ agencies attention to BACKWATER for presenting the new songs on stage.
