While worshipping the doom/sludge high lords of the 70’s, The Black Swamp take that Sabbath base and infuse some modern Baroness and Mastodon like melody.

Throwing out grooves made for nodding heads and emptying beers.Beginning as a live act in 2012, the Swamp have slimed out an LP, an EP, and a handful of un-official releases on their way to support slots with Hellyeah, Black Label Society and Sebastian Bach, as well as peddling their music around the country on their own national tours.The Black Swamp set out to inspire their fans to have a beer drenched, blazing good time.

Their lyrical content and artwork tackle themes and imagery of space, earth, reflection and… a bloody good time! If the power of the riff compels you, then The Black Swamp probably will too. No reinventing the wheel here, thy riffs runneth over.

The band are set to hit the road for two exclusive shows in December before preparing for the new release of Witches next year. Stay tuned to Metal Obsession for further details on the Witches EP release and tour dates.
