REVIEW: Lullwater's "Voodoo" Will Compel You to Rock
Voodoo is Lullwater’s follow up to their 2012 self-titled album and upon pressing play, there is no doubt about it being a solid album. However, twenty seconds into the first track “Curtain Call,” it is clearly evident that this album is bound to take listeners upon a ride. Distorted guitars start off the song before being met by captivating drums that will leave you spellbound. This must explain the album title, right? “Curtain Call” then picks up with a heavy metal sound with an edge of progressive metal.
After the adrenaline rush of the first track, one cannot help but wonder with what will follow it up. “Dark Divided” is the second song and delivers more of a melodic hard rock sound. Fans of 90’s rock will certainly dig this track which seems to have influences stemming from Foo Fighters and Pearl Jam.
“Empty Chamber” is the third track and the lead single off of Voodoo. Though the song has an upbeat tempo, the lyrics discuss emotional pain.
Another stand out track is “Into the Sun.” A fusion of grunge and hard rock, this song will have you nodding along. Midway through, an epic guitar solo livens things up even more. Lead vocalist John Strickland proves that Lullwater is filling a void in rock music with his powerful vocals.
Voodoo certainly does not lack in energy and will compel you to rock. If listeners should be warned of anything before listening to the album, it is to expect constant headbanging.
