Jonathan Harris Definitely can't complain about any of it and hard choosing one song anyways , I've worn the digital versions out so I can't wait till the physical copy comes in !!! Y'all ever get a chance to head down to New Orleans to do or want to do a show sometime , let me know .

Mike Dewald Selected Hash King as a my favorite but i could have chosen any of them. I am always searching for very hard bluesy bands for our show. You guys are perfect. Love this whole album. Favorite track: Hash King.

Lute FP As Mr Rote is fond of saying, this is killer FFOBR. I held off buying it cuz I wasn’t sure if it stood out from all the other stuff out there, but after my three free spins were up I had to buy.

Lots of changeups, and a killer guitar tone. If you like the style you will love this.

Radiation 07:35
Something's been growing inside of me The world is just too blind to see There's no more room for us to grow And even less who seem to know Radiation in our hands We give the power to the Man He'll destroy our inner peace And wash away all our beliefs Power in our hands, but we give it away.
3.
It's mystical indeed It's not wicked witchery Lady of divination Drawing forth inspiration Light a candle and pray Keep dark spirits at bay And stay here close to her My witch of the future Glowing richness and decadence Cause of splendor and awe Those who seek are in danger All who rise will surely fall Keep on searching for answers Always gazing toward the moon What's to come will be revealed But it always ends too soon Tell me my fortune Witch of the Future Can I be good? Will I be saved? Foretell my fortune Witch of the Future Will I rise up? Or fall down in this grave? Proceed with caution now Heed the warnings, she is wise Truth lies in front of you But it wears a dark disguise Nothing bad can happen As she holds your hands so tight The mystical journey unfolds Now transcend into the light Tell me my fortune Witch of the Future Can I be good? Will I be saved? Foretell my fortune Witch of the Future Will I rise up? Or fall down in this grave? Capture the poison Witch of the Future Give me one drop to Save me from harm My head is spinning Witch of the Future I'm here with you now No cause for alarm The oracle can see What is meant to be The truth she beholds A burden on her soul But a prophet won't save me Won't save me from fate Or we die together My witch of the future

Torches 05:02
People grab your torches They will light the way We will hunt the witches Til the dawn of day We must grab the torches Witches must be slain Meet us in the forest Sins of the arcane The witches must be slain. And in the night, flames burn so bright. The witches must be slain.

Not much he can say There's blood on the blade He can wash it away But the deed will remain His instincts were wrong And he knew all along There's blood on the blade Now there's blood on the blade What more can he say? Now there's blood on the blade Whose life did he take? Has he made a mistake? His instincts were wrong And he knew all along, yes he did. There's blood on the blade, Now there's blood on the blade. Now he needs to escape, yes he does... When there's blood on the blade.

Hash King 07:15
He is the Hash King And he reigns supreme For all the dope fiends He's got just the thing He is the Hash King And these are the facts He is the Hash King Full-melt, solventless wax Bubble Hash, bubble hash! Solventless wax. Hash King. And when you need a fix He takes care of it And when it's late at night He makes you feel alright And now your eyes hang low Your brain is moving slow And you just gotta thank The Hash King for that dank You know who to thank, for that dank You know who you should thank, the Hash King My eyes are low, I'm moving slow. He is the Hash King And he reigns supreme For all the dope fiends He's got just the thing He is the Hash King And these are the facts He is the Hash King Full-melt, solventless wax Bubble Hash, bubble hash! Solventless wax. Hash King.

End of Man 05:08
I awoke to a sound that night The scratching on the windowpane The sky was dark and menacing Without even a hint of rain It beckoned me out of my warm bed And into the cold, dark street I closed my eyes and suddenly Lost the ground beneath my feet I floated there, confused an unaware A figure had appeared, it could sense my fear He was so glorious and divine Too wondrous to behold But he was evil and malicious The epitome of cold The things he whispered in my ear Made me shed a tear Fantasies of bloodshed and dismay The end would come someday I floated there, confused and unaware A figure had appeared, it could sense my fear I was so afraid. Just take me to my grave. Just take me by the hand. Lead us to the End of Man.

about

ABOUT THIS ALBUM:

Black Road began its journey in 2015 with an uncertain identity. Trying to nail down solid band members and find common ground took some time. Upon the arrival of Halloween 2016, the band had formed the lineup that remains today. On the 3 year anniversary of this lineup coming together, they release their debut full-length "Witch of the Future" on Halloween 2019.

Following a successful debut EP, fun music videos, and a few single releases, there was a lot of excitement to get this album out to the world. A lucky 50 folks ended up with the limited edition 7" clear vinyl through DHU RECORDS! That track "Blood on the Blade" is included on the LP as well. The songs included are all completely written by the current members, as opposed to the EP which contained songs once written and performed by past band members.

Tim M. lead the songs as usual with his soaring riffs. Melodic and harmonic, they set the tone for the vocals. All lyrics and vocals are done by Suzi Uzi, with Tim doing backing vocals on a few tracks. There is synth and tambourine sprinkled throughout, but not overdone. Robert Gonzales took charge of the recording sessions! He absolutely nailed his drum takes during the live recordings, while Casey Papp complimented his every beat with some killer, amazing bass.

After having super solid takes, vocals and guitar solos were added, as well as percussion and synth, to round out the sound. The ambience of the studio and the relaxed nature of the entire process comes out in the album. The single 'Witch of the Future" was first released as a live track in 2017, then again in 2018 as a standalone digital single. It was completely redone in the studio and is released as the title track for this album.

Black Road thanks EACH AND EVERY PERSON who has followed along the this dark and winding path! We wouldn't be here without you!
