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 .

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.

Eric Kruse This hits all of my sweet spots. It's bluesy. It's heavy. It's got killer musicianship and vocals. Who could ask for more? Favorite track: Witch of the Future.

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!

Track Name: Radiation
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.
Track Name: Witch of the Future
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
Track Name: Torches
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.
Track Name: Blood on the Blade
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.
Track Name: Hash King
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.
Track Name: End of Man
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.
