We think that "The Water" EP by Death Motif is AMAZING!!!

Fast paced riffs with blast beats and awesome vocals keeps you interested from start to end.

Death Motif have done such a good job on this EP that we will be buying it to blast when the BBQ is on.

After listening to the first two songs i can pick out a few different influences in their music, to me it sounds like a mixture of hardcore metal meets black metal! ... Done well

Personally the title track "The Water" is my favorite song of the EP.

Blasting it full volume the studio was shaking..

Its a shame the band are from Texas as we would love to see these guys live... but with the songs that they have already put out we cant see it being long until these guys catch a break and get picked up by a big label.

We highly recommend that you listen / buy "The Water" EP .

Keep a eye out on these lads.. its only a matter of time...
