Taken from their November 3rd, 2017, Pavement Entertainment release, Electrified, Brooklyn, NY’s Black Water Rising are today dropping a dope video for their killer tune “World Of Frustration”. Consisting of singer and guitarist Rob Traynor, drummer Mike Meselsohn, bassist Oddie Mclaughlin, and guitarist Dennis Kimak, BWR packs a powerful and positive message over top of wallopping walls of hard rock thunder and have been steadily climbing the proverbial ladder since the release of their 2010 debut.

Unlike the majority of their heavy, guitar-driven tunes, “World Of Frustration” is an acoustic-based number which “covers an array of global issues facing society today including war, climate change and poverty.” Speaking of the video itself, drummer Mike Meselsohn had this to say:

“Once again we have teamed up with director Noah Shulman who has created another amazing work of art that is beautifully filmed and offers an important global message of hope. Our goal with this video is to leave the viewer with an eye opening call to action and show the world that we as humans have accomplished so much but still have so far to go…and that starts with compassion.”

Black Water Rising “Payback” their fans with yet another killer tune and video!
