Floodgate - Penalty (CD)
Release Date: 11/20/07
Southern Stoner Rock from members of Exhorder, Down, COC and Superjoint Ritual.
Floodgate emerged in the mid 90's, when the music scene was preparing itself for the upcoming wave of nu-metal. The New Orleans-based quartet, however, offered a completely different musical stylistics. 'Penalty', the band's first and so far only LP delivers an hour of prime doom-sludge stoner rock, comparable to the best releases by Trouble, Down or Monster Magnet. The album featured 11 brilliant tracks, inspired by the Deep South traditions of stoner rock, straight out of the slimy, 'gator-infested swamps of the Bayou. Digipack edition of 2000 numbered copies.
