Portrait of HOLY WATER

HOLY WATER


About HOLY WATER

Brooklyn, NY

"Holy Water is one of those bands that will make you scratch your head and think ‘how were they not huge?’” says Derric Miller at www.hardrockhaven.net. Members and sidemen of Doro Pesch, Quiet Riot, Widowmaker, Saraya, Prong and Foreigner banded together under the moniker HOLY WATER in the late '80's to create music with all the promise of a true rock and roll classic: Hooks and melodies galore, monster guitar riffs, a bone crushing rhythm section and just enough keyboards and harmony vocals to bridge the gap between '80's pomp and '90's power. In 1992, HOLY WATER included David Knight (vocals), Thomas Jude (guitar), Freddy Villano (bass) and Chuck Bonfante (drums) with former Foreigner member Al Greenwood producing and playing keyboards.

Recently remastered by Patrick Klein (The Lizards) and packaged by Cosmocto, THE COLLECTED SESSIONS is a never-before-released CD chronicling HOLY WATER's mercurial career. The nine-song disc opens with The Green Machine Sessions, a stellar, three-song set featuring the brilliantly crafted AOR-ready single "I'm Not Worried Anymore." Produced in the early Nineties by Al Greenwood, these three songs have been ranked among the classics of melodic rock by industry insiders. Here’s what people are already saying about HOLY WATER and THE COLLECTED SESSIONS:

"The song that easily could have catapulted them into Top 10 status is "'I’m Not Worried Anymore.'” Derric Miller @ hardrockhaven.net

"Damn near every song here could've fit on the radio..."
Tim Wadzinski @ Detritus e-zine

"…the sublime 'I’m Not Worried Anymore' should have made them huge."
Dave Ling @ Classic Rock Magazine

"A slice of radio-friendly rock, it is somewhat remiss that the opener 'I'm Not Worried Anymore' has so far escaped wider attention." David Randall @ getreadytorock.com

"…the band should have been household names. At their best Holy Water is THAT good." Skid @ sleazeroxx.com

THE COLLECTED SESSIONS also features demos from the Studio 1212 Sessions, The Grand Slam Sessions and The Mask Sessions as well as two newly recorded songs, dubbed The Perris Sessions. Joining Knight, Jude and Villano on these latter tracks are drummer Bobby Marks and keyboardist Jay Davidson.

Listening to HOLY WATER’s music one can hear a maturity evidenced only in the truly great artisans of rock.
