The bloodline of 1308EW83 started pulsing in Rīga, Latvia with the fadeout of alternative rock band Mary Jane, when 2 of its musicians split in 1998 and founded Rosewater - initially an outfit, which gradually transcended live drums, clean vocals and traditional guitars by way of joining the Latvian industrial action Sturm, of which they are by far the best-known act. After some unofficial demos (e.g. No End 1999), in the end of 2000 they put forth their first full-wrought effort - Kursk (Sturmmandat 3), full of perfected and abrasive / dance floor hits. In 2004 Motor Medicine (Sturmmandat 12/Nagual 22) was released - a collection of recordings from years 2001-2003, which sees the band excersising a sort of -approach in their impeccable industry. 2006 and it’s time for Bloodcount (Sturmmandat 20) - a massive grinding tour de force, certainly the slowest and least easy-listenable album by RWR so far.
