"First of all, I have to say that the band’s name totally betrays their high-octane hard rock. You see, “ditchwater” is used to describe stagnant, dirty water...and there’s absolutely nothing stagnant about this fivesome from Chicago."
“Never Say Never” is a slick sounding record, there’s a very strong focus on the melodic rock side of things here that’s modern but retaining the roots of heavy based hard rock".
"Combining a heavy groove within their rock and metal roots, the new album from American metallers Ditchwater is one helluva catchy and infectious listen".
"Chicago based quintet DITCHWATER, because these veterans are hard to break and to be tamed by difficulties. Their latest album, “Never Say Never”, is fine piece of Metal.
"DITCHWATER has kept consistent in their making of heavy, powerful, catchy and above all honest music". Subterranean Noise
"A thoroughly honest and fat rocking version in the triangle of metal, hard rock and rock 'n' roll and also likes to look a little bit into the modern age with one eye".
"Whilst Ditchwater are definitely at the heavier end of the musical scale, what they have created on the new album has expanded, if not tamed, their brand of metal to make it accessible to a wider audience. All power to these guys!".
