    Blackball was a side-project of Precious Death leader Christopher Scott who took his music in a less hardcore and religious direction (though there are hints of Christianity in both albums, most noticeably Hope, which has the Apostle's Creed written right in it) and moved it to a more personal, melodic, and, in the case of Hope, diverse style.

    Anyway the band unfortunately had just two albums, which is kind of sad because with another couple of releases like Super Heavy Dreamscape and Hope they could have easily become my favorite nineties band. They started out with an intense and personal hard rock debut masterpiece, which has long been my favorite album of the nineties before moving into a more of a hard funk direction with Hope. Some of Hope, however, does continue in the Super Heavy Dreamscape style too. I underrated it for a long time because I had a hard time adjusting to the often funkier sound, but since then it has really grown on me the point where I can acknowledge it as one of the best and most diverse albums of the late 90s.

    Blackball consisted of Christopher Scott (guitars, vocals, lead songwriter), Tom Barber (Bass), Lorenzo Mauro (Drums), and David Bishop (some guitars). David was replaced Rocco something or other in 1997. The only music Blackball has delivered since '97 has been a great cover of The Police's "Message in a Bottle" released on a compilation called The Mother Of All Tribute Albums.
