“Scarlett Blacke, as is fitting to the gothic rock genre, takes dark and swarthy environs and mixes it with edgy rhythm guitars, a resounding low end and mood filled keyboards. Bobbi, to put it bluntly, brings all the qualities that make a great lead vocalist: grit, emotion, soul, guts and determination- all backed by an abundant range and heartfelt passion. When Scarlett Blacke hits the nail on the head songwriting wise it does not get much better. The album ultimately proves to be a consistent listen. Bobbi’s vocal abilities are incredible. Lyrically, The Rise… proves an inspired work that I draw a great deal of encouragement from. Recommended for fans of any type of gothic influenced music.

“We had the pleasure of catching Scarlett Blacke live three times this past summer and were simply blown away with their professionalism as well as the power and presence they project from the stage. Their shows are nothing short of an experience. They posses the ingredients to turn their Indie dream into an international sensation.
““That doesn’t sound like the praise band,” senior Beth Lee said as she entered the Thomas Road Baptist Church (TRBC) sanctuary for what she thought would be a typical Wednesday night Campus Church service.
Instead of David McKinney and the rest of the praise band, Lee heard Scarlett Blacke, a Christian gothic rock band, or as President of Liberty Theological Seminary Dr. Ergun Caner refers to them, a “gothic metal” band.
The band is comprised of Bobbi and Eddie Folk, Doug Zirk, Tom Meadows and Eric Walter.
Eddie Folk said the band’s history began years ago when the members all played for various secular bands out west. The original band was made up of different members but that group fell apart, paving the way for the group that is currently together.
The band was excited to finally have the opportunity to play at Liberty.
