There are at least three bands with the same name:

1/ Darkwater are a Swedish power/progressive metal band. Darkwater was formed late 2003 in the western parts of Sweden. During the first years of existence they only did a few selected shows in Sweden while working on the material for their debut album. During summer and fall 2006, Darkwater recorded and mixed the album, and early 2007 a deal was inked with the Swedish label Ulterium Records.

The album was recorded in different studios around in the western parts of Sweden, to reach the highest result possible. The mixing was handled by Peter Seather (A.C.T, Skyfire etc.) at Studio Underground, and the mastering was done by no other than Göran Finnberg (In Flames, The Haunted, Dark Tranquillity etc.) at Mastering Room.

Darkwater have created a melodic metal masterpiece, with the just right amount of progressive metal influences. If you like melodic metal, and progressive metal bands like Symphony X, Dream Theater and Evergrey, you will most definitely highly appreciate Calling The Earth To Witness.

2/ Darkwater are a Scottish female-fronted rock band. Their music is described as "rock with some big riffs, synths and a searing female vocal." The band was formed in Glasgow, Scotland by two professional soundmen, guitarist Doog and bassist Graham, in 2006. They got through three female vocalists within the first year before finally spotting Lora, a model from Newcastle, on the popular British TV show, The X Factor. She made it into the show's "boot camp" but, in her own words, "I wasn't nearly blonde enough" so she was swiftly kicked off the show and welcomed into the band. They have since released several singles, created several videos and supported the likes of Hayseed Dixie and Wolfmother. At the time of writing, they are about to release their debut album.
