십대의 천재 Gabriel Garcia가 이끄는 Black Tide는 데뷔 앨범 Light From Above을 통해 Heavy Metal팬들로부터 신선한 반응을 이끌어 낼 수 있었다. 이 앨범은 복고풍인 80년대 메탈 사운드를 기반으로하여 만들어졌는데, 이는 밴드에 대한 관심을 크게 환기시켰다. 멤버들 전원이 워낙 어린 나이들인지라, 앞으로 이들의 성장은 여러모로 팬들의 관심사가 될 수밖에 없었다. 하지만, 3년 뒤에 나온 후속작 Post Mortem은 이들에게 기대를 걸었던 팬들을 당혹케 했다. 80년대풍의 직선적인 리프는 이제 Metalcore식의 자로 잰듯한 메트로놈을 연상시켰고, 전작에서 감탄했던 멜로디 라인도 건조해지면서 앨범은 전체적으로 심심해졌다. Light From Above에서 느껴졌던 열기는 순식간에 식어버렸다. 전작을 듣고 이들의 신보가 나오기만 기다렸던 다수의 팬들은 실망감을 감추지 못했다. 무엇이 재기발랄하던 이 밴드를 구태의연한 밴드로 바꿔버린 것일까? 역시 상업적인 성공을 거두지 못한 것이 이들에게 상당한 스트레스를 준 것은 아닌지 모르겠다. 아무래도 현시대에서 메탈 밴드가 상업성을 확보하는 길은 메탈코어말고는 눈에 들어오지 않는다. 그러나 이러한 변화는 헤비 메탈씬을 주도할 위치로 올라설 만한 가능성을 지녔던 이 어린 밴드의 잠재력을 앗 ...

picked this up after seeing half price, I now see why it was.

This is Black Tide's second full length and to be honest, it's not all that good. The main let down, it's no where near as heavy as Light from Above. Some of the introductions to the song sound like they are from a pop group. The vocals are the main difference. They are more matured but even though in Light from Above, they were a little bit screechy, that are not at all good enough. They just don't suit the guitars, they might go well with acoustic but not with heavy and distorted guitars.

When I first started listening to Ashes (featuring Matt Tuck), I thought yeah this is good, but then came the vocals. I mean they were just awful, it's like the song just reaches out to grab you, then it misses you. But the upside is that the drummer has improved a lot.

But then we come to Take It Easy, this song probably has the worst introduction to a metal song in the world. Its has a huge similarity to an introduction that Justin Bieber would have. But as it progresses it gets better, but not much. There are some decent solos, but nothing special.

The band chemistry is going straight down and first thoughts are going to be that they are more of a rock band than metal. I'm seeing them entering Spirit of Rock and leaving spirit of metal very soon. The lyrics in my opinion are very weak. So overall I wouldn't recommend getting the album, listen to an MP3 first before you are certain of getting it.

뭐 그래도 그렇게 평범하게만은 들리지 않다. 1번 트랙은 불렛포 보컬이 피쳐링 해줘서 그런지 느낌이 불렛포 스타일이 녹아낸다. 뭐 어쨋든 메탈코어로 바뀐게 아쉬울 뿐.

Why they changed to metalcore???

엄청좋다..라는 느낌은 크게 들지 않지만 나름 신선하고 무엇보다 음악에서 젊음이 느껴지는 듯해서 좋았다.
