iTunes Review

Black Tide makes no apologies about worshipping at the altar of Metallica. Their 2008 debut Light from Above even boasted an impressive cover of “Hit The Lights.” The Miami quartet’s sophomore long-player is a bit of a departure in style. Where their first album resonated with a deep love for Metallica’s ‘80s thrash-metal, Post Mortem echoes Metallica’s move into ‘90s stadium-friendly hard rock. “Ashes” opens blending post-grunge songcraft with NWOBHM-flavored guitar solos while rapid-fire rhythms recall the fury of their first album. The singing is especially strong here as it features guest vocals by Matthew Tuck of Bullet for My Valentine. The following “Bury Me” delivers an insta-hit with a noticeable change from speed-metal to melodic metalcore's trappings. “That Fire” is another infectious standout that shines a spotlight on Black Tide’s stellar musicianship — check out Gabriel Garcia and Austin Diaz’s amazing guitar interplay here. Unbinding themselves from Metallica’s spell, “Walking Dead Man” displays a promising direction in accessible metalcore.

Customer Reviews

Not nearly as good as LFA

Their first album, Light From Above, was amazing, thrashy and pleasantly modern. This album however... Not so much. They've gone mainstream and their lyrics, while more serious than those from their previous album, lack in being anything special. If you like generic bands like Escape the Fate or the Devil Wears Prada, or even Disturbed, you're sure to like this album.
If you're more of a Metallica, Megadeth, Pantera fan then don't get this monotonous CD. This band started out thrash, but now they're nothing more than boring, radio friendly metal. They can shred, but so can people living in their parent's basements. This band has sold out.

As mere teenagers ranging in age from 14 to 19 years old, Black Tide (formerly called Radio) share a surprising affinity for metal bands that hit their career peaks and vanished behind the curtain of grunge well before any members of the group were born. Citing guitar virtuosos Yngwie Malmsteen, Paul Gilbert, and Steve Vai as influences, as well as the more traditionally referenced metal trendsetters like Metallica and Slayer, the boys make heavy-hitting speed metal that would sit right at home in...
