Black Tide come out of the gate with all guns blazing. Their Interscope Records debut, Light from Above, is a loaded salvo of fret-burning, hyper-charged riffs. The Florida quartet churns out fist-pumping, fast-paced metallic anthems with no remorse. Their sound channels ... Read more in Amazon's Black Tide Store

Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Miami Metal quartet. On Post Mortem, the band has developed and deepened its sound, creating a collection of dangerously hypnotic hard rock. The new material showcases the band's creative expansion, and the members of Black Tide collectively worked on writing the album together over the past two years, honing their skills. First single, "That Fire" burns with an acoustic intro and a syncopated polythythmic groove while "Bury Me" breaks down with a mathematical madness as hard-hitting riffs crisscross and careen violently. Then there's "Ashes," which packs a pummeling punch, and "Walking Dead Man," a barn-burner of a track that Steven actually wrote on guitar.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointment... September 6, 2011
By doubleB
Format:Audio CD
I thoroughly enjoyed Light From Above because of the 80's influences. I had hoped they would refine the sound but still retain those same influences but in my opinion they went in the wrong direction. Probably some producer trying to make them sound on what's selling now,... and that's exactly what they got... a collection of songs that sounds generic enough to pass for what's being produced today.

3.0 out of 5 stars It was fun while it lasted September 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
One of the most exciting debuts of 2008 was Black Tide's Light From Above. The young band - they were all teenagers at the time - emerged with a wild and energetic sound that put a modern spin on the classic Iron Maiden and Metallica-based style of metal. For those of us dejected by the state of modern hard rock, this was a breath of fresh air, and it made their follow-up one of this year's most anticipated releases.

Unfortunately the Black Tide we heard on Light From Above is nowhere to be found on Post Mortem. Gone is the brash young band that sounded like they just discovered their dads' vinyl collection. In its place is a band that, while more technically proficient, sounds like they just discovered what it takes to get played at Hot Topic. It's still very melodic, and still packs a metallic punch, but with all the emo/scream/whatever-core elements Post Mortem is virtually indistinguishable from every other band that sounds like Bullet for My Valentine.

It's not hard to understand why the band moved in this direction. From a commercial perspective it makes perfect sense. This kind of trendy rock will always outsell the `80s throwback metal of their debut. Still, it seems like wasted potential to see a band this good try so hard to sound like everyone else.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bullet for My Black Tide August 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD
What I loved about Black Tide on Light From Above was their throw back to the 80's style metal. I wasn't surprised when the first song had a Bullet for My Valentine feel since their singer was featured on the opening track. The change in their sound didn't stop there most of the rest of the album has that same feel. I really like Bullet for My Valentine but didn't really need another band sounding so much like them.

That said the album is slowly growing on me but I still miss the old sound...

5.0 out of 5 stars great second album June 26, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although this doesn't have the classic rock sound of the first album, it is obvious the band has improved a great deal. This is a great album for anyone who likes rock or pop/rock music with more meaning in the lyrics. The singer's voice has also improved since the first album. This is a very understated album as well as a very understated and overlooked band.

1.0 out of 5 stars Black Tide Treads in the Waters of Failure January 31, 2012
Format:MP3 Music
When I first heard this band with their premiere album "Light From Above", I knew I had discovered something I thought would never surface again - an amazing NEW metal band! They performed a great tribute to the forefathers of 80's thrash metal whilst bringing something new to the table with 21st century production values and a solid album, through and through. I was hooked. So when I saw that they had a new album out, it was a no-brainer! I downloaded the song straight to my iPhone at a friends house with giddy anticipation. WOW was I disappointed. I haven't been this sad about the heavy metal scene since Dimebag Darrel was shot. It's a freakin' tragedy!!!

Fast-paced and in-your-face songs like "Live Fast Die Young" and "Warriors of Time" have now been replaced by the ill-conceived tripe that is "Ashes" and "Take It Slow". Take it slow? I'm sure that's exactly what the band told the producers when they had them bent over for this massacre. Did they sell out? Turn to religion? Perhaps they just stopped drinking. But whatever the case, they definitely owe me $10 and an hour of my time back.

If you have any appreciation for music, do not buy this album.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you loved light from above.... Don't buy this. August 23, 2011
Format:Audio CD
I'm writing this to hopefully prevent what happened to me from happening to anyone else. I bought this album because I loved Light From Above (1st album). This album is not like LFA at all. Instead of having a lot of the old thrash and metal sound, they've changed it up to sound like emo pop metal. When I first heard it, I thought I got the wrong artist, but no, it is them. If you like pop emo type metal rock, then feel free to give this a shot. Anyone who thought we might hear some more amazing old school metal sound from these guys.... You won't. Don't waste your money. I wasted my money and now I need to stop wasting time on this review and sell this waste of cash b4 the record stores close. Sorry to see this band waste their talent like this. RIP. Looks like it's all up to Holy Grail and White Wizzard now.

1.0 out of 5 stars AMAZING...and not in a good way! October 18, 2011
Format:Audio CD
With the release of "Light From Above," Black Tide established themselves as a new and upcoming force in the ways of good, hard-rocking, guitar-driven, metal...a la 80's-style. It was clear that with a few more releases in the same vein, they would be headliners in venues occupied by the Metallicas and the Megadeths of the world.

But something happened, something sinister. Some mainstream, money-hungry record company executive or producer got a hold of these young guys and manipulated their youthful and obviously easily-influenced minds into thinking that bubblegum music is the way to go if they want to make it to the next level. This album is a travesty to all that is rock and all that is metal. Here are some comparisons of other bands who fell from grace to the extent that Black Tide did with this release.
