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.
That said the album is slowly growing on me but I still miss the old sound...
Fast-paced and in-your-face songs like "Live Fast Die Young" and "Warriors of Time" have now been replaced by the ill-conceived tripe that is "Ashes" and "Take It Slow".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.

Was really looking forward to this album but was let-down by an almost complete change in sound. The sound on "Light From Above" was so refreshing. Read morePublished on July 18, 2012 by Patrick K. Fines
