Post Mortem is the sophomore album from the metalcore, Floridian band, Black Tide. This album is far better than their debut album, Light From Above.
It sounds as though they finally found their own sound. Light From
Above sounded like generic classic rock, as though they were trying to
imitate their influence, Metallica.
Post Mortem has a good mix of strong guitar riffs with screaming lyrics, and
slower, softer tracks, like “Take It Easy”, and “Into The Sky”.
My first impression of the album said that the music was great, as were the vocals, but the lyrics needed work. That was because there was lot of times where I couldn’t understand what Gabriel was saying. It generally helps to look up the lyrics, because once you know them, that’s what you hear. Problem was, I couldn’t find the lyrics. So the first impression still stands.
However, I think my favorite track is, “Walking Dead Man”, just because of how it sounds.
I wouldn’t say this is the best album, but its not the worst. I do recommend it, especially over Light from Above.
All reviews have the date they were written, the album title, and the band's name, with the exception of Life Starts Now by Three Days Grace and Dear Agony by Breaking Benjamin. Those dates were guessed at, as they were written well before the website began.
