Black Tide This Weekend!

blacktideband.jpgIt's finally concert season, and I have a big weekend ahead of me because I'll be at Rock on the Range. The two-day festival takes place in Columbus, Ohio and features modern Metal bands (Papa Roach, Kid Rock, Stone Temple Pilots, Finger get the idea). There's a lot of stuff on the bill I don't care about seeing, but one band in particular has my attention: Black Tide. A heavy Metal band of mere children, Black Tide formed around 2004 in Miami, Florida.

These guys are a mix of Iron Maiden, Metallica and a touch of Motley Crue. In short, they rule. Their debut album Light From Above kills. Hell, even a hipster magazine like Rolling Stone ran a whole page article on them - I think that's good for Metal. Perhaps not in the sense that Black Tide are a chosen band and therefore accepted - more so that Metal is really making a strong return in popularity.

So, on Sunday I'll be perched at the barrier ready to rock with some teenagers. Well, at least the ones on the stage.

Here's the track listing for Light From Above:

Warriors Of Time
Give Me A Chance
Let Me
Show Me The Way
Live Fast Die Young
Hit The Lights
Black Abyss
Light From Above


Listen to the album's title track:

I'll be at Rock on the Range on Sunday!!! Maybe I'll see you there!!! So don't be scared if a half Japanese girl approaches's just me wanting to say hi. :) There aren't too many bands I want to check out, but now I'll be sure to catch Black Tide since you recommend them. Make sure to bring an umbrella. The weather is supposed to be crappy. Boooooo!

Their are several bands that I would recommend checking out during this two day show.

Don't miss Airbourne! They put an awesome live show!

I haven't seen Black Tide (yet) but their new CD is pretty good.

I saw Alter Bridge a few months ago, and these guys are phenomenal live. Myles Kennedy is one hell of a singer.

Yeah Rob, I've been telling her the odds of her leaving with an Airbourne CD are zero. Their live show is incredible.
