Austin Diaz - Guitar For Black Tide, evolution is a big part of growing up. On Post Mortem, the band's second album for DGC/Interscope, the Miami quartet has developed and deepened its sound, creating a collection of dangerously hypnotic hard rock. Black Tide began a non-stop roller-coaster of touring when its debut Light From Above dropped in 2008, and time on the road certainly fostered growth on album #2. During that whirlwind of shows, the band participated in the first ever Rockstar Mayhem Festival alongside Slipknot and Disturbed in 2008, toured the U.S. with Avenged Sevenfold (who they'll be out with again on the 2011 Rockstar Uproar Festival), played the main stage at Ozzfest 2008, and lit up the stage on Warped Tour 2009. 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. "Let It Out" resounds with that powerful punk spirit prevalent since day 1 for Black Tide.
