BLACK TIDE: Video Footage From The Studio Posted Online

June 25, 2010

Miami, Florida's BLACK TIDE made an impact on the music scene in 2008 with its Interscope Records debut, "Light From Above". Now the Florida-based quartet is at Spin Studios in New York recording the follow-up effort with producers Garth "GGGarth" Richardson (RAGE AGAINST THE MACHINE, MUDVAYNE) and Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, AVENGED SEVENFOLD). The as-yet-untitled CD will be released in the fall.

The first in a series of video clips documenting the recording process for the new album can be viewed below.

In a recent interview with Mega Metal Magazine, BLACK TIDE bassist Zakk Sandler stated about the group's new material, "I think it's got a bunch of elements from the last record. I think it's obvious that we've grown as players, and as writers, in pretty much every way we can. There's definitely a different sense of direction with this. In some way's it's a lot heavier, and at the same time it's a lot more melodic, and prettier. . . There is A LOT of guitar work. Especially from what we thought it was going to sound like, it's a lot riffier, and a lot more diverse. In a weird way, I think it's more — kind of like our last album. More of an '80s rock vibe and elements of a early '90s rock vibe. It's all over the place."
