‘The Real Deal’ really smacks of a southern blues version of old time Whitesnake …..simply glorious and probably my favourite from the whole album.
Funky ‘NYC Freaks’ rides on a groove which conjures images of late night sticky New York City streets and Studio 54. Arthur meanwhile, reveals his talents as a soloist, in the songs closing guitar licks.
Black Tide are back after an extended break (and several personnel changes along the way) with their third full length album, “Chasing Shadows”, which is already dividing opinion amongst their diehard fans. Few bands can boast the attention and praise that Black Tide received at such an early age in their career, resulting in them being rewarded with support slots for major players such as Avenged Sevenfold and Bullet For My Valentine. Their debut album, “Light From Above”, was extremely well received by media and fans alike, as was the follow-up, “Post Mortem”.
