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”.
All in all, regardless of how stale or vital more straight-ahead progressive metal has been in your mind since the 90’s, AEON ZEN has contributed yet another wonderful album that emphasizes the stylistic strengths of the genre whilst having a few things of its own to say. And bar a complete game-changer like Images & Words from DT or other similarly influential albums that came out from the prog. metal big leagues back in the late 80’s, you can’t ask for much more than that.
