Have you ever wondered what 70´s rock band would sound like today? Norwegian rock mongers SOULS OF TIDE, releasing their new album “Black Magic” today, show you.
Souls of Tide is somewhat strangely assembled as the background of these six experienced musicians grew from both rock and metal. The members are known from bands like Trollfest, Madder Mortem, Wyruz, Sarkom, Porterville, Dead Maple, Matanzick and Opel. This clearly flavors their style and sound to ensure a diverse and colorful musical palette when creating their music. Straight to the point songwriting and melodies with a desire to hook the listeners, are backed with a tight rhythm section alongside a breathing hammond organ. The rude mood rhythm guitars lay the basis for a screaming lead guitar and the table is finally set for the powerful and edgy vocals to establish the mood.
“Black Magic” tracklist:
01. Voodoo Ritual
03. Through The Fire
04. Morning Star
05. Black Magic
07. The Offering
08. Evening Star
“Black Magic” is out now on LP and digital can be listened and ordered here.
Souls Of Tide music is highly influenced by various bands from the 70´s, such as Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and The Doors. Souls of Tide continue their legacy to evolve the music to something different and unique. This all resulted in one stand-alone single, one EP and one full-length album since the beginning in 2014. The last album “Join The Circus” was released in 2016 through Mighty Music. They have played various gigs, festivals in both Norway and Denmark, where they also joined the Quireboys for a UK tour. Now, in May 2020 they return with their second album, a concept album about a female sorceress. The album contains eight songs written during a weekend on a cabin in the mountains of Norway.
