Weight Of The Tide are a band from Reno, Nevada that plays a very melodic form of sludge metal and this is a review of their 2017 album "All Told" which will be released on September 29th by Undergroove.
Atmospheric drones start off the album before going into a heavier direction where you can also hear all of the musical instruments that are presented on the recording along with the solos and leads also being done in a very melodic fashion while the vocals are done in more of a clean style.
A great amount of melody can be heard in the guitar riffing while clean playing can also be heard in certain sections of the recording along with some elements of traditional metal as well as the riffs also mixing in the heaviness of sludge and some songs also add in a small amount of synths and all of the songs stick to either a slow or mid tempo direction and blast beats can also be heard briefly.
Weight Of The Tide plays a style of sludge metal that is more melodic than most bands of this genre, the production sounds very professional while the lyrics cover dark and real life themes.
In my opinion Weight Of The Tide are a very great sounding melodic sludge metal band and if you are a fan of this musical genre, you should check out this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "The End Becomes You" and "Architect". 8 out of 10.
