Latest Local Fixation... Black Tide!
I can't believe I haven't written about these kiddies before, but I'll fix that soon. Black Tide are four guys from Miami who are garnering major buzz for their crunching, amped-up, old-school kinda thrashy metal sound. They've already got a deal with Interscope, and they're currently touring Europe with Avenged Sevenfold. They just got a shout-out in the January issue of SPIN, and they'll be playing all the industry showcases at this year's SXSW. Oh, and they range in age from 15 to 19. Here's their video for "Shockwave." How cute. Oops, I mean, it's metal, it's not cute... It's brutal! Or something. Anyways, stay tuned for more about the boys in the future. -- Arielle Castillo
