Hard rock and melodic metal should be packed with catchy riffs and catchy choruses in my humble
opinion, and that’s exactly what the Danish band MISSING TIDE provide us with.
The band consists of vocalist Henrik Brockmann (ex-Royal Hunt), guitarist Jacob Kjaer (ex-Royal Hunt),
bass player Kasper Gram (Manticora) and drummer Allan Tschicaja (Pretty Maids) and ‘Follow the Dreamer’ is the title of their debut album and a pleasant surprise in my book.
We get 11 songs of pure hard rock/melodic metal packed with catchy riffs and catchy choruses. We get
a top notch production where every instrument is clearly audible. We get everything that a fan of the melodic side of metal hunger for. Yes, this is certainly a pleasant surprise in book, ass written above.
With a large number of quality cuts to choose from, everyone is bound to have their have their own favourite, but my personal picks could very well be the title track, “Follow the Dreamer”, “Never Surrender”, the up-tempo rocker, “Traces of Fire”, “Push it to the Limit” and the very last track “Long Live the Heroes” a tribute song to all the great hard rock and metal bands of the 80’s.
The band is currently working on new material for their next album... an album that I definitely have to check out.
Thumps up for MISSING TIDE!
