MERCURY TIDE “Killing Saw”

“Killing Saw”
(Limited Access Records)
I like Angel Dust even if it took me some time to get into them back in the 80s. There was something to their speed metal that appealed to me. But that was then and this is now. You can’t live on old merits alone. If you are not worth anything today you’ll be discarded like an old dish cloth. Mercury Tide dos look the game but can they deliver the goods too. The only thing that Mercury Tide has in common with Angel Dust is vocalist Dirk. This is metal in a whole different school. Not so much speed as power metal. Perhaps a bit like Kamelot. Or a male-fronted Nightwish. Big and bombastic on the verge of pouring over. This is metal for the more grander moments in life. And I like it. Anders Ekdahl
