HEIDRA "The Blackening Tide"
The Blackening Tide is the new album from Heidra and the follow up to the band͛s first full length album "Awaiting Dawn͛" from 2014. The Blackening Tide is a concept album continuing the epic narrative and story arc that started with Awaiting Dawn, and building upon Heidra͛s musical trademarks of twin lead guitar harmonies, soaring orchestral passages, growled vocals mixed with powerful clean singing and a relentless barrage of crushing metal riffs. The story of a king deposed and his attempts to reclaim his throne continue and the album opens with the dawn of the day of reckoning and the march to the battlefield, where the two armies clash in a murderous fury. With victory seemingly at hand for our hero, events suddenly take a turn for the worse as he and all his army is cast into a hellish realm. The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by Marco Mastrobuono at Kick Recording Studio in Rome in 2017, and together with a recently signed record deal with Time to Kill Records should see an early fall 2018 release. Essential listening for fans of metal everywhere, we give you "The Blackening Tide"
