Red Tide Rising: The Rising

The Denver-based quartet Red Tide Rising's aggressive and impressive full-length debut The Rising arrived with high hopes. After all, these guys generated some buzz touring with In This Moment and releasing three early and explosive singles "2:13," "Cold" and "The Rising," which also happen to be among the best songs on the disc. While comparisons to Five Finger Death Punch, Avenged Sevenfold and Godsmack are fair, it's also safe to say that the members of Red Tide Rising take the best sounds from the modern/active-rock scene and create their own amalgam.

The band also worked with a production team whose credits include everyone from In This Moment and Staind to Madonna and Kelly Clarkson. As a result, the album sounds like a million bucks light-years ahead of many self-released CDs. But songs make the record, and Red Tide Rising has plenty of them. Barring the short instrumental opener "Rising Tides," every track here could conceivably receive radio play. Of course, the world is a cruel place, and this album sadly won't get the recognition it deserves.
