Mellieha, Malta based Active Metal Band ALIGN THE TIDE has released the official music video for “Dead Religion,” the title track off of their debut album.
“‘Dead Religion’ takes inspiration from prayers which remain unanswered, thereby instilling doubt on each person. False advertising from preachers and prophets lighten up the grim thoughts of death with nice ideas of the afterlife, which some people choose to believe it, even though we were not promised anything after death.” – Align The Tide
The founders of the band Danny on Drums & Kyle on Guitars/Vocals, have been exploring music genres for the past nine years before settling in the active sound you hear today!
Joining the ranks with Gabriel on bass & Alston on rhythm guitar, the line-up was completed. Together, they composed music based on thrash, groove & melodic metal resulting in the recording of their debut album Dead Religion & videos for “The Golden Throne” & “Welcome to Hell” from the same self financed record. Merchandise has been designed & produced to accompany the above release.
The band participated in several local gigs & festivals where they have rooted their main fan base before embarking on a mini European tour visiting Germany and the Czech Republic.
In March 2018, the band supported the legendary band Mushroomhead on their American tour visiting several main cities such as: Mesa, San Diego, Portland, Seattle, Jerome, Fort Collins, Denver, Colorado Springs, Lincoln, Waterloo, Minneapolis, Joliet, Madison, Racine, Cleveland.
As time went by, Alston decided to take a break from the music business and thus, Nikki was recruited to the family as rhythm guitar.
