"The future is dead, and all my dreams stillborn"...
This was my first Sol Invictus studio album, after I discovered them with the live CD "Black Europe". I remember having found this second-hand together with "The Lamp of the Invisible Light" and Ain Soph's "Aurora", a very lucky day! I eventually sold the CD version to buy the vinyl... wax addiction stroke again!
Though surely not the best Sol album, "The Killing Tide" contains some fine songs, especially on side A: the title-track, with its electric guitar and the epic verses is a classic, just like the depressing and wonderful "Like A Sword" and the atmospheric "In A Silent Place". All these songs were played live when I saw the band last year, and it was great.
Unfortunately, side B is filled with some re-worked versions of songs from "Trees In Winter", most notably "Sawney Bean" and "English Murder". The originals are however a lot better, especially "Sawney Bean" sung by Ian Read. Therefore, I usually consider "The Killing Tide" as a mini-LP and hardly ever listen to side B.
