Mercury Tide is the new band/project founded by
vocalist Dirk Thurisch, the project coming together as a result of the
uncertainty of Angel Dust's present and future.
Thurisch recruited his own cousin, Dennis Riehle, as well as two other
metal musicians, and the first album from this new project is
simply titled Why?
Though there are traces of the Angel Dust style to be found, in
isn't a true power metal album.
Instead, it's a more melodic, AOR-inspired album, but also more
somber in some
respects, reflecting a more introspective side to Thurisch.
It's a relatively varied release, as several styles are on display
here, and though
the songs are well-constructed, there isn't really a lot here that
hasn't been heard
is a decent melodic metal album, though not quite the
power metal fix
that Angel Dust fans might have been hoping for.
