The Rising Tide EP Opens with 'Cave In' and a sweet rounded melodic riff that is charged with an underlying emotion setting the scene for illuminatus to power through with their trademark wall of passionate guitar scrubbing while Julio's vocals make the hair on the back of your neck raise.
This is the introduction to the new illuminatus four track EP and is worth the entrance fee already, but never ones to short change the fans, illuminatus proceed to give double value with the title track 'The Rising Tide', the passion that the band write with is truly amazing, and to bundle it with a metal sound that can be harsh but beautiful at the same time must surly be unique. illuminatus provide three fresh powerful songs to wet our appetite with the third song simply 'Red' rising and sweeping like a stormy sea that you wish would never end, finishing off with a wonderful acoustic version of one of the bands earlier songs 'Wargasm' which conveys ever more meaning each time you listen.
illuminatus on this showing are proving that there is a lot more to come yet from this team of committed to the cause band of brothers, long may they rise.
