High Tide - "Sea Shanties" 1969

Psychedelic Heavy Metal that's a must hear. This 1969 debut from High Tide is without a doubt one of the heaviest available at the time. Even compared to 80's Heavy Metal, High Tide appears to have "been there, done that, got the T-shirt." Enriched deep within the psychedelic scene, High Tide explores the field in a new direction, forceful guitar riffing, high paced rhythms, (and a few slow paced passages thrown in for good measure) makes High Tide stand with one foot in 60's psych, the other in 80's metal. **Unfortunately, as I tested this post, it came to my attention that youtube had pulled the link to the entire album due to copyright issues.However, I was able to find at least one song that wasn't blocked and it's not a very great specimen of this band. I will continue to search for more material.**
