The 50 Heaviest Songs Before Black Sabbath: #10-1
03 - High Tide, "Death Warmed Up" (1969)
Whoever it was who said “Death is a dish best served cold” never heard this noisy little number by England’s High Tide. Grab a ringside seat as Tony Hill’s guitar battles it out with Simon House’s electric violin -- for nine minutes. High Tide took a great deal of influence from surf guitar, using washes of reverb almost as a type of distortion. Scott Ian would later cite surf guitarists -- Dick Dale in particular -- as being a big influence on the alternate picking techniques of thrash players.
