Established in 1995 in Sweden, October Tide was born as a personal death/doom metal project of former Katatonia members – vocalist Jonas Renkse and guitarist Fred Norrman. Just two years after its inception, the band released “Rain Without End” (1997) and “Gray Dawn” (1999), two great records which later on became true cult albums. Despite its success, the band took a break for seven years, reuniting in 2009, after Norrman’s departure from Katatonia, when he returned with new material, “A Thin Shell”, with vocals by Tobias Netzell (from In Mourning).
The reunion was a good omen, so in 2013 October Tide released two new studio albums “Tunnel Of No Light” (2013) and “Winged Waltz” (2016), both animated by a sensitive approach of death metal and complex guitar lines.
Being always at the center of the Swedish melodic death metal scene, October Tide were constantly impressed with the energy brought to the stage and with the emotion and depth, dominated by complex guitar riffs.
