Doom/Death Metal monolith October Tide has signed with Agonia Records. The band’s last album, Tunnel of No Light, was released in 2013 and according to the band the follow up will see the light of day early next year.
Formed in 1995 by Katatonia members, Jonas Renkse and Fred Norrman, October Tide spawned two cult releases, Rain Without End and Grey Dawn, before going on hiatus for over 11 years.
Reunited in 2009, the Swedes continue to push their vision of characteristic melodic doom/death metal to the next level. With a new full-time drummer Jocke Wallgren (Valkyrja, Astrophobos), the band is fully engaged in working on the upcoming album.
