October Tide are writing new music

Posted by on February 15, 2023


October Tide are currently in the writing stage for their seventh full-length effort. The Swedish melodeath doom outfit plans to complete the recording process sometime in the summer. The recording will begin in May at the Swedish studio Gröndahl with Karl Daniel Lidén (Bloodbath, Katatonia). Later, it will be worked on at home studios, returning to Lidén for the final mix and mastering. Fredrik Norrman (ex-Katatonia, ex-Trees of Eternity, Thenighttimeproject) has promised the album will be “less doomish” compared to their previous efforts, ranging from 1997’s Rain Without End to 2019’s In Splendor Below


Norrman explains:

“What to say about the sound? It’s definitley a step away from the doom genre we have been stuck in. Its more death metal in an oldschool kind of way. Its still October Tide but with a touch of the past.”
