13/Nov/2018 OCTOBER TO BEGIN RECORDING NEW ALBUM

OCTOBER TIDE's Fredrik Norrman (ex-Katatonia), co-founder and guitarist of the Swedish, melodic death metal group, reports that the band has been writing songs for their sixth studio album, follow-up to "Winged Waltz" from 2016, and has booked a studio for the end of November, to start the recording process. 

Norrman commented: "We havn’t made much noise about this so far, but we have written a bunch of songs latley. In fact, we have almost a whole album more or less finished".

The plans are to have the album - whose mixing and mastering duties will be handeled by Karl Daniel Liden (Bloodbath, Katatonia, Cult Of Luna) - completed by late January, and released on Agonia Records in spring 2019.  

OCTOBER TIDE's last live appearance took place in Dubai (United Arab Emirates) on October 26th. Shortly before the recording sessions, the band will travel south to Bucharest (Romania), where they'll perform at the Metal Gates Festival with Rotting Christ, Shining and Draconian. Whilst recording the album, they'll play a show at December Doom Festival in Vantaa (Finland), with plans to do a special  setlist from their debut release,"Rain Without End".

Formed in 1995 by Katatonia members, Jonas Renkse and Fred Norrman, OCTOBER TIDE spawned two, now-cult releases, "Rain Without End" (1997) and "Grey Dawn" (1999), before going on hiatus for over eleven years. Reunited in 2009, the Swedes released three studio albums: "A Thin Shell" (2010), "Tunnel Of No Light" (2013) and "Winged Waltz" (2016), all of which featured exceptional guitar work, on top of the band's emotional touch on death metal.
