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 11 years. Reunited in 2009, and since 2015 with a new full-time drummer Jocke Wallgren (Valkyrja, Astrophobos), the Swedes continue to push their vision of melodic death/doom metal to the next level. Executed with passion, the band’s new album “Winged Waltz” is a showcase of what talent and expertise can bring to the table.
