October Tide signed by Candlelight

Candlelight Records has confirmed the worldwide signing of October Tide, the band featuring guitarist Fredrick Norrman, vocalist Tobias Netzell, drummer Robin Bergh, and session bassist Jonas Kjellgren (Scar Symmetry, Carnal Forge.

The group are currently finishing work on their still untitled new album.  Expected for release early fall, it will be the first new recording from the band in over ten years.  It follows recent reissue of the band’s acclaimed debut ‘Rain Without End’.

Formed in 1995 by then Katatonia guitarist Norrman and Katatonia/Bloodbath vocalist Jonas Renkse, October Tide quickly made a mark with two albums recorded and released during the years 1997 and 1999.  Much of the band’s music was written during a short break up of Katatonia which later proved only temporary as the band would reform.  October Tide did not perform live during this short period of activity and have enjoyed cult status throughout the doom/metal community.
