Starting off as a side project to Katatonia for the two first releases I am pleased Fred Norrman reformed October Tide in 2009 after leaving Katatonia. October Tide is one of the best Doom Metal bands out there, playing music that sounds like the best of old Katatonia and Daylight Dies. Winged Waltz is their best release yet, and that says a lot as all their releases so far has been great. On the lookout for some saddening gloomy doom from some of the best musicians Sweden have to offer then October Tide’s Winged Waltz is what you are looking for.
For fans of: Daylight Dies and Katatonia
Best song: Swarm
