Formed in 1995 by then KATATONIA guitarist Fredrik 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.


Their latest album “A Thin Shell” was released in September 2010 through Candlelight Records.


Recorded at Black Lounge studios with producer Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY) and featuring artwork by Travis Smith (OPETH, TESTAMENT etc) “A Thin Shell” delivers what fans have anxiously awaited from this treasured band. Seven doom-laden and emotive songs that are every bit as heavy as they are catchy fill the impressive recording that officially closes the band’s self-imposed, decade-long hiatus.

Fredrik Norrman – guitars (ex-KATATONIA)
