_ Swedish Melodic Death Doomsters October Tide has inked a worldwide deal with Singapore record label Pulverised Records.
This comes in the wake of their reformation after a year's absence and consequently they wasted no time and went on to release the acclaimed new album after eleven years with "A Thin Shell".
2012 sees the quintet plugging away at their as-of-yet untitled new album and is sure to cause a storm amongst the foundations of the Swedish Metal scene. They are scheduled to record it at the well-known Swedish Black Lounge Studio (Scar Symmetry, Carnal Forge, etc) and will be produced by the Swedish legend that is Jonas Kjellgren.
The drummer Robin Bergh had this to say in reflection of the band's latest achievements:
"We are extremely pleased to sign with Pulverised Records for the next album and beyond. During the negotiations for the new deal we noticed that Roy, Calvin and the entire Pulverised crew were seriously thrilled about the band and the art we create, hence we are confident that this doomish union will bring OCTOBER TIDE to the next level. Our new strong line-up feels utterly satisfying and we are more than ready for the future to come. We are currently finishing up the writing process for the yet untitled fourth full-length which will be recorded during May and June at Black Lounge Studio with Mr. Jonas Kjellgren behind the knobs. This upcoming OCTOBER TIDE recording will surely be a deadly doom metal masterpiece, you mark my words!"
Pulverised Records label manager Roy Yeo further commented:
"Having been a personal long-time fan of the band, there was no way we would let this chance slip past us to sign them for the new album! With their brand of despondent and mind-numbing modus operandi that is truly unique to OCTOBER TIDE, it is clearly evident that the band had already found their sound as heard on "A Thin Shell". Now that the album deal is signed, sealed and delivered, we now wait in anticipation on how the brand new opus will mould itself into yet another benchmark masterpiece!
However the band have shifted members, with Tobias Netzell (vocals) and Pierre Stam (bass) both exiting for personal reasons and are replaced by bassist Mattias Norrman (ex-Katatonia, ex-Interment, etc) and vocalist Alexander Högbom (Volturyon, Spasmodic).
OCTOBER TIDE is:
Alexander Högbom (Volturyon, Spasmodic) - Vocals
Fredrik Norrman (Uncanny, ex-Katatonia) - Guitars
Mattias Norrman (Dellamorte, ex-Katatonia, ex-Interment) - Bass
Emil Alstermark (Mandylon) - Guitars
Robin Bergh (ex-Gorement, ex-Amaran) - Drums
