OCTOBER TIDE
A THIN SHELL
CANDLELIGHT

Returning after a lengthy hiatus and a lineup reshuffle resulting in one less founding member in the ranks, Sweden’s October Tide provides a dark and shadowy hunk of heaviness in the form of the seven-track A THIN SHELL. Resonating a depressive atmosphere and an epic stream of gloom, these reformed morose metal merchants their heaviness into somber shards of despair delivered by a well-trained act with the glacial chill of a barren tundra (“Fragile”). Maintaining a sonic crush with some of the most elegant death/doom melodies this side of Paradise Lost and Swallow the Sun (“Blackness Devours”), October Tide’s threat inducing tracks are chock full of the down tempo scorn and luxurious instrumental interludes the forlorn can set their melancholy to.
