October Tide

October Tide was a side project formed by two members of Katatonia, with their style not at all far removed from that fine group. Melancholic, sorrowful mid-paced metal, with death vocals laid over the top, Grey Dawn (the second of two similar albums) isn't as heavyhanded as the early Katatonia material but fits nicely alongside the middle releases such as Brave Murder Day. Two albums were released in the late nineties before packing it in, with Fredrik Norrman putting together a new version of the band a decade later.
