Formed in 1995 by then-KATATONIA
vocalist Jonas Renkse
, OCTOBER TIDE
quickly made a mark with two albums recorded and released during the years 1997 and 1999 ("Rain Without End"
and "Grey Dawn"
, respectively). Much of the band's music was written during a short break up of KATATONIA
which later proved only temporary as the band would reform and continues today. OCTOBER TIDE
would not perform live during this short period of activity and few interviews with the members were granted despite praise from both media and fans. The band, until reforming in late 2009, would maintain a cult status throughout the doom/metal community.
