October Tide stream tracks from upcoming album Winged Waltz

Johannes Nordqvist Hogbom

October Tide have made three tracks from their upcoming album Winged Waltz available to stream.

The full-length follow-up to 2013’s Tunnel Of No Light is released on April 22.

October Tide features Volturyon vocalist Alexander Hogsbom, Katatonia’s former guitarist and bassist, Fredrik and Mattias Norman, Mandylon guitarist Emil Alstermark and sticksman Jocke Wallgren, who was recently recruited as a touring drummer for Amon Amarth.

Hogbom says of Winged Waltz: “This is undoubtedly the best and most emotionally charged material October Tide has created, in my opinion. I know how much hard work Fredrik (guitar) has put into making this album and you can really feel the thought behind it all.

“I almost injured myself physically and was close to passing out a couple of times during the recording of the vocals. I gave it all to match the intense music and those powerful lyrics and I’m very happy with the result.”

They’ll also tour Europe with labelmates Demonical this autumn. Dates can be viewed below.
