October Tide are a band from Sweden that has been featured before in this zine with a musical style on this recording of being a mixture of black and melodic doom metal and this is a review of t heir 2013 album "Tunnel Of No Light" which was released by Pulverised Records.
Drums range from slow to mid paced playing with no fast drumming or blast beats being present on t his recording, while the bass playing has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars and at times they have a very powerful sound to them.
Rhythm guitars range from slow to mid paced riffs that combine melodic doom metal with some black metal influences as well as some soft and clean playing, while the lead guitars are very melodic sounding doom metal guitar solos and leads.
Vocals range from death metal growls that are very easy to understand as well as some high pitched black metal screams, while the lyrics cover dark and depressive themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy, dark and professional sound where you can hear all of the musical instruments that are present on this recording.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from October Tide and if you are a fan of this band, you should enjoy this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Our Constellation" "Watch The Drowners" and "In Hopeless Pursuit". RECOMMENDED BUY.
