Decibel Magazine today has premiered the first song from October Tide’s new album, ‘A Thin Shell’, scheduled for release on September 28. “Blackness Devours” can now be heard by visiting THIS LINK. ‘A Thin Shell’ is the first new album from Sweden’s October Tide in over ten years.

Mixed/mastered at Black Lounge Studios in Sweden and featuring artwork from American photographer and graphic designer Travis Smith (Opeth, Katatonia, Testament, Death etc.) the album delivers what fans have anxiously awaited from this treasured band. Guitarist and founder Fredrik Norrman recently commented, “I have wanted to get October Tide back together for some time. When we decided the time was right, ideas for new songs surprisingly came together nicely. Many sleepless nights were involved, with lots of coffee of course, but the songs were written in flow one after another.”
