    I heard over at the Metal Archives forum that Fred has written a new October Tide album. It's unknown if Jonas will be involved though.

    Does anybody have any info/news on this?

    There was an interview with Blakkheim recently where he told Fred allready did a new album and is shopping labels. Jonas isn't involved. Let me find the link..

    Not much more. Blakkie said about that much in an interview. Jonas will not be involved, apparently.

    Edit: too slow.

    I hope there will be a new vocalist, the vocals on Grey Dawn put me off. Rain Without End is great though.

    Yeah, vocs on Grey Dawn felt a bit standard melodeath-ish compared to Renkse's vocs on RWE.

    Grey Dawn is fantastic. Zero Complaints about that album.

    I agree! I don't get the dislike for that album that some people have for it here. I find in some ways it's better than Rain Without End, but in other ways it's inferior. I say both October Tide albums are essential and I really don't favor one or the other.

    Agreed. I also think the riffs are a bit more depressive/epic on RWE. GD is still a fantastic album, though!

    I agree, might even prefer Grey Dawn a tad over RWE. Marten Hansen's vocals are very intense.

    Musically I think the albums are fairly even. RWE has more atmosphere definitely, while Grey Dawn is more conventionally riffy and heavy.

    Most metal band's entire catalogue is a joke compared to both October Tide albums. Not only "doom metal", but metal as a genre. I never saw 'em merely as a side project or anything like that.

    October Tide = legendary band imo.

    I am very intrigued to hear the new tunes to see what kind of difference there is without Jonas.
