Alexander Högbom (vocals) commented on “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 (guitars) 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 pass 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”.
The successor to “Tunnel Of No Light” (2013) has been recorded, mixed and mastered in Wing Studios (Demonical, Centinex, Diabolical) in Sweden and produced by Sverker Widgren.

Formed in 1995 by Katatonia members Jonas Renkse and Fred Norrman,OCTOBER TIDE spawned two now-cult releases, “Rain Without End” (1997) and“Grey Dawn” (1999), before going on hiatus for over eleven years. Reunited in 2009, the Swedes continue to push their vision of melodic death/doom metal to the next level.
