I have been really enjoying October Tide's new album, Tunnel of No Light. Much as I love doom metal, I have to admit that it can be the sonic equivalent of oatmeal: indisputably nourishing, but occasionally a bit difficult to choke down in all its unremitting heaviness.
October Tide have the knack of infusing doom metal with a dose of atmosphere and melody. If I may be permitted to stretch my culinary metaphor, it's like adding nice fresh blueberries to your oatmeal.
So, October Tide. Part of a complete breakfast, delivering 100% of your RDA of vitamin Doom!
