We are saddened to inform that due to personal differences and motivation problems FROSTTIDE has decided to part ways Joni Snoro and Lauri Myllylä. The band will continue working as a 3-piece on the follower of Blood Oath which will see the light somewhere next year. We thank Joni and Lauri for their time in Frosttide and wish them the best in their musical career and future project.
This situation does not affect the album making process neither the sound of the band. The only difference will be the vocals that will be done from now om by Juho Patinen.
Our show in Bäkkäri, Helsinki on 10.12.2016 will remain as planned. Guitars and bass stations will be covered by two session musicians which will be announced next month.
We thank you for your understanding.
Frosttide's summer shows has been updated on the live section. On 3rd of June Frosttide will be performing in Joensuu for the first time and bring their show to La Barre, where SMC ry is celebrating their 5 year anniversary. On 1st of July Frosttide will return to Helsinki once again to perform on one of the Finland's biggest metal events, Tuska Festival. And later on 30th of July Frosttide will be back in Kuopio at Kuopio Rockcocks's official afterparty at Henry's Pub.

Frosttide will be supporting Cradle of Filth and Ne Obliviscaris in Helsinki, Nosturi 21.11.2015
Cradle Of Filth recently organized a competition for bands from Europe to get a great opportunity to get to share the stage with them. They picked up one act from each country, they are performing in, to open the evening. From Finland they picked up the dark/folkish metal band Frosttide!
Here are few words from Cradle Of Filth about the competition closure:
"It's been actually pretty cool to acknowledge the reaction from all these fantastic bands. It was nigh on impossible to choose for some countries, the amount of awesome tracks and videos submitted has been astounding, and further proof that extreme music is flourishing like a vast vascular net all about. It was a really tough call, one that was made by myself, Martin, Daniel, Rich, Ashok and Lindsay diligently, having listened to 370 plus bands and probably a 1000 tracks over the course of the last few weeks. My ears have practically just fallen off!
Anyhoo, apologies to all those who didn't claim the coveted slots (ooer!) and a big Hail for submitting their band in the first place! And to the winners... We'll be seeing you out on the field of battle soon!
Thank you for (quite literally) supporting the 'Filth, we hope to furnish you all on this upcoming tour..."
"The rising folk metal sensation Frosttide has now joined the ranks of Northern Solitude Entertainment after inking a deal on domestic bookings with the agency.
Frosttide released their second full length album “Blood Oath” back in February which got great critical acclaim all the way from Europe to Japan. The band supported Ensiferum on their “One Man Army” album release tour in Finland, one month later the band toured Europe together with such acts as Wintersun and Turisas e.g. and in April-May played two shows in Finland with Kivimetsän Druidi. As a result of the bookings agreement with Northern Solitude Entertainment, (who also are responsible for the domestic bookings of Kivimetsän Druidi and Unshine) the agency will be put in charge of the domestic shows of Frosttide.
The singer-guitarist Joni Snoro shared a few words on the new co-operation with Northern Solitude Entertainment:
“Earlier this year we played on two “Finnish Folk Metal Storm” shows which were arranged by NSE and that’s where it all got started! We can’t wait for the further co-operation with NSE and the other NSE bands! You should definitely stay tuned for more!”
Frosttide shall play a few selected domestic shows in the autumn season and alongside one show at Bridge Blast Metalfest in Switzerland. More information about the domestic shows will be given later.

Frosttide's second album "Blood Oath" recording and mixing is now finished and it's about to see the daylight 27.2.2015. The album is going to be released via NoiseArt Records.
"This has led to better compositions and arranging. The album follows the same air as "Awakening" as these are both connected. But this is all taken to the next level! It is going to be aggressive, heavy, melodic, bombastic and with very deep and beautiful atmospheres."
Also, the band kept their trademark and returned with another concept album: "When recording "Awakening" we decided to make a set of brother albums. We saved one song from "Awakening" to be on the second record. So, even though this is our second record, we decided to base the lyrics on the story that occurred before "Awakening". Making this a prequel. The story allows the listener to know where everything originated and what led to the arrogant and greedy attitude that can be seen in the protagonist of "Awakening"."
The first single is going to be published 23.01.2015.
PAGANFEST has been highly rated by Pagan and Folk-Metal-fans everywhere for years now. This appreciation is based on high-quality billings and fan-friendly conditions. Genre fanatics shall set a mark on their calendars for March 2015 and safe the date for the seventh edition of the most ecstatic Pagan-live-session!
Finnish superstars WINTERSUN are going to be one of the main-headliners of the tour. Hailing from the Pagan-olympus, a status they achieved with their high-rates albums „Wintersun“ and „ Time I“ as well as with their rare and enormously impressive live-performances. This name for itself should get Pagan-fans go totally nuts! They team up with their finnish comrades TURISAS to form the headlining-duo of the upcoming tour! Viking/Folk Metal-chartbreakers TURISAS come along with an enormous package of band-hits from all of their four albums. Watch out for exciting Battle Metal-acion at PAGANFEST TOUR 2015!
As WINTERSUN and TURISAS are not really mad about touring on their own, they come along with three other acts at the normal tourdates and a massive threepiece addon on the extended shows!
Dutch Folksters HEIDEVOLK are the next addition to this fine billing, presenting their new album as well as tons of band-classics. Support-acts are the Viking-Black-Deathers OBSCURITY and the Epic-Dark-Folk-Metallers FROSTTIDE.
The Paganfest Extended Showse have always been the absolute highlights of PAGANFEST TOURS through all these years! In 2015 Folk-Metal-superstars KORPIKLAANI will add a spicy bunch of Folk Metal finished with some Humppa-action to the bill to drive the live-crowds totally mad! They are joined by Hannover’s finest GRAILKNIGHTS, who add some Melodic Death / Power Metal to spread up the musical bandwidth a bit. Last but definitely not least German FINSERFORST are completing PAGANFEST 2015’s billing.

Frosttide states they have started to work on a new album. The song writing process has already progressed to the final stage and the band is heading to studio as soon as possible. Some demotracks already exist and at the moment the band are practicing and arranging the new songs. Since producing a decent product takes its own time, the release of the new album is planned for middle 2015.
