Frosttide are a five-piece melodic/folk metal band from Finland formed by Joni Snoro back in 2009. FROSTTIDE released their first EP called “Dawn of Frost” in 2010 and won the “Year’s underground act 2011” trophy at the Finnish Metal Awards. The band played shows as a support act with KORPIKLAANI as well as performing at “Nummirock 2012 Metal Festival” together with the likes of SABATON, FEAR FACTORY among other bands. The band released their second EP “Our Journey” – again single-handedly in 2012.
The first full-lenght album called “Awakening” was released on 30th of August 2013 via Noise Art Records. Same time Frosttide signed booking agency deal with Rock the Nation. Soon after the release of Awakening, Frosttide embarqued to play in the mighty Heidenfest 2013 tour together with Ensiferum, Turisas, Equilibrium, Suidakra + extended show bands. In the beginning of 2014, the band was back on the road supporting Ensiferum on their Unsung Heroes Tour France. After a successful tour in France, Frosttide played few shows in their home country Finland along with Korpiklaani & Finntroll.
2nd album “Blood Oath” saw the daylight 27th of February 2015!
Straight after Blood Oath’s release Frosttide joined the One Man Army Tour Finland with Ensiferum and later on the spring Paganfest 2015 with Wintersun, Turisas, Heidevolk, Obscurity + extended show bands. After the European tour band played yet another two shows in Finland together with Kivimetsän Druidi and Thyrien. During autumn 2015 Frosttide joined the Bridge Blast Metal Festival in Switzerland and played four more Finnish shows (one with the British metal legend Cradle Of Filth and the Australian Ne Obliviscaris).
The year 2016 started with a short creative break and the upcoming spring will bring two more Finnish shows. While laying low from the live environment, something is surely happening below the surface!
