Chaos Records is proud to present Tideless’ highly anticipated second album, »Eye Of Water«, on CD/digital and LP late this year.
The Cenote, hidden underground pathways of water which lead to the underworld, or what some believe is the shared afterlife…
An anguished echo from beneath the surface, one that has bled in departure, but never forgotten in heart…
…amidst this, Tideless return, having completed their second full-length, »Eye Of Water«. Featuring concurrent members of Xantam and Seraphic Disgust, what once was simply death-doom influenced by The Chasm and Disembowelment started to drift more into an experimental field come the release of Tideless’ debut album, 2021’s »Adrift In Grief«, which Chaos Records eventually reissued. Heavily influenced by shoegaze (Alison’s Halo, Starflyer 59, Slowdive) and old prog (King Crimson and Magma), the band progressed into what they refer to as shoegazing death metal.
Now, with »Eye Of Water«, Tideless advance their sound more than ever with tranquil darkness and healing hallucinations. The album started production in 2021 at Toadhouse Recording Studios in Portland, Oregon and continued in Ramona Recording Studios in Ramona, California. Returning this time to produce, record, and engineer the album was Charlie Koryn (Morbid Angel, Incantation, Ascended Dead). Additional solos were laid down by Garrett Johnson (Wandering Mind) of VoidCeremony. But, more than these credits can convey, »Eye Of Water« lays forth a rippling, incandescent landscape of majestic, triumphant shoegazing grief of death. More daring, more expansive, more shoegazing and yet also more deathly, Tideless’ second album is an hour-long journey that indeed underlines that »Adrift In Grief« was no one-trick pony – that this band of sonic alchemists are operating in a field truly their own, daunting in breadth and depth but infinitely rewarding in such boundless creativity. Open your heart and let the sun hit.
