OCTOBER NOIR - Fate, Wine & Wisteria - Reviewed At Metal Digest ! Check it out here at this link: https://metal-digest.com/2021/10/18/october-noir-fate-wine-wisteria/
Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live in a world in which Peter Steele never passed away, and Type O Negative had continued to produce music? If the answer is ‘yes’, then you will be happy to know that you are not alone, October Noir have successfully carried this torch and have not failed to continue this path with their latest album ‘Fate, Wine, & Wisteria’.
The first thing that anyone will notice is how close the style is to Type O Negative, the vocals and lyrics are very much borne from the dark, gloomy, and sexual appetites of the late Peter Steele. Any Type O Negative fan will know exactly what to expect from this album with its clever word play and deep lyrical content, gloomy and powerful music as well as the haunting, deep, and gothic vocals.
The album’s recently released single, Windows, makes a powerful start to the album, with both the lyrics and the music hitting hard that really makes you feel hopeful through the despair. The whole album feels more like a play that you are listening to, with title interludes throughout the album to set the mood for the coming songs.
All-in-all a good album from a band who have definitely achieved what they set out to do, by carrying on the Negativism of Type O Negative to the next generation. - Metal Digest

Thirteen tales of love, loss, pain and arrogance!
Gothic rock band OCTOBER NOIR has just unleashed their highly-anticipated new full-length release, Fate, Wine & Wisteria. The themes of the album draw upon lust, loss, love, pain and arrogance.
The album features the recently released single, "Windows" for which the band shot a video. The song is about finding a savior in the midst of being in a miserable state and being able to see everything the world has to offer through that person's eyes. The video was filmed in multiple locations around south and central Alabama, depicting the band being in different parts of the world and all that the scenery has to offer.
Fate, Wine & Wisteria was engineered and produced by Paul Bento (CARNIVORE) & Wicked Wind Studios.
Since 2016, OCTOBER NOIR has been crafting original songs and covers faithfully in the spirit of their namesake. Born out of a desire to fill a void long left unfilled for grieving fans, OCTOBER NOIR’s music is an echo of the legacy of one from beyond the veil. After the tragic passing of Type O Negative’s Peter Steele, the band seeks to carry the torch of his iconic music to the next generation as the first true disciples of Negativism. The band has produced two albums and six cover singles to date. On September 22nd 2021, the band added a third album to their repertoire (also featuring their seventh cover, a favorite from Glenn Danzig) -Fate, Wine & Wisteria-available on CD and digital formats.
