Welcome to Throwback Thursday! This is the place where we get to indulge in nostalgia and wax poetic about excellent…
It's a pretty long tour and hits Canada more than once!
"All we did was smoke cigarettes, drink coffee and record these stupid fucking side projects."
A winsome collection of lilting prog and impassioned melodies, The Fall of Hearts takes us even further afield from the metal scene than usual for a latter era Katatonia effort. Relying more than ever on acoustic space and lightly amplified instrumentation, distorted guitars only occasionally pierce through the otherwise contemplative soundscape
This edition includes bummer metal, prog insanity, some death metal variety and more! To the metals…
Not "Serein," which was the last single.
Goddammit. New Katatonia is going to be so good.
Goddamn this is sad. Listen to it until you're to sad to do anything else with your day.
NEW KATATONIA. IT'S COMING.
You just need to hear this excellence.
Bringing a classic back to life!
Katatonia have been in a reflective mood of late. After retooling their 2012 album Dead End Kings on last year's Dethroned and Uncrowned, the band return not with a new album of studio material, but instead an expansive package collecting full-length live performances of albums Last Fair Deal Gone Down and Night Is the New Day. While the former is often considered the band's masterpiece, the latter made the cut solely because it was the most recent album to have been released at the time these gigs were recorded in 2011. Fair enough, but why now?
