Katatonia related news a-plenty.

There’s a new In Mourning album coming out on the 20th day of May through Agonia Records. It is called Afterglow, continuing the story from The Weight of Oceans (which is a good); it will be slightly more complex than its predecessors (which is also a good), and the sound will be more alive and less studio corrected (which is also also good). Check out the the cover art by Necrolord and track listing below, if you’re into that sort of stuff.

01. Fire And Ocean
02. The Grinning Mist
03. Ashen Crown
04. Below Rise To The Above
05. The Lighthouse Keeper
06. The Call To Orion
07. AfterglowAfterglow/InMourning

 

Afterglow will be the band’s first album with former Katatonia drummer Daniel Liljekvist behind the kit.

October Tide is releasing a new album, Winged Waltz, on the 22nd day of April through Agonia Records as well. The band’s lineup has undergone a few changes even after its ’09 reformation by Fredrik Norrman (ex-Katatonia, Trees of Eternity). Matias Norrman (his brother’s mate in ToE) on bass, Emil Alstermark on guitars, Alexander Högbom (Centinex) on vocals and the latest addition, Jocke Wallgren (Valkyrja), on drums. You can stream “Sleepless Sun” below. It sounds, unsurprisingly, quite a lot like A Tunnel Of No Light, its predecessor.

______________________________________

Moving on to, you guessed it, Katatonia. The Fall of Hearts will be released on 20th of May. It will be the band’s first to feature drummer Daniel Moilanen and guitarist Roger Öjersson (Tiamat). The album was self-produced and mixed by Jens Bogren, with Karl Daniel Lidén brought in as an engineer. Says the band (and label) about the album themselves:

“Katatonia have spent the past four years since the release of Dead End Kings touring the world, as well as expanding their fanbase through two special albums on Kscope, the sister label of Peaceville. 2013 saw the release of Dethroned & Uncrowned which exploded the core of the songs on Dead End Kings creating new moods and textures. In 2015, they released the live acoustic album and concert film, Sanctitude. Both releases illustrate the band’s journey toward this, their current more progressive sound.

Katatonia will continue to push their musical boundaries beyond their roots in the metal scene while drawing in new fans from across the musical spectrum like peers such as Opeth and Anathema have also done, cementing Katatonia’s place as one of the most revered and cherished of all bands in the world of modern heavy music.

This album is probably everything we unknowingly ever dreamed of to release. It’s a bleak but adventurous journey through our elements, we haven’t held back, we have pushed to get forward and backward in the ever spiralling night of our musical legacy.”

            The Thing achieves something for me that very few horror/sci-movies are able to do; it creates a sense of foreboding dread and taut drama in a way that never feels forced. It is, in many ways, perfect.

        • both yours and Link’s songs confirmed what i suspected about Ne Obliviscaris: listening to them requires commitment. i’d really have to be in the right time and the right place, with plenty of patience to digest it a few times. some days that’s great, other days i just want to blast some Infernal War, if you catch my drift.

          • brokensnow

            indeed. its work but its worth it. They bring it live.

          • Indeed, the songs have too much parts, is better to enjoy it when you have the proggy mentality and delve into the sound in one sit.

  • Karhu, I felt you were spoken to my melancholic soul.

    Goat put me up with new Katatonia, I listened a few days ago the new October Tide (GODDAMN, THOSE MELODIC RIFFS!!! I NEED IT) and the new In Mourning caught me by surprise. The Weight of Oceans is such a great display of melodic death/doom mastery.

    In other news: that new Discharge isn’t bad, I will def check it out the full album when I have the chance. John Carpenter’s first Lost Themes was good for me, so I’m happy for more new music of his. And, I feel bad about The Resistance situation, their last record seems to be very fun.

  • Paddlin’ Rites ov Beargod

    THERE’S ANOTHER NEW CARPENTER SONG HERE ANGEL’S ASYLUM.

    “Katatonia will continue to push their musical boundaries beyond their roots in the metal scene while drawing in new fans from across the musical spectrum like peers such as Opeth and Anathema have also done, cementing Katatonia’s place as one of the most revered and cherished of all bands in the world of modern heavy music.”

    Well there’s no lack of self confidence right there. Anyway, I’m still excited for a new Katatonia album, even if I do fear they’re fully about to go down the Opeth route.

    • Stanley

      I know what you’re saying, but I think the Katatonia are moving forwards in their writing and inspiration and Opeth are going backwards.

      • Dubs

        One of those two bands is still writing music I personally find interesting, and it isn’t Opeth.

        • Stanley

          Nice.

        • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

          Never truly thought Opeth would ever suck as bad as they do now.

          • I’m there with you. I always wondered if Mikael Åkerfeldt was still able to scream, if it would have NOT changed the direction of the band. I mean they could have still stayed somewhat death metal even with him not being able to growl. There are plenty of other Sweedish death metal vocalists that could have taken over the un-clean vocals.

          • Stanley

            There’s no way he would have handed over the reins.

          • So, you think that they would not have stayed death metal then?

          • Nah, Akerfeldt was always a perfectionist and always was inmersed in the classic proggy vibe. I tend to think that he’s some of those guys that thinks that “metal is a teenager phase”.

          • Well Poop. At least there is Still Life to listen too.

          • Good choice!

          • Stanley

            You know it.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            My Arms, Your Hearse?

          • Yes, another favorite Opeth album of mine. Honestly I enjoy most everything from Blackwater Park down to Orchid.

          • brokensnow

            I enjoyed watershed

          • Didn’t that album have blastbeats?

          • Dubs

            Me 2

          • brokensnow

            “Metal until your 40’s and cant growl and have lost hearing” phase

          • Talk louder, I can’t fucking hear you! 😀

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I’d still take his “teenage phase” over his current quest of boring people to death.

          • Orchid was a great album. Is that what you are referring too?

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I love Orchid. No I mean that if he thinks the old Opeth albums were a “teenage phase”, I’d much rather have that same teenage phase back instead of the “adult” snooze albums he’s churning out now.

          • “You will understand when you are older” lol

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            “Older and wiser”

            *flush*

          • “And nothing else matters”

          • easy there, Link nabbed me earlier with a Metallica reference

          • This guy gets it. He really gets it.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            “So close, no matter how faaaaaaarrrrrr”

            Another winning point for “maturity” that album right there.

          • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God
          • Ackerfeldt claims to have matured past all the death metal. so when Opeth went on tour with the new proggy direction, it had to have been obvious that the true fans wanted more death metal because nobody liked it. so of course next tour they added back the harsh songs. but he’s so fucking pompous that no matter what he does AT THE TIME is supposedly the best thing since sliced bread, without any worry that he used to make the same claims about older material.

          • Jimmy’s right, Akerfeldt is a pretentious douche.

          • What a cock.

          • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God

            Mikael went from that and morphed into Grandpa Granola Rock, or metal/prog rock’s answer to Dan Fogelburg.

          • not when said person enjoys power trips that much

          • I blame Steven Wilson.

            I like him, but he’s a very bad influence as a friend. He is always so serious and that, is like there’s a ghost farting around him and he’s always trying to find who farted.

          • I guess I don’t follow Opeth enough to understand many of these comments.

          • Rob M

            Dude from Porcupine Tree..He’s also a big prog rock producer

          • good call Link. i miss old PT so much

          • Ugh, you’re right. I miss PT too. But you can always have Metallica.

          • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God

            Never could get into PT, but they were good when I saw them live.

          • Sir Tapir The Based

            Wilson’s solo stuff is much better.

          • you have many MANY points on my book. losing a few won’t knock you down.

          • brokensnow

            Im happy everyone caught up with this finally.

          • King Shit of Fuck Mountain

            Bound to happen, I suppose.

        • progression is truly in the eye of the beholder.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        True. Still, I would be a bit disappointed if they’d ditch ALL of the heaviness in their sound. I still think Opeth’s move towards full on prog rock is a major failure. I know a lot of people have been able to make the step to appreciate new Opeth, but I just can’t. Not with their old style still in mind and remembering how much I loved it.

        • Stanley

          There are a couple of songs of DEK, e.g. Hypnone and Ambitions, that are some of my favorite Katatonia songs. Pretty amazing that a band still resonates with me that strongly, god knows how many albums into their existence.

          • Stanley

            You can also add The Parting, The Racing Heart and Lethean to the list. Great record.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I liked DEK. In fact, I’ve liked all of Katatonia’s albums up to now. Brave Murder Day might still be my favorite, but I think Katatonia’s switch to their “new” style with Renkse’s comatose vocals (which probably is the only style casual listeners know them for) was a very succesful one.

          • Stanley

            I don’t know about his vocals being comatose (maybe to some listeners). I think he has a beautiful, melancholic voice.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            Oh yeah, absolutely. I don’t mean “comatose” in a bad way. Rather than I find they have some hypnotic quality to them.

    • I think that both bands went to make the music they wanted to do. The thing is that the periods of Katatonia are very encapsulated with each album and Opeth went full from Watershed to Heritage to Pale Communion.

      I like Pale Communion, but as a whole is not a great record because it wanders too much on the long passages ideas. Is better than Heritage, but it have too much filler moments (except for Eternal Rains Will Come, I love that song).

      Compared with Katatonia, Opeth embraced the proggresive sound from a foreign influence (Goblin, King Crimson, Zappa…) and that’s why I think is not cohesive with their overall catalogue. I am no way dishing Opeth and Akerfeldt’s last work, I think is cool, but it doesn’t have at all the whole baggage of elements that Opeth always had in the records (somber, dark, melancholic and brooding moments). Katatonia always delivered the sentiments they wanted and used the new influences with each album to pair it with the lyrical and aesthetical content.

      • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

        I just can’t love the new Opeth. Not that I dislike prog rock. Far from it. But there are so many other bands already that have been involved with that genre and did it way better than Opeth is doing right now. Pale Communion was better than heritage, but still felt uninteresting to me. I don’t know, it just doesn’t feel like Opeth to me.

        • I understand you!

          I liked Pale Communion, I even included it on my personal list of 2014, but I can understand your feelings. I just disassociated it from the Opeth name, because the first two songs were good sounding to me. In fact, Eternal Rains Will Come is probably the most melancholic song of the album 😛

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            I think I wouldn’t have had much of a problem with it if they would’ve released their new stuff under a different banner. “Mikael Akerfeldt Solo” or something like that haha!

          • Miguel Akerfeldt y sus amigos, jajaja!

          • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God

            Or better yet, not release it at all.

          • FrankWhiteKingOfNY

            That would be the desired option for my ears.

    • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God

      I doubt it’s self confidence as much as it is yet another overzealous press sheet/A&R person at the label.

  • Rob M

    After 20 damn years…please be good, please be good

    This tune is growing on me. Record’s out on April 8th.

    • Damn! Dis drummer is my kind of drummer. Sick track so far!

      You are bringing it home today duder.

      • DVRKBEVRD

        whoa. agreed. this song is tight. it almost lost me until the vocals came in

      • Stanley

        Drums are the highlight for sure. Followed by the riffs. The vocals are a little loud for me but I’m getting used to.

        • Yeah, this is fucking great! I’ll be jamming this track the whole rest of the day now. Do they have any shit prior to this?

          • Stanley

            I think this is the first “single” that they have ever released. They are playing in Oakland on April 14th.

          • I’ve seen their logo on some festival posters and what not, but never looked em up. It was bound to happen eventually. Thanks again.

          • Stanley

            Ha ha. You’ve made me spend enough money!

          • Stanley

      • Stanley

        I feel like the year started off slowly for (my kind of) black metal, but things are starting to perk up!

        • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

          How would you describe your kind of black metal? I’m not asking for you to write a 1000 word essay or anything, I’m just curious.

          • Stanley

            1) Orthodox
            2) Songs
            3) Riffs
            4) Drums
            5) Feels

            I’m not too into the dissonant stuff unless it actually adds something to number 2.

            I also like some war metal as long as it has 2 and 3 and not just a wall of noise.

          • Yeah, you are not much into the harsher sounding shit.

          • Rob M

            …but thats where all the good stuff is

          • Indeed.

          • Stanley

            Probably.

          • Rob M

            …this is what Im saying

          • Fuck yes. Still on the hunt for the split they did with Goatpenis. Their comp album is available from Hells Headbangers again if you are interested. New album in the works for this year. I guess they are just waiting on Antichrist Kramer to finish up the artwork.

            Vetala is rad too.

            I may have to jump on that comp…I havent given Nyogthaeblisz as much attention as I should

            Vetala is awesome!

          • Yeah, looking forward to catching them on tour with Nexul and Hellvetron. They are playing in Baltimore. That comp is choice! Get on that man.

            Have they announced the venue yet?

          • Rob M

            Nice…I’ll have to keep an eye on that thread. DC Heavy metal hasnt even mentioned it yet

          • I believe sometime in July this is taken place.

            Cool…that should be enough time for my knees, liver and wallet to have recovered from MDF

          • Stanley

            See, I can do a few songs of this, but a whole album is tiring. It’s fucking mental.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            i feels that same feel. that Skaphe is my limit, really

          • Stanley

            Skaphe is beyond my limit. I prefer this to Skaphe because of number 2.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            understandable, but at least they will pull back out of that cacophany and hit a melodious groove. those transitions are what makes each part so appealing. stuff like the above is just non-stop

          • Skaphe is just weird.

          • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God
          • See, I crave this shit. The more the better.

          • Rob M

            I enjoy the hell out of this style, but depending on my mood, I’ll have to vary it up after awhile…it can be a bit intense after long periods

          • Yeah, it’s all about mood. Sometimes I need the melodies of Dissection and sometimes I need the harsh blasphemous sounds of Nuclearhammer.

          • Rob M

            Agreed..joking aside, Ive got no issue with melody. Sometimes you just need to kick back with something a little easier to process

          • Yeah, I hear ya man. No problems with melody either. Mgla is full up of them. Most of the time if it’s evil and involves Satan I’m going to like it. Hahaha

          • Rob M

            Exactly!

          • sweetooth0

            People often confuse melody with pussification. You can have a totally evil as fuck melody, it doesn’t mean you have to make your band sound like weak ass “insert genera-melo death band here”.

          • Well put. Hey, by the way I found Effortless Regurgitation Of Bright Red Blood / Concrete Human Torture on vinyl. Just shipped today!

          • sweetooth0

            NICE! It’s an awesome vinyl package. Cool etched side D too. I think it has a 7incher in there too.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I can relate, I enjoy most of his recommendations.

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            Right on man, thanks for the reply!

          • DVRKBEVRD

            feels at 5!?

          • Stanley

            Ok.

            2) Song feels
            3) Riff feels
            4) Drum feels

          • DVRKBEVRD

            thats better.

          • brokensnow

            …..its “black”…..

          • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

            I have been defeated, i submit my complete and total surrender.

          • If I Was A Carrot I’d Be God
        • These guys are not even in M.A. yet.

          • Stanley

            Probably not metal enough.

          • True, these guys are pretty dang light.

          • DVRKBEVRD

            goddamn thats saying something

          • THEY ARE EVEN MORE UNDERGROUND THAN THE MOST UNDERGROUND-UNDERGROUND METAL BAND.

            -IGN

    • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

      This is good.

    • This good.

    • Boss the “Hoss” Ross

      I can dig it

    • ok serious question here. are these guys aping Mgla or are my ears just untrained to this type of music?

      • They are really, raping Mgla.

      • this is better than Mgla, imho. but I am a maxposer/10.

        • i am too. and the more i think about it, the more absurd my question actually was. some bands just sound like some others.

        • DVRKBEVRD

          poser alert

      • Stanley

        There are some similarities. 🙂

        • I feel like the guitars are a bit more interesting than Mgla’s. Having gone back just now, they do sound similar but unique enough to be thoroughly enjoyed in either setting. Thanks Stan.

        • it was… a silly question in the end. good song though! it’s getting a second spin

      • Sir Tapir The Based

        Your ears are untrained to all types of music.

    • Damn this is great. The guitar work is most excellent. Fast, fun, heavy, and dark. Boom

    • CT-12

      Was gonna see these guys with Absu and a bunch of other killer bands, but it falls on the same day as Maiden. 🙁

      • Stanley

        Ah, well. It’s a shame you’ll miss Maiden. 🙂

        • CT-12

          Hahaha, clever man, but yeah, hell nah. Maiden<<<<<<<<<<<<<everything

  • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

    I likes me sum Katatonia

    • Pentagram Sam

      One of my friends who has a wiiiiiide taste in music, (black, electronic, punk, crust, power, grind, *and introduced me to the mightiness of synthwave*) played the shit outta Viva Emptiness when it came out. Lots of cruising to this one. Not familiar with a ton of Katatonia, but caught them when Scar Symmetry opened for em in San Antone aka Saxontonio. Sucked there were less than thirty people there but I had a blast!

      • Matt Pike’s Sweaty Left Nipple

        I’ve seen Katatonia twice, both times in Ft. Worth. They’re fantastic live, even got to hang out with Jonas Renske and their former drummer for a little bit after the 2nd show. Jonas is super-nice in person. Very soft-spoken, almost shy (imagine that, haha).

      *readies paddle

    • this is fucking great, and absolutely a Toilet band.

    • Rob M

      I guess even a blind dog can find a nut twice a day

      • Jimmy McNulty was seriously wounded, but the soul still burns

        • Rob M

          Hahaha…Im actually very aware of No Clean Singing…youve probably seen my flaming middle finger avatar on many comments over there =D

          …awesome band though

          • 365ChaosRiddenDays

            Surgical Brute? yes, I’ve seen many of your comments indeed at NCS but I was totally unaware until now!

          • Rob M

            …nice to meet you…again

      • CyberneticOrganism

        Even a blind day can nut a dog twice a find.

  • Waynecro

    I like In Mourning. That Piss Vortex song is awesome, and I’m jazzed up about the new Aborted. Also, WORMED!!!
