Katatonia are a well known Swedish metal band that I guess could come under numerous categories like doom metal, progressive, death metal even. My sister got me into this band, I picked up several of their albums recently such as Brave Murder Day, Night Is The New Day, Last Fair Deal Gone Down. I enjoy the albums with the harsher vocals most but I love the cleaner vocal records too. Definitely a band I would recommend to people who want to go a bit out there with extreme music.

Albums
Dance of December Souls (1993)


Brave Murder Day (1996)


Discouraged Ones (1998)


Tonight's Decision (1999)


Last Fair Deal Gone Down (2001)


Viva Emptiness (2003)


The Great Cold Distance (2006)


Night Is the New Day (2009)


Dead End Kings (2012)


The Fall of Hearts (2016)

I'm really glad you brought these guys up Riff Raff, I have been seeing them around for some time but haven't had a chance to listen to them (or forgotten to lol).

What do you prefer the more screaming vocals or the more mellow stuff?

Both are equally great to me!
I would love to listen to their entire discography to hear them change from a more death/doom sound in their early work to their more alternate metal sound in their later work!!

I wouldn't mind getting their entire discography myself, my sisters a big fan of the band, been to several concerts, I dread not going last year, as I also found out Megadeth were touring with them.

Really love the Night Is The New Day Album.
In fact it is blasphemy this thread doesn't have any other fans of the band.
Couple of great stand out songs.
Liberation.

Katatonia to release a new studio album this year I read somewhere. Awesome stuff, another 2012 release to be excited for.

Dead End Kings the name of the new album to come out in August.

I picked up The Great Cold Distance, it has the most melodic moments of most albums but they do it so well. Absolutely brilliant mix of melody, brutal riffing. I really love this band and cannot wait for Dead End Kings which reminds me here is Dead Letters the new track.
