    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.

    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! :D
    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.

    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. :D
