Saarang’s Professional Shows are back. Kicking off the releases is the Rock Show 2017. Previous editions have seen crowds of over 6000 rocked by the likes of Opeth, Karnivool and Parikrama. And now...all the way from Sweden, presenting to you Katatonia!
The band’s story began in earnest 25 years ago when Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström first joined forces to explore the limitless possibilities of the then burgeoning doom and death metal scenes. Bands like Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride were standard bearers for British melancholy, but Peaceville label mates Katatonia swiftly established themselves as Sweden’s idiosyncratic equivalent, releasing their debut album Dance Of December Souls at the end of 1993 and receiving immediate acclaim within the metal underground. With a sound that was both familiar and startlingly fresh, Katatonia’s early works exhibited plenty of the elegance and subtlety that would later typify the band’s work.
Fast-forward to 2016 and the band are poised to release what may well prove to be their most affecting and powerful album to date. The Fall of Hearts is Katatonia’s tenth studio album; a remarkable achievement in itself, but the sheer quality and consistency of the band’s #music
remains their most striking trait.
