The Fall Of Hearts
MID-PRICE CD EDITION OF THE 2016 HIT ALBUM FROM SWEDISH LEGENDS
"The Fall of Hearts is an absolute jewel from start to finish" - Decibel Magazine (USA)
Katatonia released their most popular album to date, "The Fall of Hearts" in 2016 to chart and media success; reaching #1 in the USA Heatseekers and #5 in the USA Hard Rock charts, #2 in Sweden's Hard Rock chart, #3 in Canada's Hard Rock chart, #4 in the UK's Rock and Metal chart, #6 in Finland, #11 in Germany and saw success in Australia with their first ever chart entry.
Katatonia have worked tirelessly touring the world since 2012's "Dead End Kings", as well as expanding their fanbase through two albums on Kscope, Peaceville's sister label. 2013 saw the release of "Dethroned and Uncrowned", which exploded the core of the songs on "Dead End Kings" creating new moods and textures. Both releases illustrate the band's journey toward "The Fall of Hearts", which features a more progressive sound, a sound which provoked The Guardian to refer to the band as "bridging of the gap between metal and modern prog."
"The Fall of Hearts" was the first record to feature new drummer Daniel 'Mojjo' Moilanen with the addition of their recently recruited guitarist Roger Öjersson (Tiamat), who sprinkled some blistering solos on the album. With this release, Katatonia continued to push their musical boundaries beyond the metal scene whilst drawing in new fans from across the musical spectrum, putting them on par with peers such as Opeth and Anathema, cementing their place as one of the most revered and cherished bands in modern heavy music.
The dramatic yet desolate artwork was created by long-time designer and illustrator Travis Smith. This mid-price CD edition of "The Fall of Hearts" is presented in digipack packaging complete with a 16-page booklet.
