Description

Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nystrom and Jonas Renkse. Their debut album, Dance of December Souls, was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal and joining acts such as Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride as one of the genre's defining bands. On future albums a newer, sleeker Katatonia sound came to the fore, starting with a streamlined and structured collection of melodic dark rock songs that became third album Discouraged Ones which is widely regarded as the main evolution point for modern day Katatonia. On vinyl for the first time, Katatonia's classic 1997 EP Sounds of Decay was recorded at Stockhom's Sunlight Studios and featured Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt on vocals. Sounds of Decay was seen as a perfect companion piece to the band's sublime 1996 breakthrough album, Brave Murder Day (a masterpiece of hypnotic, melodic Doom Metal melancholy). The EP is presented on 10" 100gm vinyl, includes the bonus track Untrue, and new liner notes from guitarist/founder member Anders Nystrom.
