Discouraged Ones (Gatefold Sleeve)
"Discouraged Ones" was recorded in 1997 at the infamous Sunlight Studios by Fred Estby and Tomas Skogsberg (Entombed, Dismember). The album saw a new direction change with the epic compositions of old replaced with stripped down, compact structures to make room for new vocal harmonies courtesy of Jonas Renkse (who also played drums on the album), putting an end to the growling vocal style from prior releases and giving the band a broader appeal.
This was somewhat of a breakthrough album for Katatonia which undoubtedly planted the seeds, stylistically, of what the band evolved into & represent today. 'Discouraged Ones' is a pinnacle of dark, gothic rock/metal excellence combined with ethereal, trance-like intensity.
This edition of 'Discouraged Ones' is presented on double black vinyl with gatefold sleeve, & includes the bonus tracks, 'Quiet World' (from the 'Discouraged Ones' recording session) and 'Scarlet Heavens', a rare track from 1994.
