Fortunately, one Katatonia tradition that endures here is that their bonus tracks really are bonuses. Find out more about page archiving. In part that’s because there tends to be less fannying around with big international record labels. However, this is a slow-burner and something tells me that Dead End Kings will continue to grow on me. Corpsey the Clown , September 23rd, Little did I know it actually only gets better from here.

Led Zeppelin was rock and roll. After so many attempts, you will find you have broken through the surface, and as you come to know the songs more instinctively and intrinsically, you will come to appreciate the immense quality in both the structuring and subtlety exponentially.
However, tracks 6, katatonnia and 8 are all disappointingly lackluster. The rut is snapped, however, with track 9 “Lethean”.
Album Review: Katatonia – Dead End Kings / Releases / Releases // Drowned In Sound
This album is difficult to categorize, genre-wise. There is no groundbreaking evolution here – Katatonia continues their shift towards less heavy music.
Maybe it was Fredrik and Mattias Norrman’s departure, the awkward track listing, their exhaustive touring schedule or the band broadening its style so much that they’ve spread themselves too thin. However, this is a slow-burner and something tells me that Dead End Kings will continue to grow on me. Second is a short but very sweet number, pulling off a distressed chorus that kafatonia not seem forced, and The Act of Darkening is an elegantly haunting ballad that conjures Porcupine Tree in its soulful, unhurried pacing.
Dead End Kings expands on the ideas started there, giving even more room to keyboards and synths to create atmosphere especially piano has more to say here, which is something I kztatonia very muchand it looks like there will be no more furious pieces like Ghost katatonis The Sun or Consternation.
This album is a bit different story. It’s also worth noting that there are more guitar solos on this album, and pretty much every single one of them is great, particularly the ones in Hypnone and Lethean.
They keyboard work on this album is excellent and really what completes this album and helps create the atmosphere. Here Katatonia are, at album nine.
However, that’s not to say that this album isn’t original, because I’ve never fnd anything quite like it. Metallica, at least until the mid’s, was heavy metal.
With this album, I feel like they have finally carved a niche for themselves and yes, matched or surpassed their more popular Swedish friends. Katatonia’s lings has always eluded simple definitions. Something of their former consistency is missing here.
This is not something I can say about “Dead End Kings.
The songs sort of skip over each other, going back and forth from an overly depressing ballad-style to somewhat Tool-inspired, heavier and melancholic riff-heavy songs. Sonic Youth – Nurse. These first three tracks are the best on the album, in my opinion. Lethean’s chorus in particular is heartbreaking, though I’d be hard pressed to leave any of them off a playlist of Katatonia’s strongest tracks. My expectations were blown away with a very moody, clean-sounding, brilliant performance by the kings of sadness themselves, Katatonia.
Overall, Dead End Kings is an album that grows on you with repeated listens and feautures several Grade-A Katatonia songs.

Corpsey the ClownSeptember 23rd, The Racing Heart is katatoia grimly determined anthem in the vein of Day and Then the Shade that has carried me through more than one bad day at work. It’s subtle and far less aggressive than most other Katatonia albums, and yet has a huge emotional intensity.
It’s more of the same of what Katatonia’s been doing for awhile now: To my ears, “Night” felt like the destination of all the subtle twists and turns in the musical trail they had blazed for nearly two decades.
I have no idea what’s responsible for this change. Secondly death metal is a well-documented lifestyle over mere entertainment. Hypnone and The Racing Heart blend into each other like lovers, with hints of aggression iings through the bright, cold guitar lines and unforgettable choruses.
