I'm not saying its bad at all, for me though it's the only Kata album I just can't get into. TGCD and it's b-sides is stellar so I've got high hopes for new Katatonia.

Hello! I'm new here...

I would like to hear some songs similar to unfurl, and I like the sound on TGCD so if the new album would have same kind of production etc., I would be pleased. On the contrary it would be cool to hear some screams/growls by Nyström or even Renkse (I've heard some rumours). Also there could be more "heavier" parts like for example in July or Leaders. I don't want them to make Anathema on us!

Rumours actually based on something?

I've seen a lot of weird "logical" guessing on this forum that the Renkse-screams would return.

IMO it's bullshit.
As far as I know the "rumors" are based on Katatonia playing an old unclean song every set and the one growl mr. Renkse did for Ayreon's new album.
So it's not based on a statement by the band or a member or anything near official info at all.
I'm no representative of the band or anything, but I guess they do that just to please the old doom-metal-kinda-stuff-fans.
Cause obviously there's a lot of people really liking that stuff.
But I can't imagine them playing those songs as hint like: ooh we're doing this as a preview to the new album that'll be trve old black metal.
So I'd say, don't get your hopes up too high

You don't sound like a fan of DODS...poor you.

But yeah, they won't do it, so just sit back and wait for the album. Chew some skin or beat some bushes while you wait.

I can see them using some growls on the album but not as a main vocal style, just some background stuff or maby a sentance here and there.

I see no growls in the next album.

Would growls be progression?

Id like the new Katatonia album to sound something like, Lost to the living by Daylight Dies, or Hope by Swallow the sun.

I.E. a balance of heavy and tranquil, and brutal growls and singing, also, as a side note, Id like to thank Daylight Dies and Swallow the sun, for making such amazing music, and helping to tide me over til the next Katatonia or My Dying Bride albums

Doesn't it seem like a lot of bands are going that direction any more?


Plus, Katatonia aren't Doom/Death are they?

they arent, but ive always thought to myself, if katatonia kept going the way they were going with dance of december souls etc, they would probably sound like daylight dies or swallow the sun these days.
which is never a bad thing....
i also really love Jonas guest vocals on swallow the suns recent album, he's lending his voice out alot recently :-D

So basically you would like Katatonia to quit beeing Katatonia.

Daylight Dies and Swallow The Sun have absolutely nothing on Katatonia. Never compare those bands to one of the greatest living bands of our era.

Believe it.

I'd like the new album not sound like Hope. IMO Jonas is the only good thing on that album.

Definitely. His vocal melody on that song is godly. Should have saved it for Katatonia hah

It would be progression if mixed with the modern heavy style of TGCD. As long as they don't go for a stupid mainstream metal mix of clean and growl it would be cool. Still don't see it happening though.

Yeah, I guess that makes sense.


I just don't see how it would fit...

I guess it might be able to work...

any way, I'm done guessing.

Possibly a year ago, I thought that it was time for Katatonia to include some death vox. Now, I almost do not want them to because Jonas' cleans are so stunning. As my pet Stefan said earlier though, if they did a nice mix, it could be good, just as long as it is not too much. What I mean by that is not use it that much.

doom-death album?please NO!
daylight dies-swallow the sun?i like both but in comparison with katatonia they are very poor...

i think katatonia are like anathema...they sound much better with clean vocals.i'm not only a metal fan so i don't care if they choose to release a depressive rock album again...

ps:btw i'm sure that daylight dies will be more "soft" in the future.

DODS has aged well. One of the finest pieces of doom/black/death ever! If you want something similar...fuck that! You won't find it...just put that on repeat.
