"Inheritance..." The New Classic

'The new classic' could be used for almost ANY of the songs on NIGHT IS THE NEW DAY, but I find this one to be the song that I can play a friend of mine who's never heard of Katatonia and say 'THIS is Katatonia.'

An instant classic, in my opinion.

It is a fantastic song, probably my favorite from the cd. I LOVE Jonas' voice on the song sooooooooooooo much.

I agree. This song has really grown on me over time. A very brooding type atmosphere but his voice fits perfectly with it. I love the "let them inherit, this fire now. lest they will forget that we were ever here" lines. His voice gives me chills on those lines.

To me, inheritance is easily the best song on the album, and saying that the songs past 6 is absurd (nephilim? new night? ashen? OMFG?)

anyway, this instills that Night is the new Day for me is their 2nd best, closely behind Last Fair Deal Gone Down. Nothing like NITND from what i've heard, amazingness all the way through. unbelievable.

It's a huuuge grower. One of my least favs in the start, and now a definite top 5.

It does take time.... but sits nicely alongside the best in my view, not quite a TGCD beater, I think the input from Jens on that album gave it something but NITND is still a fantastic album and very involving.

Possibly Jonas' finest singing on the album.

My fave song on NitND. Absolutely beatiful song with great lyrics. I especially love the guitar lead parts.

If it happens that I skip songs on NitND it is Inheritance and Nephilim. Can't explain why exactly, maybe they didn't grow on me enough yet. The Longest Year, Liberation, New Night and Departer are my favourites so far.

The songs I usually end up skipping are Liberation and New Night for some reason. I love both songs, though.

The correct answer was "maybe." Denial says you're quite mad my friend.
