So.. apparently they are gonna build their own studio. Tired of the smelly Ghost Ward already?

Just letting you guys know we've made it back home and safely returned to Sweden. A fantastic feeling to be reunited with our families and proud of what we achieved and left behind. This tour was one of the longest we've ever done, but also one of the very best! Thanks once again!
Next up on the agenda will be fighting a malicious jet lag, rebuilding our new practice place into a HQ for the writing/recording of our next album and preparing the last 20th anniversary shows for Scandinavia next month. Keepin' it busy!

i also hope they go back to more simple rock structure: drum/bass/guitar/vox

NITND was amazing but great cold was better and their best imo

also they are getting old now? anders and jonas like mid 30's right? one day they will have to call it quits and i think this might be their last

If the synths would be written by the guys yes please I want more. If they are written by Frank Default, no thanks. He is a great musician and he has very cool ideas but I think his style somehow does not fit Katatonia's music. I would be happy if the big fat choruses back. Also a slight change in the style and the sound might be refreshing. I need to be surprised this time. Whatever they do I'm sure it will be better than most of the bands that are out there...

Frank's music blends indescribably well with Katatonia's. I hope he writes every backtrack from now on, he is a musical genius!

This.

But why to argue? There are going to be heavy and mellow songs. So everybody'll be happy.

Totally agree!

Talking about solo projects... I would FREAKENLY like to listen JONAS RENKSE's solo project with songs like This Punishment, Nightmares by the sea, We must bury you, Passing bird, O how I enjoy the light, Help me disappear, you know... such strange melodies)))

Very odd that you picked some of their most underwhelming material (at least to me) for choices. Apart from possibly 'Passing Bird' I can't say any of the other songs you named would make it onto my "Top 50 Katatonia Songs" list (and thats even completetely disregarding their DODS/BMD era). For a Jonas solo album, I would rather see him take either a more lighter (perhaps even acoustic/piano) path along the lines of 'Idle Blood' and 'A Darkness Coming' or else material along the lines of 'Unfurl', 'Sold Heart', 'Departer' and 'Inheritance'. But that's just me. For the new Katatonia album, I definitely want more brooding/distorted guitars.

I used to skip these tracks when I was metalhead=))) But since I have become lover of music in general, I changed my point of view. Songs I mentioned are like Katatonia steps on a foreign territory. I listen to artists, that are favorite to Jonas - like Jeff Buckley or Will Oldham(Palace music) and I find myself thinking I'd love to listen to Jonas in non-metal psychodelic flanger-guitar-oriented genre=)

Hm. Niklas Sundin said that new album is the mix of TGCD and NITND. Checkout video on Katatonia's Failbook.

These days record labels are on a tighter budget because albums aren’t selling as well as they did in the past.
Yeah, and Roadrunner closure... Soon everything will change.

THE GATHERING Singer To Guest On New KATATONIA Album

Norwegian singer Silje Wergeland, who has been fronting Dutch rockers THE GATHERING since early 2009, has recorded a duet with KATATONIA's Jonas Renske for the Swedish dark rockers' new album, tentatively due in September via Peaceville Records. KATATONIA describes the collaboration as "a beautiful fit in every way."

I will admit, I have never understood the love for Anneke that so many people give. I think so many other female vocalists out there blow her out of the water. =o/ She didn't do much for me when she was in The Gathering and even less when she went solo. I don't know....

I am very excited to hear about Silje doing guest vocals with Jonas on the new album. While I did like her better in the band Octavia Sperati, I also thought she helped improve The Gathering when she came onboard. My top choice for a female vocalist with Jonas would still have been Marjan Welman from Autumn, but I still can't wait to hear both of their voices together!

Female vox in Katatonia... i dislike the idea itself... but let's see what it gonna sound like=)))

What about Anneke, she is cute and siniging good, but I'm personally a fan of The Gathering music rather then fan of Anneke. Her voice fits great the music on "How To Measure A Planet?" for example=)
