Hey guys and girls, I wanted to create a fun little thread where we can talk about our listening experiences of Katatonia's new album. I think it would be great to discuss specific parts of the songs, so we can call our attention to the little brilliant details that this album is filled with. Did you discover a little guitar melodie in the background that made the listening experience a lot better? Do you hear lyrical references or other cools things? You can list them here, so we can enjoy this cd and see if we can enhance each others listening experience. I'll start: Onward Into Battle: Anyone noticed something different in the last chorus? Check it out from 3:03 on until the end. They added a synth-like guitarmelodie in the background that I only discovered today or yesterday. Makes it a lot better. Also... The drumfill beginning at 1:00 is just pure class. Idle Blood: After the drums and everything kick in there's this "orchestral" sound that flows with the music. I love how it swells at 0:44 for example. It creates this great tension that leads to the magnificant release of the chorus Nephilim: During the drumfill before the chorus. I love the slide in the bassguitar that Mattias plays at 3:17 New Night: As someone already noticed, the piano thing that was on the site comes from this song. Inheritance: Besides the "obvious" classical beauty here I think Jonas' voice sounds amazing here. On the entire album his vocals sound better than ever, but especially in the chorus of this song (where he sings pretty low notes) his voice almost sounds like fire Day and then the Shade: How the dark background noise rises, foreseeing the heartbreaking chorus, and how the guitar arpeggio's take a dramatic turn just before the heartbeak occurs. Also it's really too strong for words when then the verse starts again. It's very "consoling". Departer: Ummmm, how about everything? The intro ambience is lovely. When Jonas starts singing it's breathtaking. When the drums kick in and the "theme" starts it's so very emotional, relaxing and comforting... the guest vocals are very, very good. It sounds like Krister sings with all his heart. Very stylish too. The drumfill at 3:12 is one of my favorites on this album by Daniel. Some obvious parts: In the Promise of Deceit I LOVE the part from 0:48 on. The Day and then the Shade verse. Departer in its fullness. I was first disappointed that it didn't have much change, but now I see it's a million times better like this.
