Not sure if it was done before but, I was just talking to a friend about ol' days and remembered how I came across Katatonia. I borrowed 3 cassette tapes from a guy back in '97 and those were Dance Of December Souls, Brave Murder Day, and Discouraged Ones. He recommended them as black metal and a "weird disappointing" change in style on the last album, back then being Discouraged Ones. These were bootleg tapes, mind you. I told him he got screwed and that Discouraged Ones album is a totally different band with a Katatonia logo xeroxed on the cover. It couldn't be the same band. The difference was mind boggling. He said "maybe it's that October Tide project, I know one of them is involved". Anyway, I remember being confused by DO because i really loved it and I was only into extreme stuff up to then. Quite an eye opener for me. One of those albums that makes you more receptive to mixed/weird styles of metal and/or music in general.
