    I recently added Katatonia's classic logo to the new album's cover seeing as how some seemed disappointed with the new, simple "text" approach (which I myself REALLY like - seems fitting to their rocking and chillin sound.)


    Anyway, you decide which you prefer - it'd probably end up looking close to this...

    I'll still go with the one that they went with (simple approach.) It's different and I like the layout.

    Haha Erik, that old logo would totally not fit, not grim enough album kover. But yeah, I wouldn't mind having the new logo there, it's cool.

    I think this one works better without the logo.

    with logo it does not look like a pop/alternative album and white logo suits fine..

    I think it should be on there, but consideration as to the size might be a good idea. I mean, maybe a good blend would to have the "new" Katatonia logo very small on the cover, but still there.

    Old logo (not with pentagram :p) fits very well in this picture... hmmm "undecided" because the new simple logo is cool too and I like it :)

    i think this cover is better without, because the logo draws too much attention and disturbs the atmosphere of the cover, very simple, dramatic and essential..
    the logo is too much "baroque" for this cover and concet, yet I love the kata logo and it feels kind of naked without it...so I don´t know...hope however it won´t disappear in the future...

    yah they probably should have left the old (not oldest) logo on there.

    I chose undecided, but I would lean towards the old. Maybe change the colour a little bit, and it would probably be very nice.

    I think it looks better with the logo. It looks traditional.

    It looks better the way it is... putting the old logo in there looks off somehow. Many bands have done this before and gone back to their logo on their next album. (Didn't Amorphis and In Flames do this?) It's fine with me. I still have the logo window sticker on my car.

    Get rid of the drop shadow and decrease the opacity a bit and I think it'd look better
