    I really can take any change. I even applaud BIG changes. For example an album full of Unfurl kind of stuff. As long as it is put together nicely and it isn't the same song over and over.
    I'm not saying it's likely that this is going to happen, but I'm saying that I like it when a band dares to take a (big) turn in their music to keep it original. It can't go wrong as long as it is a heartfelt turn, and Katatonia are really writing heartfelt music, so that'll be alright ;)

    I agree with Vincent. How about a cvlt experimental mellow/ambient album that noone will know where it came from and where it will go? No past and no future, just a mysterious 5-6-tracked EP, in their discographys middle of nowhere with controversal criticisms and only few comments about it from the band. And one year later another full release TGCD style (heavier easier and mainstream-ier).

    I think Steven Wilson does great work. SW producing a Katatonia album would be quite awesome, but I'm sure it'd be awesome anyways, though him being the producer might just be a bonus. Either way I can't wait.

    As for him producing a Tool album I'd like to see that too since I'm a huge Tool fan but I don't see it happening either.

    I've never seen the point in Tool (well, my GF got me into Vicarious but that's the only song really) and Wilson probably couldn't change that.

    I don't care who produces katas next effort, I just want it :rofl:

    Vicarious is almost the definition of Tool stylewise. So you should very well be able to enjoy most of their stuff.

    With Wilson or not, I think Katatonia always knew and did what they want to do. So I'm sure that Katatonia will do more dynamic, melancholic, depressive album and will catch perfect sound. Since they had started to journey, every album had original elements and unique sound. I believe that next release will be so good and I will say "My mouth is shut, stupidity have shut my mouth" :)

    I just hope they enter the studio sometime this year, that way we know the new record will be out in the first half of next year. I will be a very happy man if that turns out to be true.

    It's terrible, but at the same time I know it's going to be the single most jaw dropping piece of music since TGCD

    I can't wait any longer for new Kat material! Steven Wilson is going to take them to another level.

    Would be nice to have his participation officially confirmed (or denied..) by now.

    Denying Steven Wilson is probably a dumb thing to do. :loco:

    Hopefully soon they'll spill the word.

    Exactly. That was my whole problem with him producing Opeth albums too. They just didn't need him to do a good job. Still Life totally proved that. The albums they did with Steven wound up sounding more like Opeth mixed with Porcupine Tree than just Opeth. When Ghost Reveries came out, they finally sounded like just Opeth again, which I was very thankful for.

    I *really* hope he doesn't do the same thing to Katatonia...especially after how incredibly awesome The Great Cold Distance turned out.

    Man, the years go by and everyday it's clearer to me that TGCD is the ultimate Katatonia album. Fucking greatness.

    After surprising the fans so much with destroying album after destroying album, i doubt that Katatonia will disappoint on the next one.

    I'm sure the album will kick tush regardless of Steven Wilson's presence of absence. That said, I'd rather he not get involved.
