    Jesterday i was looking at a gig of Katatonia - 1996 - Geleen - Holland.
    I was wondering, Who is doing vocalduties?
    Probably a stupid question, but i couldn't find the right face with the vocalist...

    Can someone enlight me?

    Thanks.

    Hmm... Is it a very simple question or do I not understand it? Cause my answer would be Jonas and Anders.

    Actually it could have been Micke. I could be totally wrong though. Im not sure if they used him just as a session singer or if they used him live as well. Micke is the singer for Opeth if you didnt know. :)

    Aha, I missed the date, 1996, well... that's probably Mick Åkerfeldt.

    I thought Anders once said Micke never went on tour with them. I could be dead-wrong on this. and mixed up the dates of tours or something.

    If it's not Jonas, then it has to be Micke, at that point. Maybe Anders found his growl there...

    According to a bootleg video i have from 11/96 Anders says, "Our vocalist has lost his voice and is on his way back home." Anders is singing on the video.

    I guess Anders does both vocals and guitars.

    the link is ftp://katatonia.mine.nu and it works only when the owner (Hobo from this forum) is online.
    i have some bootlegs from this ftp server (three gigs from '96 i think) and was pretty confused when watched them for the first time, was wondering the same mainly because of the poor quality. but, yes, it's Anders doing the vocal and guitar duties during this tour, it's completely unreal, really, he's a damn gifted freak o_O .
    Jonas - drums
    Fred - guitar
    Mike Oretoft (not really sure) - bass

    yes, i know.
    the vocal parts on the first Katatonia albums are thouroughly different than on DO and the following pieces, i mean not that 'complicated' and exacting structered, therefore maybe not that difficult the take both lines at the same time - guitar and singing.
    for all that, my compliments!

    Yeah, it's kinda hard. Not every man has that ability.
    But check out Micke Åkerfeldt in opeth. He does extremely hard guitars(tight) and good vocals, live. That's fascinating.
    Also Abbath in Immortal... really good.

    sure, i respect Micke's talent for years now :cool:
    have seen him live on stage and it's great, no false note during the whole set while growling unearthly.

    But, my question remains, If Anders is doing vocal duties, who is handeling the guitar? It's only,
    1 voc.
    2 guitar
    1 bas
    1 drums.
