Hey A few months ago I picked up Viva Emptiness and I quite liked it. Being new to Katatonia I decided to download some other songs by them. Personally the older songs in the style of Saw You Drown and Quiet World really appeal to me. They're so depressing and sad! After a bit I got even older stuff, songs off Dance Of December Souls and For Funerals To Come. Once again I was blown away by the emotion shown in the singing and instrument work. Typing this I've just got Instrumental and listening to it for the first time...love that guitar solo at the end. These guys are masters at playing sad, doomy music. How many other people prefer their older stuff to the new? By the way...if by some chance if this gets read by the band...come to New Zealand to do a show! ...Or at least Australia!
