What's your name and where do you come from? [/B ]Torgny, Norway What's your age? [/B ]30 What's the type of music you mostly listen too? Metal, Electronic, alternative singysongwriter, prog/rock and just plain pop/rock, synthpop.. EVERYTHING really...but this is what is played the most. So you are a Katatonia nerd, thats why your here, correct? I'm more of a geek I think..not nerd, they are more thorough in their research. Sudden obsession after TGCD..never saw it coming. How long have you followed the band? Since The Last Fair Deal Gone Down...but wasn't a huge fan back then. Do you think your still gonna listen to them in the future (let's say about 5 years from now.) ? I almost never give up on bands I like a lot, so I'm 90% sure I'll be listening to them. If I'll be on a forum like now is uncertain though. How did you first get in touch with their music? A friend played The Last Fair Deal Gone Down for me. Wich was the first song you heard with Katatonia? Tonight's Music Do you have any albums at home that you bought on a concert/shop? All of them..don't like downloading stuff that I like. Need the whole shebang. What is your favorite song (Could allow you to pick out 3-5 songs 'cause it isn't easy to choose.) and why is that? It will change from month to month but the most consistent is Leaders, Tonight's Music, Cold Ways, In Death, A Song, Wealth. All the songs either have something darkness that feels good to me (Cold ways and Tonight's Music are the best examples from my list I think). Leaders is an example of the new Katatonia I think, where suddenly..there's a kickass bass and drums which is fantastic to my ears..and a dark groove which is sorely missed within this kind of music. In Death, A Song there's again the groove thing. Wealth has great use of vocal effects and is unpredictable in a good way. And...blablabla.. Have you ever seen them live? If so, how was it and when did you see them? Never actually..they got sick the last time they where in Norway. But of course..I wasn't a big fan back then. Pick your favorite album/ep/single, why do you find it the best? Argh..hard question..sorry, can't answer it. What do you think makes the band so special? Jonas's voice, their dark yet fresh dark soundscapes and their constant way of renewing themselves in a way that works. Are you really obsessed with them? Like putting up pictures on the wall of the band aso. ? Nope, of course..one of the album covers might make it somewhere some day. Not very likely though.. So now, Katatonia is working on a new album, or so I've heard. How do you think it will sound and are you having high hopes? Hopefully there's some songs like Leaders there, diverse soundscapes, something new...(like a Ukulele)..haha, for some reason I just want that. All in all I just want a combination of Discouraged Ones, TGCD and VE. THat's not hard to make right? Now, what is the view "outsiders" have on their music? My gf likes them all all of a sudden and most people seem pleasantly surprised when I play it. "What's this you're playing now?", "Katatonia eh? Oh..neat" But of course..I have to choose the songs that fit their taste the most. So seldom the hardest songs.
