    i vote for the longest year, but it is a shame, that you can't vote for like 2 or three tracks at the same time

    Onward into battle all the way.
    When i read the name on the track list I was expecting some kind of battle metal or something but I was pleasantly surprised to find an awesome song. Gets played at least once a day in my house.

    First post on this forum HI EVERYONE!

    Upon the first listen i didnt really care for Ashen that much, but after about 20 or so listens, its pretty solid.

    I really really enjoy Day and then the shade(could be that magic bands work into a single to be auto catchy :p) i especially love the line "i will rise, over glass cathedrals."

    The Promise Of Deceit as it has a very dark feeling and the lyrics pretty rule I think :rofl:
    After that comes Inheritance and Idle Blood.. but it is still to early to decide a final favorite

    First of all, I have a lot to say here. And I think it's always the case when an album affects me greatly. I don't remember the last time a "whole" album has given me the chills the way NITND has. I mean wow, this album is seriously filled with some impressive moments and I couldn't thank these guys enough for putting out such incredible work.

    Haha, I've read through all the comments here and for the most part, I agree with everyone lol. This whole album is just so freaking great picking a single track seems futile. But I will say that Nephilim is the ONLY one I can't quite "feel" the way I do the others. I don't dislike it, but it's clearly my least favourite track on the album. I guess it's just not melodic enough for me...Katatonia are masters of MELODY!


    And everyone who has voted Inheritance...GREAT taste, guys! I think it's Jonas' finest moment vocally. The opening line, I can wholeheartedly say, gave me the most chills out of any moment on the album. If anyone can honestly say they dislike this song I'll be shocked haha. It does remind me a lot of Unfurl which is just awesome considering it's one of my all-time favs from the guys. Lastly, the guitars are just gorgeous.

    Krister Linder on Departer - just what can I say? The dude blows me away and he totally delivers on this magnificent track. He and Jonas really compliment one another nicely. By far Katatonia's greatest closing track they have ever recorded; just just such a perfect way to close things off. It puts me in such a retrospective state...once it is finished, you feel (at least I did) like a fantastic, dramatic film or story just unfolded before your eyes.

    Having said all that (those songs just deserve their praise), my vote simply just had to go to The Longest Year. This song just features everything I freaking love about Katatonia with possibly the most stunning chorus I have ever heard in a rock song. And all I can say is the sample does not even give it justice compared to how the chorus unfolds from the soothing verse. It's that buildup that just simply works and I was blown away this song became much more than I could have ever expected. The song had the MOST impact for me with that gorgeous progression when Jonas begins to sing how cold is the flame, of our uncompromising future, how cold is the sun - the riff is brilliant, such an awesome transition.

    :headbang: 10/10 from me. Oh hell yeah! It's one of those albums that actually makes an impact once you're finished listening to it. Now I understand what Akerfeldt was actually talking about...I think he was spot on. Strong emotional connection, no doubt about it.


    edit: woops, can I post up my top 5??? I always have to do this sort of thing.

    1. The Longest Year
    2. Onward Into Battle
    3. Forsaker
    4. Liberation
    5. Inheritance

    Ahhh, this was harder than with TGCD....damnnnn. Also, let me mention that New Night has the best intro on the album of any song (for me) - I'll never forget the first reaction I had to it. That sound of the guitar - niiiiice and the playfulness of it. So dark!

    Gotta say Liberation, it just grows to the end all the scarier and massive. Love Jonas at the end.

    Too many votes for Longest year, and too few for Nephilim!

    My vote changes from day to day, but currently "Inheritance" is sounding very nice.
