Description

Atmospheric Doom

Rapture has always been known for sounding a lot like mid-period Katatonia. People who dislike the band even describe them as a simple clone of Katatonia. While this goes a bit to far, but it is certain at least that both bands sound very similar in style. Rapture is a band well worth checking out if you wished Katatonia had continued on the path they went with 'Brave Murder Day'. Vocally both acts also sound alike a lot, be it that Rapture seems to mix grunted and clean vocals more. Another point of debate has always been if their music can truly be described Doom-metal (a similar issue exists with Katatonia). We feel their sound is sufficiently doomed sounding to list them however. Not to mention that a large number of doom fans appreciate their music greatly. Worth checking out if your into mid period Katatonia.
