|According to the members of Katatonia, this album was "recorded and mixed...during one lonely day in early september 1994". This is possible, considering that it lasts only 18 minutes and that it contains only four tracks, the last one being an unnecessary noise track. But I'm sure that the period they needed to compose the tracks, especially the first two ones, lasted more than "one lonely day".|
'Funeral Wedding' and 'Shades of Emerald Fields' are pretty complicated tracks and they offer very well produced, melodic, guitar orientated doom death full of variation and rhythm changes, with only some keyboards here and there to enhance the sad atmosphere. The third track is a sad, slow acoustic melody with highly distorted vocals. Like I said before, the last track is a pretty unnecessary noise track.
I'm sure that if this was a full album, it would be one of the most popular Katatonia albums for doom metal fans.
