Katatonia : Discouraged Ones



Since 'Brave Murder Day', it became clear that Katatonia was searching for new ways of expression. But not everybody expected that they would completely abandon the harsh vocals and continue only with Renkse's clear vocals. This is actually the biggest difference with Katatonia's previous full length album.

The clear vocals sound a bit mellow at times, but generally they fit with the still monotonous, melancholic guitar sound. The atmosphere is not as lethargic as on the previous album, and the production is much more powerful. Some may say that Katatonia now plays rock music, but I definately don't agree, because the guitar sound is still heavy and crunchy.

No, Katatonia doesn't play doom metal any more, but it's difficult to ignore great tracks like 'Deadhouse', 'Relention' and 'Saw You Drown'.
