KATATONIA spelar in

Nu inleder KATATONIA inspelningen av nästkommande album, börjandes med trummorna imorgon måndag. Så vad har vi att vänta av bandets nionde studioalbum? På KATAONIAs webbplats går bland annat följande att läsa om den kommande plattan:
"So, what does the material sound like? Well, you got the lush textures, the moody melodies, the heavy parts, the progressive touches, the mellow bits and so on... Is it metal? Is it rock? Is it alternative? Is it singer/songwriter? Actually at times it feels like we're exploring territories where KATATONIA would be an orphan in the land of 'genres.' We can't tell where and to whom we belong and the goal is that it doesn't even matter, because before and above any genre there's first an acceptance level of music being good, or being bad. KATATONIA might be bad people, but we create good music. Amen."
På förra plattan återfanns bland annat gästsång av Krister Linder från ENTER THE HUNT, och även denna gång tycks bandet öppet för otraditionella inslag i musikbilden:
"We also hooked up again with keyboard maestro extraordinaire Frank Default and regardless of the internet speculations, he's not to 'blame' for the increased use of electronics since the last album. That part has been called for as we simply feel that it has grown to fill a hole in our sound inside, or alongside, the classic formation of instruments. In our world, we allow mellotrones, Hammonds, rhodes and strings to integrate with loops, distortion and filters to manifest in the katatonic maelstrom. It's our time to marry contemporary with vintage. Here's our ninth album to be delivered!"

  1. Detta kan ju bli helt fantastiskt men även floppa. Känns som de, precis som Opeth, väljer att gå en helt egen väg.
