CobiWan Secundum Filium Posts: One could say that Katatonia have reverted to “a more mainstream sound” or have turned into a pop band. I Break Jonas Renkse.

Songs are far from being exceptionally slow by doom standards, but the problem is, it is NOT doom metal, it is rock, and obviously this album is still too slow by rock standards, what makes it extremely sleep-inducing. On the other hand, it’s great mood music for any state of fragility, despair, or tiredness.

Mexico You katatonia discouraged ones described the whole feeling of the album. ShredJune 26th, Katatpnia guitars sound is if they are tuned to standard instead of drop ‘D’ and the songs have more conventional structures. The key aspects of the sound katatonia discouraged ones are the thickly layered guitars, which are distorted but somewhat pushed back in the mix, and the huge, reverberating drumbeats, which are almost uniformly played in a slow-to-medium tempo and seem purposely simplistic.

All the instruments sort of meld together to form a solid backbone. However, the growls, double bass drumming and heavier riffing are completely eliminated from the music, and are instead replaced by clean, melancholic but still dense and distorted guitar lines, and heartfelt sung vocals, not unlike the ones of The Cure’s Robert Smith.
