The Great Cold DistanceHailed as one of the leaders of the death-doom genre alongside My Dying Bride and Paradise Lost, Sweden's Katatonia have spent 25 years constantly evolving into the much-loved purveyor of dark progressive rock/metal they are today.
2016 marks not only the band's 25th anniversary, but also 10 years since the release of their highly regarded Peaceville album The Great Cold Distance.
Founding guitarist Anders Nystrom comments:
"Looking back at our set lists from a historic perspective, it dawned on us that there's been no other album from which we've played more songs than The Great Cold Distance, so in the light of its 10th anniversary, it's with much pride and joy that we announce the ultimate edition featuring all the scattered bits and pieces related to this album."LP 1

Discouraged Ones’Discouraged Ones’ was Katatonia’s third album, originally released in 1998. The band was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1991 by Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström & have risen from their early beginnings in dark death/gothic doom metal to become one of the leading acts of the metallic rock/prog scene.
’Discouraged Ones’ was recorded in 1997 at the infamous Sunlight Studios by Fred Estby and Tomas Skogsberg (Entombed, Dismember). The album saw a new direction change with the epic compositions of old replaced with stripped down, compact structures to make room for new vocal harmonies courtesy of Jonas Renkse (who also played drums on the album), putting an end to the growling vocal style from prior releases and giving the band a broader appeal.LP1

Katatonia was formed in Stock‘Dance of December Souls’ was the debut album from Katatonia, who have since risen to the forefront of the gothic metal genre. Katatonia was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1991 by Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström.
The album was recorded at Unisound Studios, April 1993 and released later that same year. Engineering and mixing was handled by Dan Swano (Opeth, Marduk, Dissection). This early incarnation of Katatonia contained a more doom/black metal approach, whilst always keeping the trademark sorrowful & hypnotic guitar melodies which are still evident today. The album exudes an atmosphere of utter melancholy, accentuated by the growled, despairing vocals of Jonas. Katatonia quickly became part of the leaders of the gothic doom movement alongside top UK acts Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and Anathema.LP1

Brave Murder Day (Out of Stock)Originally released in 1996, second album Brave Murder Day is a true classic.
The primitive structures and melodies give this album an unparalleled trance-like quality, by taking an early Paradise Lost influence (mixed with others such as Kent and Slowdive) and forming a completely unique sound and atmosphere.
The majority of the vocal duties were carried out in his signature death-growl style by Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, while Jonas Renkse delivered the clean vocal passages, that he is known for today, on the ethereal track, Day (also showing their broad influence by acts such as The Cure). Jonas also played drums on the album.
Brave Murder Day was recorded at Unisound, Sweden, in July 1996, and was engineered by Dan Swanö (Opeth, Marduk, Dark Funeral, Dissection & among many others).1. Brave
