Day 208 – Katatonia

Apologies to those expecting a comeback for the Welsh Britpoppers fronted by Cerys Matthews, but this is a completely different Katatonia.

These guys are Swedish doom metallers who have been going since the early 90s – but the track I’ve chosen, Hypnone, is a more broody hard/alt-rock sound than their previous stuff.

Instead of dark, intense doom-mongering, this is more introspective fare, with keyboard backdrops, acoustic guitars and deep, brow-furrowing bass. It’s not a style that I’ve seen in vogue for a long while, so it’s a lot of fun to hear it done really well.

Hope you enjoy it.
