Album Review

Katatonia fans who missed out on the 2012 triple-vinyl-only Last Fair Day Gone Night thought they missed out on an exceptional live set, and in terms of packaging fetishism, they did. This deluxe package goes a long way and them some toward rectifying that situation. It collects all of the songs from the vinyl edition of the band's run at London's Koko in 2011, presented over two discs. The first contains a track-for-track performance of Last Fair Deal Gone Down — it was year of the album's tenth anniversary and the band's 20th. The record is significant because it marks Katatonia's first full departure from metal. This dynamic glance at the past comes through the blasted gaze of their sonic and musical evolution. It's still ferociously heavy, but its textures, spaces, and melodies are far more expansive yet in sharper focus. The remainder is comprised of several tunes from Night Is the New Day — their then-current studio offering — and Great Cold Distance, with the remainder culled from all studio offerings besides 1996's Dance of December Souls, thus making for a true live retrospective. (For those wondering if Katatonia is still capable of delivering death metal at this point, a listen to "Brave," the disc opener, should dispel any reservations.). This package also includes a DVD of the music from the audio discs, but more importantly, a second one containing a 132-minute biographical documentary as narrated by Katatonia's Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström. While it's true that many of the stories told here have previously made rounds on the web, but having them assembled officially as a whole, with loads of additional material and outstanding quality, is a serious bonus.

Worth It for "I Break" if Nothing Else.

Glad to see this album becoming available on iTunes. The song "I Break" is one of, if the the, best song Katatonia ever recorded.


This is Katatonia at it's best. If you already like these guys, which is impossible not to, just buy it. These are some of the best live recordings I have ever heard. One tip though, look over at @maz0N, it's 6 bucks cheaper there. Seriously, I'm sure the band is not seeing that money!


This is an amazing record. It was recorded live, but the production on it is amazing. You can hear every instrument very neatly. The most amazing thing is that it has way more power (in terms of feeling the songs) than the original record. This is why you need to go see Katatonia live. This is a must buy.


Formed: 1991 in Stockholm, Sweden

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Considered by many to be one of the heavyweights of Swedish metal, Katatonia had a long and storied career that saw them move from a rough, sludge-like doom metal sound to a more streamlined approach, losing the guttural vocals and adding a more accessible, riff-based sheen to their brand of gothic doom. Formed in 1991 in Stockholm, Sweden, Katatonia started out life as a studio-based two-piece. Members Jonas Renkse (known then as Lord Seth) was the band's vocalist and drummer, and Anders Nyström...
