Katatonia - City Burials - CD Mediabook -

Price per Unit (stuk): €17.95


Catharsis comes in many forms, and with that, the release and expression of emotions. This is what fuels and conceives most art, and within the many mediums of artistic expression, music is often the purest and most potent. Even so, it takes a special kind of artist, musical or otherwise, to truly capture a certain emotion or feeling and express that viscerally through a work of art without it being diluted by the creative process. As many have said throughout history, great art comes from pain. If this is true, then the musicians that comprise Katatonia have particularly keen insight into the depths of human suffering.

Of course, this was clear from the very first notes of their legendary 1993 debut Dance of December Souls. Back then, Katatonia leaned heavily into the more direct darkness that death and doom metal had to offer. Over time, however, Katatonia morphed into more of a gothic and even alternative metal band, pulling influence from fellow gothic metal contemporaries Paradise Lost and other progressive and hard rock acts such as Porcupine Tree and Tool. Still, they’ve always had a certain essence about them, one that’s melancholic and depressive, yet still inexplicably uplifting, and on their 11th studio album City Burials, Katatonia diverges their output of the last 10 years into a concise, experimental and singularly focused album of music.
