Katatonia For Funerals To Come on LP
Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse. Their debut album, 1993's Dance of December Souls, was immediately recognized for its eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal and soon saw the group joining the ranks of Paradise Lot and My Dying Bride as one of the genre's defining bands.
On future albums a newer, sleeker Katatonia sound came to the fore, starting with a streamlined and structured collection of melodic dark rock songs that became third album Discouraged Ones; the main evolution point for modern day Katatonia. For Funerals to Come is an incredibly rare piece of death/doom metal mastery from back in 1994, which was recorded following Katatonia's debut album, Dance of December Souls.
For Funerals To Come was recorded with Dan Swanö at the famous Unisound Studios and contains the trademarks of early era Katatonia; haunting guitar melodies, slow tempos and the tortured vocals of Jonas Renkse which all combine to create a powerful wave of melancholy and gothic darkness.
