LP - Indie Exclusive Crystal Clear Vinyl featuring the original album cover artwork & full printed lyrics.
Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nystrom & Jonas Renkse. Their debut album, 'Dance Of December Souls', was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal & joining acts such as Paradise Lot & My Dying Bride as one of the genre's defining bands. Originally released in 1996, second album Brave Murder Day' is a true classic.
The primitive structures & melodies give this album an unparalleled trance-like quality, by taking an early Paradise Lost influence (mixed with others such as Kent & Slowdive) & forming a completely unique sound & atmosphere. Most of the vocal duties were carried out in his former 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'. Jonas also played drums on the album. 'Brave Murder Day' was recorded at Unisound, Sweden, in July 1996 & was engineered by Dan Swan (Opeth, Marduk, Dark Funeral, Dissection & among many others).
This edition of 'Brave Murder Day' is presented on black vinyl, featuring the original album cover artwork & full printed lyrics.
