Katatonia

The classic 'Brave Murder Day' coming to vinyl November 26th

Katatonia’s legendary second album, ‘Brave Murder Day’, will be released on heavyweight black vinyl through Peaceville Records on November 26th. Pre-order here.

Originally released in 1996, ‘Brave Murder Day’ is a true metal classic of the doom/death genre. The hypnotic & primitive structures and melodies lend the album an unparalleled trance-like quality, taking an early Paradise Lost influence (mixed with other diverse artists such as Kent and Slowdive) and forming a completely unique sound and atmosphere.

The majority of the vocal duties were carried out in his signature death-growl style by Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth, while Jonas Renkse delivered clean vocals on the ethereal track, ‘Day’, as well as handling drum duties on the album.

‘Brave Murder Day’ was recorded at Unisound, Sweden, in July 1996, and was engineered by Dan Swanö (Opeth, Marduk, etc).
