More Info:

Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nyström and 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 and joining acts such as Paradise Lot and 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 and melodies give this album an unparalleled trance-like quality, by taking an early Paradise Lost influence (mixed with others such as Kent and Slowdive) and forming a completely unique sound and 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 and was engineered by Dan Swanö (Opeth, Marduk, Dark Funeral, Dissection). This edition of Brave Murder Day is presented on colored vinyl LP featuring the original album sleeve design plus an additional booklet with an extensive look back at the album from Anders Nystrom, with contributions from Jonas Renkse.
