Formed in 1991 by Anders Nystrom and Jonas Renske 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 Lost & 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 & structured collection of melodic dark rock songs that became third album 'Discouraged Ones'; the main evolution point for modern day Katatonia, On the back of the monumental & most successful album to date. 2006's 'The Great Cold Distance' - including three singles & an American & European tour - there came a period of soulsearching from the Swedes, facing a task of making a worthy & relevant successor to the ground-breaking album, With a conscious effort not to merely repeat themselves, Katatonia took their time with their next steps, while Anders & Jonas also remained busy with death metal group Bloodbath, alongside Mikael & Martin from Opeth, Night is the New Day is Katatonia's eighth studio album, It was recorded throughout July 2009 & was co-produced, engineered and mixed by David Castillo, A continuation of the heaviness, depth & atmosphere of their previous album. 'Night Is the New Day' is also a more multi-dimensional effort - waltzing between prog moments, doom, folk & the classic melodic anthems that are the staple of Katatonia's uncompromising sound, completed by the haunting tones of Jonas Renkse's vocal journeys of urban & emotional decay.
