CITY BURIALS - KATATONIA’S 2020 STUDIO OPUS OF ABSORBING, SOARING PROGRESSIVE ROCK & METICULOUSLY CRAFTED DOSES OF MELANCHOLY. SINGLE LP FEATURING NEW HALF-SPEED MASTER FOR OPTIMAL SOUND QUALITY.
Formed in 1991 by Jonas Renkse & Anders Nyström & transitioning from early pioneers of the rising black/death/doom movement to powerhouses of the progressive metallic rock genre, the Swedish connoisseurs of melancholy returned in 2020 with their stellar opus, ‘City Burials’ - the band’s eleventh studio album, & first since 2016’s haunting ‘The Fall Of Hearts’.
With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, ‘City Burials’ stood as a triumph of deep & enigmatic progressive rock – the fruits of a rejuvenating & profound chapter in the band’s legacy & a catalyst for its creators. Compiled into one of their most important modern works & statements to date, the finely-honed instrumentation provides a multi-textured backdrop with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us through these latest trials of loss & ruin.
The chemistry between Jonas, Anders & their band mates – bassist Niklas Sandin, drummer Daniel Moilanen & most recent recruit, guitarist Roger Öjersson – never sounded more potent, with ‘City Burials’ being the first album Katatonia made since Öjersson became a full-time member.
Inspired by an injection of fresh blood into Katatonia’s creative brew, ‘City Burials’ helped Katatonia reclaim part of their heavy metal roots, via several moments of exuberant, old-school classicism, deftly woven into these new songs’ kaleidoscopic fabric, resulting in an album that propelled the band ever further into the spotlight.
