Mikael Akerfeldt Comments On Katatonia Album

Opeth front man Mikael Akerfeldt, who appeared on the early Katatonia releases "Brave Murder Day" and "Sounds of Decay," has issued the following statement about the upcoming Katatonia album "Night is the New Day:"

"Katatonia - Night is the new day is possibly the greatest 'heavy' record I've heard in the last 10 years. Most people know my history with them and also my friendship with the guys. Jonas and I have been best buddies for the last 18 years or so.

"Everytime Opeth or Katatonia has a new record we arrange a small private listening party. Usually with myself, Anders and Jonas. For years we've managed to record albums around the same time and had both the new Opeth album and the new Katatonia album played back on the same session. It's always great fun, however disciplined.

"You can't talk during playback (death penalty), you listen to the album all the way through twice, and then we have the 'comments'. Everything is washed down with beer or wine...there might be snacks on the table.

"Well, 2 days after the new Katatonia album is mastered here we are, holed up in a friends apartment ready to go through the new masterpiece by Katatonia. And it truly is a masterpiece! I have not been this taken back by an album for a long time. I almost had tears in my eyes. It's an absolutely stunning piece of music! Easily their most progressive and emotional record as far as I'm concerned. More...

Katatonia Issues Recording Update

Katatonia has issued the following recording update for their upcoming album "Night is the New Day:"

"It's hard to believe, but it's a fact - the rathole sessions are over, we're done! David ‘King rat of the rathole’ Castillo, Jonas and me have spent the longest studio sessions this far with nearly every hour of the day (or night) since we finished up with the vocals. Picture this: Mix down, reference listening, un-do, re-do, mix down, reference listening, repeat x 100. There's always something you find to correct, whether it's one drum hit thats not loud enough, or a backing harmony that doesnt cut through, or a frequenzy in the bass that makes the rathole sound like a steamboat, yeah basically hundreds of things that fight for their position and balance in the sound picture. One song even reached a staggering 136 (!) active tracks. That's quite a contrast to the days were we were given 16 tracks for the whole package. Everything has to be optimized and you end up going back and forth improving and updating versions of the mix to replace the previous efforts and you can do this for eternity, unless you have a deadline. We just managed to complete the mix at the very last day and let me tell you, the album sounds fan-fukkin-tastic! It's heavy, punchy and crunchy. It sounds very 3D in headphones. We put this album back to back with a couple of other band's albums and it is either right up there sideways with them, or it simply sits with it's azz on their faces. Crushed! More...

Katatonia Issues New Album Recording Update

Katatonia is currently set to release their upcoming album "Night is the New Day" on November 2nd in Europe and November 10th in the U.S. through Peaceville Records. Katatonia has also issued the following recording update:

"Vocals... what about them? Well, yeah... they have to be there. Even though I had done much of the vocal parts/ideas already on the demos, I couldn't imagine the extent of what was about to come. Starting out, I was feeling better than I thought, since I had problems with my throat earlier during the recording. It wasn't a cold as I first expected, I have no idea what it was/is, but it has affected me in some ways.

"I keep singing, it's what I do, apparently. I think it sounds good, but it feels weird at times (age?). More tracks nailed and listening back, I realize that I've never sung this MUCH on an album before. Not that I'm singing ALL THE TIME (don't worry), but the vocals are much more demanding. I hope it is because the singing is better, and not because my throat is worse. Anyway, I'm kinda confident.

"After a few breaks in the recording to play some festival gigs (Portugal, Germany and the UK) I went back down the rathole to nail the last few songs. My voice was already tired from the studio session, and even more tired from the gigs and I was really worried, but behind the microphone everything fell into place for that one last session. I've done my part... soon it is your part, folks! Because the mixdown is already well under way, we've currently nailed 5 songs out of 12 and we're continuing to nail 1 song per day, so on September 1st, the album is going to be completed. No more rathole, we're free to go. It's hard to believe it's true. It looks like the mini-site is gonna open on September 7th or 11th with the final tracklist, audio snippets and more."
