Katatonia is currently in the studio working on the follow-up to 2012's "Dead End Kings" (reviewed here).

Official details on the title and release date aren't prepped for public consumption yet, but the masters of melancholy did just check in with this studio update:

"We have just completed the drum recording and wrapped up the first session at Studio Gröndahl. It’s been a fun, relaxed, yet very focused past week guiding Daniel Moilanen into putting down the cornerstones to all our new songs.

"This guy surely has the skills of harnessing both power and finesse that goes in perfect harmony with Katatonia. Before we tell you more, here’s a few snippets of Mojjo in action while recording one of the heavier tracks. Enjoy!"

DRUMS DONE!We have just completed the drum recording and wrapped up the first session at Studio Gröndahl. It’s been a fun, relaxed, yet very focused past week guiding Daniel Moilanen into putting down the cornerstones to all our new songs. This guy surely has the skills of harnessing both power and finesse that goes in perfect harmony with Katatonia. Before we tell you more, here’s a few snippets of Mojjo in action while recording one of the heavier tracks. Enjoy!

This has actually got me excited. Last album was good, but it was a bit too lacking in the heaviness for my taste. Wasn't the perfect Katatonia balance that TGCD and NITND were. Hopefully this steers them back around. Really going to miss Daniel Liljekvist's unique style—he's one of my all time fave drummers—but at least it looks like the band is in good hands!
