In the latest part of the "...And Justice For Art" serial on Pure Grain Audio, writer Ramon Martos-Garcia explores the highly charged artwork of the band Katatonia. Now on its ninth album, guitarist Anders Nystrom from the Swedish band explains the symbolism behind "Dead End Kings" and the credo of the artistry of Katatonia: "To follow your own vision without compromising and conforming to other people’s demands and expectations would make you a king in what people would just define as a dead end."
