The first time I listened a few tracks of this album I inmediately decided to buy it. This is the kind of music that touches the heart, like music by Anathema. Do not expect growling vocals or extreem virtuosism but well composed tracks led by an amazing singer. Some reviewers state that this album is not as good as their previous releases. I admit I have not listened to previous releases by Katatonia but I don't need it to judge this album is great. Now, I will listen to previous albums but I doubt that they are much better that this one.

`Night Is The New Day' was an unforeseen surprise for many reasons. Listening to the introduction to `Forsaker', I always feel that the opening and main riff for the entire song, which sees the band use a fair amount of stuttering repetition, is very metallic. This record signifies to me that Katatonia have totally lost their metal edge and definitely remember their roots going back to the old doom laden days and darker atmospheric tendencies on `Discouraged Ones'. Having just seen Katatonia live last month in London, I have developed more of an appreciation for this record, as it took me some time to get used to the idea that they were going to be somewhat metallic in approach, alternative and perhaps slightly avant-gardé. According to most people who have managed to catch the Swedes live more than once, they normally take a few songs to get going and are quite slow to draw a positive response from the crowd, despite the wealth of experience on the shoulders of the musicians but, having witnessed them in London recently, most people at the gig, if not all, would agree that the line-up changes which have recently sent shockwaves through the band and their fans have had a positive affect on their performances in a live setting.

Although Per Eriksson and Niklas Sandin are only session members, performing on tour with the band, there is a feeling that Katatonia were in desperate need of a change. Although we're used to hearing a change in sound, from one record to another, the band seemingly required a line-up change to give them the boost they needed to perform well in front of an avid audience who were lapping up everything the band had to offer, particularly the performance of `Omerta', which saw the jubilant crowd sing along to the upbeat lyrics.

If there's one band that's had loads of promise ( not to mention goodwill from their fans ), but never quite fulfilled, it's Katatonia.
I have every album since 'Discouraged Ones', and as that title suggests, it's very easy to be put off by Katatonia: Terrible sixthform-metal name, Death Metal origins, awful image. And the previous albums haven't helped either: After a stupendous couple of opening tracks, always failing to hold the attention later on. The dirgy nature of their songs, and lack of different tempos probably contributed to my listener-fatigue. ( Hey, I'm A FAN so I feel I can be a bit critical, because the potential for greatness was always there ).
However, with the previous album, 'The Great Cold Distance' the songwriting and production quality took a marked leap forward. In fact, the entire first half of that album verged on 'classic', and the second half, being also pretty excellent, almost didn't get a look-in due to the immensity of those first tracks.
Finally, with 'Night Is The New Day', they have done it. Greatness all the way through. Varied songs, crushing riffs, beautiful melodies, aching melancholia.
Amazingly, I had to double-check the album credits for any sign of Michael Akerfeldt of Opeth, as this could actually BE Opeth, minus the death metal vocals, which I'm pretty sure a lot of people would be very happy to hear about. Several tracks are reminiscent of Opeth's landmarks and the atmosphere, playing, vocals and even some of the fills could be from 'Damnation' ( imagine an electric version of that acoustic classic - that's what some of this sounds like! ), plus bits of 'Ghost Reveries'. But no, despite being singer Jonas's former flatmate, Michael is only mentioned in the 'thanks' list.

Yet another brilliant album by Katatonia with the extra tracks bringing an interesting twist to two of the best songs on this album.
I think this album has a noticeably darker and more emotional tone to the last few albums and although it is still very good, it doesn't beat he Great Cold Distance (which is essential if you've not got)

Katatonia are getting better and better. With the production quality getting stronger on each release, the band is also in a great place musically. Especially in the Vocal department. Some of the Vocals on these tracks take them from a 'good' to 'excellent' status. No more bland delivery, the emotion on this disc is stunning. Especially on the last track 'Departer'.

Seems the band has finally found their niche. This disc is their best overall and is filled with some nice harmonies, good songwriting and is solid from start to finish. Some of their prior efforts were hit and miss, this is not. Its consistent. Even with a touch more of a commercial sound, it does not come across generic, the band has merely developed.

I swear that some of these songs just sit in your mind. There are no 'hooks' really, just layers of harmonies and soft tempos that stay with you for the most part. You will find yourself wanting more with repeated listens. Its hard to describe, but if you already like the band you understand. Its a mood. Somber and Emotional, but has something more. No label can really define these songs.

That is not to say there aren't heavy parts. Most of the songs build from soft to mid-paced heavy tracks with a solid guitar punch. Especially on the excellent 'Promise of Deceit'. I like this as some of their earlier works, the guitar sound was a little hollow. This disc has a solid 'crunch' to the guitar chords just like their last disc (Great Cold Distance) did, that make the interaction with the softer tones that much more powerful..

Quick Breakdown :

Forsaker - Heavy opening track with soft and heavy backdrops. Opens it up.

Longest Year - Good mid-paced track with excellent sounding drums and harmonies.
