5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Dark
EDIT: This review is for the original edition, released back in 2006, NOT the remastered version which dropped through my letterbox this morning and which I'll be reviewing shortly.

This album is a masterpiece. Straight up, no questions, there it is. It's that good. I've been a fan of Katatonia since Discouraged Ones, but this rules them all. But...

3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment
When I first heard the opening track of Viva Emptiness, Ghost of the Sun, I was pleasantly intrigued. I heard a more aggressive Katatonia, quite a different feel to that of Last Fair Deal Gone Down. However, despite the catchy chorus of the first track, the album's lack of emotion makes it a fairly dull experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars Strrong album, 14 Sept. 2010
This review is from: Viva Emptiness (Audio CD)
A really strong album, Katatonias strongest one. Don't let the poor logo of the band fool you, they sound nothing like goth or death metal any longer. Buy it if you like Tool. Katatonia is a mix between Tool and a-ha :-)

5.0 out of 5 stars Great band and tracks, 15 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Viva Emptiness (Audio CD)
Introduced to Katanonia by a very special person to help me branch out with my musical metal tastes. Throughly enjoyable band, relishing the opportunity to see them live at some point.

Despite moving in a heavier direction, the band still aren't that heavy, the guitars take a back seat to vocals and (surprisingly) drums. It's not all bad though, but those who like the band for the melancholy tunes of LFDGD may be disappointed. Likewise, those who are more inclined towards Katatonia's early work, such as Dance of the December Souls, will most likely not enjoy the slightly nu-metal direction they're taking.
