5.0 out of 5 stars a classic album of its genre and a milestone in Katatonia's career, 16 Jun 2013

This review is from: Brave Murder Day (Audio CD)
One brief solitary review on the Amazon UK website convinced me to write a second.

This is a classic early doom / death metal album of the mid-nineties and it remains one of Katatonia's milestones. Before the curious shy away at the thought of growling vocals, groups like Opeth and early Katatonia, employ growling vocals for creative and emotional expression rather than just to hit the high decibels. Katatonia's music generally flows at a low energy level which suits the dreamy, melancholic mood and dark atmosphere and helps to accentuate those crescendos, climaxes and moments of emotional intensity.

This is an excellent album throughout but Brave, Murder, Day and Endtime are particularly notable. Do not expect tight 3 minute "hits" - you wont find any here. The sound is refreshingly raw and the production side is not overcooked. Someone suggested you listen to this with the lights off. It's not a bad idea but i spent hours plugged into this against a backdrop of snow and sun. What really matters is that you give yourself the space to "meditate" over the music without too much interuption around you.

Brave Murder Day should also appeal to fans of Katatonia's clean vocal style which the band adopted after this album. It is certainly worth a try.
