5.0 out of 5 stars Crowned as my new discovery, 19 Sept. 2013
This review is from: Dethroned & Uncrowned (Audio CD)
I take on board the last reviewer's comments in that that this album may not attract new fans, but it depends what route you took to discover them

Sure, if you are looking for a sound that is parallel to your regular listen and that is similar to old school Katatonia, then this may be not what you expected.

My route to them was again similar to the last reviewer with Wisdom Of Crowds and for me most things K-Scope. A very pretty, melancholic and superbly recorded effort that showcases the stripped down Dead End Kings (also purchased) and brings Jonas Renske's sublime voice to the fore.

Overall the album is fantastic and should entice those along the same route as me. Coupled with the room filing second disc, it's an easy 5 stars for me.

Hey, dude. I'm also a fan of many on the K-Scope label, particularly TPT, Anathema and North Atlantic Oscillation. I've been into Katatonia for a few years, now, and have a lot of their earlier stuff. I think it's fair to say that they're steadily moving away from a darker, doomier metal to something much more progressive in much the way that Opeth are doing. That suits me entirely.

I'm another K-scope fan. Porcupine Tree, Blackfield (all things Steve Wilson), Opeth, Anathema etc

I heard the Wisdom of Crowds album and thought to check out the song writer's own bands.

Could you recommend to me some songs to get started on Katatonia? I'm unsure as to which album/era of the band will appeal to me most. Not sure which songs/albums to start with
