3.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment, 11 May 2003
This review is from: Viva Emptiness (Audio CD)
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.
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.
