Special 4-disc set. An electrifying anniversary London show from the Swedish metal masters captured on DVD with accompanying double audio disc & extensive documentary DVD. Katatonia was formed in 1991 by Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse. Their debut album, 'Dance of December Souls', was released in 1993, gaining the band recognition for their eclectic brand of gothic doom/death metal and joining acts such as Paradise Lost and My Dying Bride as one of the genre's defining bands. On future albums a newer, sleeker Katatonia sound came to the fore, starting with a streamlined and structured collection of melodic dark rock songs that became third album 'Discouraged Ones' which is widely regarded as the main evolution point for modern day Katatonia. 'Last Fair Day Gone Night' features the Swedish dark rock/metal masters at their glorious best with this electrifying set from London's esteemed Koko venue, with the band's captivating performance captured on DVD with accompanying double audio disc of the whole concert. Also includes a full band documentary charting the early days and subsequent rise of the prolific Swedes, as told in the words of band masterminds Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström. Recorded during a series of special celebratory shows to mark the band's 20th anniversary during 2011's 'Last Fair Day Gone Night' tour, founding members Anders Nyström & Jonas Renkse are joined by drummer Daniel Liljekvist, plus guitarist Per Eriksson and bassist Niklas Sandin, for an exhilarating evening fuelled by a rich & extensive set of Katatonia tracks both past & present. Also includes a special 10th anniversary performance of the landmark 2001 album 'Last Fair Deal Gone Down' in its entirety. Sleeve artwork comes courtesy of long-time collaborator Travis Smith. This edition of 'Last Fair Day Gone Night' is presented in deluxe mediabook packaging, including an additional 24 page booklet.
Top Customer Reviews
It's very good value for money, what with 2 dvds and 2 cds and a classy digibook. The discs are each held inside a cardboard sleeve, so they're well protected but very easy to slip in and out.
The dvd of the show was very enjoyable. Stereo sound is the only option but it sounded fine, and good separation of the twin guitars across the range, plenty of bass and vocals reasonably clear. (Renske doesn't have the strongest of voices but I could hear him clearly enough). There are a few visual effects onscreen, but for the most part it's straight-forward long shots, aerial shots and close-ups depending on who is the song's main focus, and there's none of the lightning edits that make so many concert dvds so tiring on the eyes. In fact, the lengthy shots perfectly match the moderate pace of the songs.
The 2nd dvd has a look back over the past 20 years, and runs for a whopping 2 hrs 20 minutes. The 3 longstanding band members each offer their views on a year by year basis, and for the most part it's an interesting backstory for people new to the band. It would have been interesting to get their views on the more recent music and line-up changes, but presumably it stopped at 2011 to coincide with the date the concert was filmed.
Considering the quality of the contents and the classy packaging this is very good value for money.
The triple vinyl box is beautifully packaged and well worth the price.
