”The Winter of Our Passing – masterly percieved by Costin Chioreanu. The letting go of what once was of great importance, now reduced to just another loss. Let’s bow before the flame we’ve all deserted. But thank you for listening.” Jonas Renkse
Three years in the making, City Burials is another huge statement from the legendary band that are eleven albums into a career that spans three decades.
City Burials stands as Katatonia’s new triumph of deep, progressive rock with what has come to be a rejuvenating, stirring and profound chapter in the band’s legacy – a catalyst for the burdens of its creators, a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an evolving life, all compiled into one of the band’s most important modern works and statements to date, with the voice of Jonas Renkse guiding us through these latest trials of loss and ruin.
The album was recorded at Soundtrade Studios, Tri-Lamb Studios & The City Of Glass, throughout October & November 2019, with engineering work handled by Karl Daniel Lidén. The album also features a guest appearance by Anni Bernhard, the voice behind Stockholm based act Full of Keys. Artwork appears courtesy of Lasse Hoile, the image itself representing the ongoing era of the Dead End King.
The new opus is garnering huge praise from the worldwide media as is evident here:
“City Burials is arguably Katatonia’s strongest album for 20 years” 9/10 -Metal Hammer(UK)
“Yearning epics laced with sky-clawing guitar dynamics …. Welcome back, chaps” Prog Magazine
“an affirmation of this band’s incredible creative power” –Loud Magazine(AUS)
