KATATONIA - Announces New Release

Swedish legends of dark-atmospheric rock Katatonia will unexpectedly return with a new release entitled Dethroned And Uncrowned. This album which is set for official release on 9th September via Kscope, is a radical reinterpretation of bands last studio album Dead End Kings, released in August 2012 via Peaceville Records. Dethroned And Uncrowned finds Katatonia exploring the more ambient and progressive elements of Dead End Kings, while remaining truthful to the core of the album's songs. Guitarist of the band Anders Nyström commented: "The album is foremost stripped down rather than 'pimped', it's also semi-acoustic and most things have been turned around, completely! The album title doesn't lie, the drums have been dethroned and distorted rhythm guitars have been uncrowned! We've placed the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album." Album will be available in two different editions: double vinyl and CD+DVD with 5.1 Mix. Link
