[blockquote cite=”Katatonia”]This album is probably everything we unknowingly ever dreamed of to release. It’s a bleak but adventurous journey through our elements, we haven’t held back, we have pushed to get forward and backward in the ever spiralling night of our musical legacy.[/blockquote]

Katatonia exhausted their energy for the past four years touring the world, as well as extending their music lovers through two unique albums on Kscope Records, the sister label of Peaceville. Both of their latest releases demonstrate the acts course toward a more progressive sound. What ‘The Fall Of Hearts’ may bring, is yet uncertain, however, one may assume that it will be following the natural progression of their sonority.
