Three years after the great, but surprising, "Viva Emptiness", Katatonia is back with their 7th releases the "The Great Cold Distance". Always with this really particular sound, but with some new sonority too, "The Great Cold Distance" will probably be a real success. Will it be right? Do they really deserve success with this new album? I think so, because no doubt that Katatonia did something nice, one more time; with this new album…

It's a good album but there's some filler and the production doesn't really suits that well. Sounds way too cold and clinical... Not Katatonia-like. Would easily take LFDGD and VE over this one. But it's at least better than the latest one and the one before. Songs like Leaders, Deliberation and In The White are pretty awesome but unfortunately there are songs like Soil's Song, Increase or Consternation which are quite a snore fest at some points.

I remember writing this when 'The great cold Distance' was basically the only album I ever heard from katatonia. Now having heard 'all katatonia albums I feel as if this album is slightly overhyped. I'll listen to it some time soon to change my rating, because listening to the songs with a little more focus it seems that they don't match up to the likes of 'Brave Murder Day' or 'Viva Emptiness'. I can't think of a single shit katatonia album though...

Thanks, but that's vinyl. Not CD, unfortunately
