This three song EP sees Katatonia staying true to the formula found on their previous album, Brave Murder Day, where the band relied on minimalist song structures as a foundation for their themes of solitude and isolation.
The same lineup is present here, with Mikael from Opeth once again handling harsh vocals, which would mean all of the vocals on this EP. For the first time Katatonia would record outside of Dan Swano's Unisound, namely Sunlight Studios with Tomas Skogsberg. And it is the production that really makes an impact on first listen of this disc, as Katatonia's sound would be given a healthy amount of power and heaviness, most noticeable in the drums, where the bass drum can actually be felt as well as heard. The guitars are given a thickness that they've never really had and the whole presentation is very live sounding and heavy.

Rating: 10 There may only be three songs here, but this is one hell of a good way to follow an album as ambitious and atmospheric as 'brave murder day'. Mikael Akerfeldt does vocals (which may prove to some as a distinctive highlight), but i believe the real talent here is found within the guitar work.

  "At Last" actually is the climax of their 'distorted voice' -era.

Rating: 7 Very good EP, lots of great guitar work and excellent growls courtesy of Mikael Akerfeldt. "Inside the Fall" is a highlight for me, I especially love the intro and outro to the song specifically.

  The response from the newer generations just feels so bad.

Never know how:



I Myself have always been inside the fall, it'a probably my next thing too. ---. Hail melancholy, hail true-self, hail human nature.

AT LAST
