00:06 - Jaeryd17 Oh, and responding to some of the posts after mine 10 pages back, Opeth played 5 songs with death growls in the concert. And they sounded pretty good, better than Royal Albert Hall, but he didn't (or couldn't) do long growls.
"After a few needed breaks, including a kick ass visit at the Wacken festival with one of our side projects, we put ourselves under house arrest down the studio again. During these last weeks of early mornings and late nights, all the clean/lead guitars, loops, percussion and keyboards were finished. Currently, we're halfway through the last stage, recording vocals in studio B while the mix is running hot in studio A. It's taken all summer, but the most heavy, beautiful and professionally sounding album we've ever done is finally about to become full circle."
"Infinite Vinyl series will be releasing the Saw You Drown on 10" LP. This is the long out of print mini album from 1998 that collectors regard as the most rare and wanted item in Katatonia's discography. The vinyl version will be limited to 1000 copies, all hand numbered and will come in blue colored vinyl. It'll also feature an unreleased band photo, lyrics for all songs, plus personal liner notes from the band. The release date has been set for April".
Anders posted the following message on Katatonia's official website:
"During the following 6 months, we'll be very busy with the making of our new album. Nevertheless, we won't be locked up in the studio the entire time as we have just confirmed 3 live dates in march - the Metal Mania festivals (http://negativeart.hu/metalmania.html), that will take place in Hungary, Czech and Poland. Other bands appearing on the bill are Cradle of Filth, Apocalyptica, Moonspell etc. This will be only opportunity to catch the band for a long time, so show up and rock with us!"
"Peaceville will be issuing a limited edition compilation entitled 'The Black Sessions' featuring selected material from the "new era" (defined 1998-2004) as opposed to the "old era" material covered in 'Brave Yester Days' at the end of January. The packaging will be a box set of two discs featuring all the single's b-sides, cover songs and selective songs off 'Discouraged Ones' up and til 'Viva Emptiness' (including one unreleased track from this recording session). There'll also be a third disc in the form of a live DVD with a Katatonia live show from April 2003 that was shot in Kracow, Poland. The layout of a 12 page booklet + poster will be handled by Travis Smith.
In an interview to antenna (antenna.nu) the Katatonia and Bloodbath member says that will be working on new Katatonia material: "My plans right now are that we're going to focus on doing the new Katatonia record this winter and hopefully next year play some live shows with Bloodbath which would be awesome but also a lot of touring with Katatonia".
And also talks about the posibility that Bloodbath plays live: "I think now that we've done two full-length album and we heard the recent demands for us playing live. We have been talking about and I think it all comes down to the members different schedules. Every one in the band got other bands but we are definitely going to try our best to play live maybe not a full tour but at least some gigs sometime next year hopefully".

Titled "Brave Yester Days" (view cover here), the double CD will feature artwork by Agni Kaster and will be released in a digipack format together with a 16-page booklet.
The artwork follows "an incredible old worn yesterdays vibe and there are many old band pictures incorporated into the layout, as well credits and lyrics to all songs," according to a post on the band's web site.
The complete track listing for "Brave Yester Days" is as follows:
KATATONIA are currently editing their first DVD, due sometime next year. A Polish Cracow gig from April 2003 will be the main attraction of the disc, but there will also be more exclusive bonus footage to go along with it. In addition, one or two of the unreleased tracks from the "Viva Emptiness" sessions will also show up on the DVD.
KATATONIA will be embarking on a Scandinavian tour with AMARAN beginning in early February. Support at the dates will come from BEFORE THE DAWN.
