9 thoughts on “ Lethean - Katatonia - Dead End Kings (CD, Album)

  1. A video was made for "Lethean", directed by Lasse Hoile. Katatonia released a partly re-recorded, mostly acoustic version of this album, as "Dethroned & Uncrowned" in "The One You Are Looking for Is Not Here" is a lyric line from "Walking by a Wire" on "Viva Emptiness". "Lethean" means forgetful.
  2. Mid-price cd edition of Katatonia's album. A logical continuation of 's panoramic 'Night is the New Day', 'Dead End Kings' contains Katatonia's most poignant and ambitious material to date.
  3. Anders Nyström and Jonas Renkse took care of the album production themselves, while David Castillo, well known for his previous alliances with Katatonia, as well as Opeth and Bloodbath, was the man behind the album mix. ‘Dead End Kings’ saw the recording debut of guitarist Per Eriksson for the band, together with the new bassist Niklas Sandin.
  4. Katatonia have spent the past four years since the release of Dead End Kings touring the world, as well as expanding their fanbase through two special albums on Kscope, the sister label of Peaceville. saw the release of Dethroned & Uncrowned which exploded the core of the songs on Dead End Kings creating new moods and textures.
  5. Peaceville has a Special Limited Book Edition of Katatonias Dead End Kings New Release. This Limited Edition comes packaged in a 40 page 10 inch book with a certificate. The set contains Dead End Kings on two pieces of 10 inch vinyl, the CD with 2 bonus tracks, and DVD-A/V (NTSC region 0) with mix (DTS). This edition is Limited to 2, /5().
  6. Lethean Katatonia. Album Dead End Kings. Lethean Lyrics. How long is the pattern going to speak for you? How far can your voice reach? Your song below the night.
  7. When Sweden's Katatonia released the nearly conceptual Night Is the New Day in , there was little doubt that they had nearly transcended metal -- despite the fact that they engaged in thundering heaviness at will. Dead End Kings is a further exploration of the deeply atmospheric, melodic brand of "dark rock" offered on the earlier recording, but where the former was so focused on being an 8/
  8. Then it was BUILDINGS, THE RACING HEART, DEAD LETTERS, then HYPNONE. About a week and a half after I got Dead End Kings I thought it was as good as any CD going back to Last Fair Deal Gone Down. LETHEAN and THE RACING HEART (I believe) are two of the best Katatonia songs I've ever heard and I can't imagine a Katatonia fan being disappointed.
