Katatonia - Dead End Kings
Record Label: Peaceville
Release Date: August 27, 2012
Dead End Kings continues Katatonia’s gloomy musical path by treading in familiar ground. Sounding similar to past two releases The Great Cold Distance and Night is the New Day, Dead End Kings takes the best of both albums and throws in some lighter Prog for good measure. At first listen the album comes off as a letdown, featuring some slower melodies and a song or two that doesn’t quite take hold with the listener until the fifth or sixth listen. "The One You Are Looking for is Not Here" is one of these songs. A lighter track from the album featuring harmonies from Silje Wergeland
