Katatonia entered the music industry by releasing their first EP titled “Jhva Elohim Meth… The Revival.” It was followed by their debut studio album named “Dance of December Souls.” From their very first album they were recognized as a band with an overall aura of melancholy and sadness about them. In 1995 they hit the market once again with an EP consisting of four tracks titled “For Funerals to Come” which added even further to their image of gloom and death meal. After the release of the EP their band member Le Hunch left. Because of that, for a whole year, the band took a hiatus in order to find a permanent lineup.
Katatonia was revived by Renkse with the help of Fredrick Norman a year later. The next year the leading vocalist Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth sang Brave Murder Day for the band with his growling voice. His strong vocals contributed a lot to the overall success of the band’s revival. In 1994, the band recorded Scarlet Heavens, and later decided not to release it because it included too softer a tone for their impression to the world. However, in 1996 it was released. In the tour that followed these back to back releases, the band found a wider fan base, although in between Renkse fell ill and was temporarily replaced.
In the start of 1998, Katatonia released “Discouraged One” with Avantgarde Music, their very first album that only included clear vocals, unlike their growling gothic style. It was released in collaboration with Mikael Oretoft and was also the very last album of theirs that featured drums by Renkse, because after that he became a permanent vocalist. The album managed to sell around 20,000 copies within the United States and was compiled of eight songs. On a whole, it managed to receive positive reviews from the critics and the fans.
Katatonia continued to release new albums and kept on touring with intervals of one year or so every now and then. “The Great Cold Distance” came out in 2006 accompanied by singles July, Deliberation and My Twin. Their performance during the Summer Breeze Festival was recorded and later released in 2007 by the name of “Live Consternation.’ For the very first time in their history, the band faced songwriting issues in the time between The Great Cold Distance and “Night Is The New Day” (which was released in 2009) According to Blakkheim, the material they had been writing in the past wasn’t up to the mark and they needed to change that. He mentioned writers block and too much pressure as the reason.
Despite the artistic crises, in 2009 Night Is the New Day was released and it managed to receive critical acclaim. In 2012, the band announced that they will be devoting their time in the studio and would not be touring until the release of their next album name “Dead End Kings” which was later released in August of the same year. “Dead Ends Of Europe” Tour that followed was a huge success which also included Junius and Alcent. Now the band is embarking on yet another tour with their gloomy music, gothic vocals and over all intensely sad aura about them.
