Revered masters of melancholy for nearly 30 years, Katatonia have always pursued a profound emotional connection with their music and those who listen to it. Formed in Stockholm in 1991 by now vocalist Jonas Renkse and guitarist Anders Nyström, this most free-spirited of modern metal bands have taken a slow and steady but endless fascinating journey from primitive beginnings in the extreme metal underground to their current status as darlings of both the metal world and the progressive rock scene
Twilight Burials' - UK & European tour 2022
Katatonia & Solstafir will head out in January and February 2022 on a 31 date co-headline tour of the UK and Europe.
The coming together of these two revered masters of melancholy seems only natural. For over a quarter of a century both artists have favoured the emotional connection that their music brings over all else. Theirs is a world where 'heavy' is a force of nature; where progress comes from within, outwardly changing their musical output into something almost unrecognisable from the extreme metal that carried it in the early days.The BBC's description of Katatonia's "grandiose, majestic beauty" seems appropriate for both artists. It's no coincidence that The Guardian's take on Solstafir is equally apt: "total immersion is compulsory".
