Swedish melancholic metal band Katatonia has announced their plans to release a stripped down version of their last album Dead End Kings (review) entitled Dethroned & Uncrowned. There is a tentative release date of September 9th.
The band states, “it’s our wish to release the entire album in a stripped down, semi-acoustic way and turn things around completely,” adding, “…the drums will be dethroned and the distorted rhythm guitars will be uncrowned! Instead, we’ll place the emphasis on the many layers of ambience, with the melodies staying central and the vocal harmonies representing the heart of the album.”
The band has launched a Pledge Music page where fans can pledge a certain amount and get different perks based upon their pledge level.
I am a huge fan of this band and I thought Dead End Kings was one of the strongest releases of 2012. I’m very intrigued and more than a little excited to hear this album.
