Serenade Me, Sinister

Using the Horror/Macabre gallery to bring you music and mayhem, this week I will lull you to sleep (or to kill) with Katatonia.

Katatonia is a Swedish metal band formed in Stockholm in 1991 by Jonas Renkse (formerly aka Lord Seth) and Anders Nyström (formerly aka Blakkheim).

The band has 8 studio albums, 2 live albums 7 EP's, 3 demo's, 5 singles, and 6 compilations. On December 31st, 2011, the band announced they would begin recording a new album in early 2012, as well as working on a DVD titled "Last Fair Day Gone Night".

The early Katatonia albums are sometimes, along with albums by bands such as My Dying Bride, Anathema and Paradise Lost, considered forerunners of the death/doom genre.

The band has expressed that their music has been influenced by bands such as The Cure, Fields of the Nephilim, and Joy Division.

Evidence - Katatonia:

I hold my breath and check the time
One minute no collapse
If you only knew what I would do for you
One thirty breathing lapse

We're going in my voice is thin
When I tell you to remember
That no one will find you
My promise from the heart
If we part my pulse will guide you through


Be still for a moment
Everything depends upon you
If you die I will die too
Once we were heroes
But everything has changed since then
Now they recognize you too

You Can't See My Nightmares by TwiggyTeeluck

I stay too long something's wrong
You walk out of the picture
I hold my breath and check the time
One thirty I collapse
We went in my voice was thin
When I told you to remember

I'm the evidence
You passed the test and that's so good for you
O love will you read the letters I will send to you
Will I come along
Will they let me out to take the test
O love is the score enough for me to pass the test

This is so awesome! (as i'm sure you new i would comment) Love it, love it, love it.
Side note: if you've never listened to Fields of the Nephilim, you really should; as a Katatonia fan, i know you would enjoy it at least this much:
