More information: City Burials is the band’s eleventh studio album and its first since 2016’s haunting The Fall of Hearts. With the winds of a new direction steering the band on their latest journey, City Burials represents the fruits of a rejuvenating and profound chapter in the band’s legacy; a catalyst for its creators, with a collection of moments constructed out of the fragments of an ever-evolving life.
Inspired by an injection of fresh blood into Katatonia’s creative brew, ‘City Burials’ is an album that sees the band reclaim part of their heavy metal roots, via several moments of exuberant, old school classicism, deftly woven into these new songs’ kaleidoscopic fabric.
CD in digipak with 16-page booklet with artwork by Lasse Hoile.
