KATATONIA DANCE OF DECEMBER SOULS Limited Gatefold 180gram Heavyweight Vinyl 2LP Set

Katatonia's 1993 debut album of supreme gothic metal – presented on double 180gm gatefold vinyl. 'Dance of December Souls' was the debut album from Katatonia, who have since risen to the forefront of the gothic metal genre. Katatonia was formed in Stockholm, Sweden in 1991 by Jonas Renkse and Anders Nyström. The album was recorded at Unisound Studios, April 1993 and released later that same year. Engineering and mixing was handled by Dan Swano (Opeth, Marduk, Dissection). This early incarnation of Katatonia contained a more doom/black metal approach, whilst always keeping the trademark sorrowful & hypnotic guitar melodies which are still evident today. The album exudes an atmosphere of utter melancholy, accentuated by the growled, despairing vocals of Jonas. Katatonia quickly became part of the leaders of the gothic doom movement alongside top UK acts Paradise Lost, My Dying Bride and Anathema. This release also includes 5 bonus tracks in the shape of the first Katatonia release, the cult classic and hard to find 'Jhva Elohim Meth' EP which preceded the album in early 1993. These songs were recorded at Gorysound Studios, July 1992, also engineered and mixed by Dan Swano. This edition of 'Dance of December Souls' is presented on double 180gm black vinyl with gatefold sleeve.
