KATATONIA Resume Recording New Album

Sweden's KATATONIA have re-entered Fascination Street studio, located in the outskirts of Örebro, Sweden, to resume recording their new album, tentatively due in early 2006 via Peaceville Records. The band have posted the following recording update on their official web site:

"After a few needed breaks, including a kick ass visit at the Wacken festival with one of our side projects (BLOODBATH), we put ourselves under house arrest down the studio again. During these last weeks of early mornings and late nights, all the clean/lead guitars, loops, percussion and keyboards were finished. Currently, we're halfways through the last stage, recording vocals in studio B while the mix is running hot in studio A. It's taken all summer, but the most heavy, beautiful and professionally sounding album we've ever done is finally about to become full circle."

KATATONIA's last album, "Viva Emptiness", was released in 2003.

As previously reported, The End Records recently licensed through their sub-label Infinite Vinyl series KATATONIA's "Saw You Drown" — a mini album from 1998 that collectors regard as maybe the rarest and most-wanted item in KATATONIA's discography. The vinyl version is limited to 1,000 copies, all hand-numbered. It also features an unreleased band photo, lyrics to all songs, plus personal liner notes from the band.
