KATATONIA - SOUNDS OF DECAY

(Avantgarde 1997)

Mikael Åkerfeldt Lead vocals

I was almost like a full time member during this time. Opeth wasn't doing so well, and I had all the free time there was. When asked to do the vocals for this one, there was no hesitation. We actually recorded 2 versions of this 3 track ep. The first was a lot more brutal than the version that got released. To this day I regret that Katatonia didn't use that first version as I think it's a lot better. Still a great ep from a great band.
