Katatonia - Announce Silje Wergeland As Guest Vocalist On New Album


Swedish alternative rockers Katatonia are currently working on a new album and follow-up to 2009's Night Is The New Day. The band has now checked in with the following announcement about a guest vocalist appearing on the album: "Remember we revealed there would be a guest on the new album making a duet with Jonas on one of the songs? We're proud to give you her name now, our friend Silje Wergeland, currently the singer in The Gathering. A beautiful fit in every way!"

Recently, rumours circulated online that the new album would be titled Born From Nothing, which were promptly denied by the band: "It seems someone got their april fools date mixed up a month too late as they claimed 'Born From Nothing' is confirmed to be the new Katatonia album title. We can hereby deny this is not the new album title and none of us ever claimed it to be. What this title actually comes from is simply a web banner for 4 limited shirts we've been doing this spring and that's all there is to that. But... The good news is that the actual confirmed official album title will be revealed at the end of this month, and we advise you to keep checking Katatonia's Facebook page from now on as the title will actually slowly emerge there in puzzle pieces and some of your might make it out before others do."

The new album should be out this September, according to a banner the band posted on their Facebook page.

My Twin is a great song but there's so much filler, and the adoption of that horrible mechanical, sterile pseudo-metal tone/sound was not pleasing to mine ears. They should go back to the more rock-ish sound of Viva.


It does have many fillers but also some tracks I really really like. Maybe because it was my first Katatonia album but I listen to them from time to time and still enjoy them. Leaders, Deliberation, My Twin and my personal favorite In The White are great songs imo. The rest is hit or miss. I also noticed now that you mentioned it that the sound itself is quite sterile, which makes me sad.

Yeah there's definitely some very good tracks on it (can't remember what ones they are though).

The live setting (Live Consternation) seems to improve them a little when it comes to sound.

I might be called crazy for this but I must be one of the few people out there who prefers their new stuff in comparison to their old stuff. I enjoy their old stuff too but Viva Emptiness and beyond are my favourites.

Wasn't pointing out a specific post

Maybe I approach music differently these days but I try to judge every release without comparing it to the bands back catalogue. Sometimes you just have a accept bands need to experiment and do something different.

Nice to hear about Silje lending her voice to Katatonia. I do admit I haven't had any time nor interest to check their post-Viva Emptiness work but this might even motivate me to pick this band up again. The duet of Jonas Renkse and Anneke van Giersbergen was wonderful on Ayreon's 010101 album, tho...
