About this album

Night Is The New Day is Katatonia’s eighth full-length album. It was released on 2 November 2009 in Europe and on 10 November 2009 in North America through Peaceville Records. 13 tracks were recorded, 12 of which made it onto the record.
The band describes the material as “our most varied, diverse and possibly strongest shit all together on one and the same album.” The critical reception was similarly positive, with one reviewer saying calling the record “Katatonia’s finest work to date - an album staggering in both its ambition and its accessibility, showcasing beauty and despair in equal measure.”

The song “Day and Then the Shade” was the first single to be released in late 2009. The promotional video for this song was directed by Lasse Hoile.
During the first week of this album’s release, Night Is the New Day sold more than 2,000 copies in the United States.

    As for me this album was the beginning of the end for good old Katatonia. I really enjoyed just one song - "Forsaker", which conjured up some emotions linked with the atmosphere of their previous releases. Unfortunately, the rest of this album literally fails to deliver - depressive but rather simplistic tunes devoid of any harshness and tensity. This is not the way I wanted them to develop. And the "Dead End Kings" was even more horrible for me. Sorry and alas.

    Probably Kat's best "alt. metal" offering. Really consistent from start to finish.

    @Resifreak: If this is depressive for you you better not listen to Discouraged Ones or Tonights Decision ^^
