Katatonia share second single and music video


Mathias Blom

Official press release:

With eleven full-length records under their belts, Swedish melancholic metal masters Katatonia don't need to prove anything to anyone. Yet, it comes as no surprise that the band is about to impressively solidify their unique stance in the world of metal and beyond once more with their 12th album, the hauntingly beautiful Sky Void of Stars.

Today, Katatonia unveil the second single and Sky Void of Stars' album opener "Austerity", along with a visually palpable video. The heartfelt offering crashes through the dark with memorable, mind-bending rhythms as it shifts with elaborate guitar riffs that perfectly showcase the musical expertise and experience of the band. Topped off by the dark, conjuring voice of Jonas Renkse and mesmerizing lyricism, the gloomy mood for the album is set. The song is now available via all digital service providers worldwide.


The band shared the following:

We hereby present you our new single and the opening track of Sky Void of Stars – 'Austerity'. Energetic and dark, stern and disenchanted. Enjoy.

I hope they're ashamed they made this. I hope it keeps them up at night. And even when they can sleep, I hope it haunts their dreams that they made and released this pile of sh!t
