No matter how brightly the sun shines, sorrow will always cast its ageless shadow across the human soul. Expressing that eternal sadness is an art in itself, and over the last two decades since their formation in 1991, Sweden’s masters of melancholy Katatonia have firmly established themselves as the most passionate and skilful exponents of the form. Their latest release, Dead End Kings, is their ninth studio album to date, and cements their place as the cream of the crop in their doom metal field. The band are to embark on a UK tour this December, stopping in at O2 Academy Islington, O2 Academy Newcastle, and Fleece, and tickets are on sale now. (Last updated: 10/08/12)
