3.5 greatKyle Ward EMERITUS | April 19th 14

Take this for what it is: a limited-edition vinyl containing a collection of b-sides from the past 8 years released exclusively for record store day. The layout of the artwork and packaging is phenomenal - perhaps the greatest artwork of any Katatonia release - and the songs are crisp, evocative tunes ranging from the mellow (and I daresay genius) "Unfurl" to the more aggressive "Ashen", and everywhere in between. It shows evolution of sound in a very clear light, with the differences between years audible in the riffing and vocals. The best part is that these b-sides are all incredibly solid, efficient cuts that form a chronology of a band that has transitioned more in the past few years than many people realize, giving this limited-edition release more purpose than a record store day exclusive would lead you to believe.

4.0 excellentXenorazr CONTRIBUTOR | March 3rd 17

Katatonia's most comprehensive and modern-sounding EP, Kocytean shows a side to them that they've kept surprisingly dormant, a side that favors the calm and mellow to the crushing and potent. This is a more natural-sounding Katatonia, the kind that is accessible to newcomers but a definite treat for those who've missed out on bonus material over nearly a decade's worth of work.
