3.5 greatXenorazr CONTRIBUTOR | February 6th 17

For an EP, this is all over the place. The title track is an excellent number from Night is the New Day, rich with crushing instrumental work. Meanwhile, Sold Heart slows way down, immediately selling the opening lyrics so much, it's impossible to avoid feeling despondent. The remaining tracks are electronic-heavy reprises of Day and the Shade and Idle Blood, with the results being a monumentally mixed bag, particularly the videogame-like notes for Day and the Shade, which are sandwiched between poignant stretches which highlight Jonas' voice. As a whole, it's a bizarre affair by Katatonia's standards, and not likely to appeal to much of their fanbase. But it does offer an interesting take on tracks that we might never hear or even think to consider, which makes them curious if un-resounding.

The Longest Year is a fantastic song from Night Is The New Day, and Sold Heart is a
beautiful addition to the latest Katatonia collection. The remixes are nothing special
however, and fail to live up to the quality of the originals. The EP will be released in a
re-release of NITND, along with the fantastic Swedish bonus track, Ashen. It will be well
worth getting this when it becomes available.
