The Details: Katatonia is truly a band of experts when it comes to bringing intense levels of melancholy and atmosphere to their music and of course their live shows. I’ve caught them a number of times over the years and have been impressed each and every time. Their latest album is entitled “Dethroned and Uncrowned” and thankfully they will be hitting NYC hard with a show at Irving Plaza. They’ll be joined by Cult Of Luna, Tesseract and Intronaut so it’s clear that entertainment is high on the docket for this one. Now thanks to the awesome folks at Livenation, some lucky PiercingMetal fans will be seeing this show for absolutely free. Read more below on how this works.
When and Where: Tuesday September 24th @ Irving Plaza (17 Irving Place NYC)
To Participate: I’ve viewed what Katatonia does to the music psyche of their fans and well, I guess the best way to get you all involved is to ask you to tell me three reflections that you have about the band in concert, or from listening to their body of work or perhaps even if you chanced upon meeting the members and discussing the ponderings of Socrates. Give me something to run with and remember you have to put three. Putting two good ones does not help nor do one or two word replies. Sorry. I will be answering what I felt were the most compelling views and posting a comment right below their own.
