Neither Norway: Black Death and Afterlife

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

I was warned. "Watch out for the death metal," said my muso friends when I told them I was off to the wilds of Norway for a rock festival – as if I could somehow be mortally wounded by shards of satanic shrapnel. But when I arrived in Bergen, on the west coast of the country, supposedly the wettest place in Europe with over 200 days of rain each year, the sun shone brightly and… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Tonight’s Decision continues in the song-oriented direction of 1998′s Discouraged Ones, but with an even greater emphasis on verse-chorus-verse songwriting. The guitars churn more heavily than on that album and the drums are a little more aggressive; however, the production is slicker on the whole, almost to the point of sounding ready for mainstream rock radio. Jonas Renske’s vocals are again cleanly sung (as opposed to growled), and he has even added a falsetto to his arsenal. In other words, this album is a pretty far cry from the black metal-leaning style of their earlier records. On the other hand, the depressive melodies and lyrics are pure Katatonia, and the songwriting is solid throughout: “Black Session,” “For My Demons,” and “Right Into the Bliss” hold their own next to the cover of Jeff Buckley’s “Nightmares by the Sea.” It won’t please fans hoping for the band to return to their earlier style, but taken on its own terms, Tonight’s Decision is still a strong record, and one which suggests that greater commercial success isn’t out of the question for these melancholy Swedes. – William York
