Katatonia - Brave Murder Day mp3 album
Brave Murder Day is Katatonia's second full-length album, released in 1996 by Avantgarde Music. This album created a new guitar position with Fredrik Norrman's input, and features harsh vocals by Mikael Åkerfeldt of Opeth. It is also the last Katatonia LP to feature any death growls and other death metal elements.
Brave Murder Day can best be described as the middle ground between the intense Death/Doom of Dance of December Souls and the suicidal feelings of Discouraged Ones. Katatonia flirt with the best elements of all of their eras to create the best release of their entire discography. The really long song lengths of Dance of December Souls are cut down to 6-7 minutes with the longest track Brave clocking in at 10:16

Next to Discouraged Ones and Night Is The New Day! If I were to Recommend any 90's Metal album/albums. It would be Morning rise 1996. Brave Murder Day 1996. Discouraged Ones 1998. The album starts with the 10-minute "Brave", perhaps the most definitive Brave Murder Day song. Grey guitar lines slowly dissolve during tense, mournful passages thanks to the distant, simple production of Opeth's and Katatonia's earlier producer Dan Swano. The whole album is laced with repeated key themes, which show little variation on the following songs, giving the impression that they are just parts of a huge composition a la Edge of Sanity's Crimson (also featuring Mikael Akerfeldt as a guest).
Although Katatonia has completely revamped their sound in the more recent years, far from where they started at, they had in my opinion, created a masterpiece with their 1996 Opus, "Brave Murder Day". Back when they had harsh vocals in the mix, Katatonia played a Doom Metal hybrid wrapping around a solid Gothic Rock foundation, relying less on Jonas's clean singing and more on harsh screams. Unlike "The Great Cold Distance", Katatonia had produced longer songs with much more detail and adding various elements unseen from recent times towards the music
