Green Carnation – Leaves Of Yesteryear

The earnest progressive metal group Green Carnation unveil ‘Leaves of Yesteryear,’ the first new music from the band in 14 years. More approachable than the Norwegian’s work in the metal bands In the Woods, Emperor, and Tristania; their unpretentious, punchy and smart sound appeals to broad swaths of the rock community. As the first part of the act’s second trilogy, ‘Leaves of Yesteryear,’ serves as both a retrospective look at the band’s storied career while setting the foundation for their future.

Katatonia – City Burials

“City Burials” encompasses that eloquent and distinct celestial quality that has been staple to KATATONIA’s essence for years. The melodies remain jaw-droppingly evocative, and yet KATATONIA doesn’t ever seem likely to be able to rid themselves of that heavy element that is bound to their bones.

Here, on “City Burials”, Renkse ended up writing the majority of the album.
