KATATONIA / Live Consternation (2007)

A live CD+DVD package from the Swedes. Tracks chosen are from the four previous albums only, so there's nothing prior Discøuraged Ønes (1998), which is a shame. However, it was a festival show (Summer Breeze in Germany) and not a full 80-90 min concert, so some concessions had to be made... But cutting Teargas from the set-list was unforgivable! It's a straight-up delivery with little deviation from the studio versions, so is extremely competent but also a little bland.

Songs of Note: Cold Ways; Ghost of the Sun
