      Disadvantages

      Katatonia's third album (1998).

      Katatonia's third album marks the point at which the band abandoned doom metal in favour of a more commercially accessible depressive rock direction, but accusations of selling out are unfounded in light of the high quality and integrity of 'Discouraged Ones.' The guitar work still dominates in a similar manner to the previous 'Brave Murder Day,' and this is essentially a natural continuation of that style, dropping the growled vocals and editing the songs to more convenient lengths.

      It's difficult to pick out specific songs here, as most are quite similar, and identifiable largely by each distinctive guitar melody that Blackheim chooses to lead the way with. Some songs are still quite heavy, namely 'Nerve,' but the new direction is entirely successful, not yet giving over to bland pop elements as would be the case in subsequent albums. The choruses are heartfelt and energetic, matching the intensity of the repeating guitar chords elsewhere, and it's guaranteed that several of the hypnotic guitar lines will haunt you for days to come.
