Le meilleur Katatonia pour moi. Cet album est plus "black" que les plus récents, avec des titres très sombres, et une voix très gutturale. L'atmosphère est envoutante, avec alternance de riff plombés bien doom et des passages de guitares très mélancoliques et envoutants. A posséder pour tout fan du groupe et de musiques sombres

Cet album reste pour moi le meilleur (avec l'EP Sounds of Decay) de Katatonia. Les vocals de Mickael Akerfeldt (Opeth) sont envoûtants : tout comme la musique...
Un album à posseder absolument si vous êtes un admirateur de ce groupe unique.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Amazing 26 août 2001
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: CD
While I a normally listen to more technical music than Katatonia, such as Meshuggah or Cynic, I felt that, theoretically, minimalism could be also employed for powerful artistic expression. When I got this album I realized that my theory had been proven, and I am very grateful for it. I love the simple, straightforward playing nearly all in eighth notes because it lends an amazing continuity to the album. However, while the playing is minimal, the songwriting is not. Granted, riffs are repeated several times, allowing you to feel immersed in their plaintive churning, but songs on Brave Murder Day can be found full of interesting key and tempo changes. The song structures themselves are also not at all standard, except for "Day" which is not radically standard, but relatively normal compared to the others. From what I have heard of Katatonia's other albums, I have a feeling this will be by far my favorite, mainly because of the amazing presence of Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth. His voice could be categorized as death metal, but he uses it as a beautiful texture to layer over the instruments. He can hold a growl for a very long time, fading into amazing waves of white noise. As opposed to expressing singleminded fury, his singing sounds very sorrowful and vulnerable. I would recommend this album to anyone, especially if they were feeling very depressed, because although sad, it lends consolation in the fact that someone had to be at least as depressed as anyone else to create an album of such despondent majesty, and they can share your feelings.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Choice music for a rainy day (or night). 13 décembre 2003
Par Lord Chimp - Publié sur
Format: CD
This is the album where Katatonia nailed the sound of their dark, depressing metal. As far as I can tell, they have done nothing better than _Brave Murder Day_, before nor since. I also find it quite accessible compared to their other works.
This is an album truly greater than the sum of its parts. Distant, simple production, elementary guitar melodies and riffs that would probably look very dry on paper, drums and bass that are entirely bereft of frills and serving the purely utilitarian purpose of rhythmic anchor -- overall, it would seem like rather basic, amateurish stuff. And yet the end results are really amazing. Firstly, the atmosphere of this album -- generated by the melodic quality of the riffs, the dreary production sound, cold sterile rhythm section, and despondent sludgy walls of guitar -- is incredibly arresting. It is the synaesthesia of gray, which is coterminous with its sense of being "rainy day" music (listening to this album is greatly complemented by proper environment). Also the songs are perfectly executed through their structure. Songs tend to be relatively long, usually 6+ minutes, flowing through 'movements' rather than verses and choruses. Usually a key theme is repeated to resolve the song and bring a degree of added emotional clarity. The whole album is characterized by its highly economical, mood-intensive arrangements. Even though different sections may not be related to others musically, the overall emotional flow and mood-sustaining arc makes it very effective. In "Brave", the beginning and end of the piece is a riff that is almost overwrought and 'washing,' and yet when it returns at the resolution of the song it is haunting and powerful both because of its familiarity and because of the sense of resolution it brings. The starry 4/4 sprinkled guitar notes of the middle section, melodic metal frame, and the intense performance of Mikael Akerfeldt all enhance the power of the song's flow. Of course, it is also very important that Akerfeldt does the growled vocals on this album. The album is about 80% growling and this is possibly the best vocal performance of Akerfeldt (from Opeth, by the way, if you don't know) that I have heard to date. Tormented, emotive, and raw, he is integral to this album's success. The other songs aren't really worth describing entirely, since they are basically just variations on the theme, so to speak, but they are all effective, especially the distinctive loud-soft dynamics of "12" (although it's a bit of overkill on the last riff there). One track is notably different: "Day", where the band makes one of the most hypnotic metal 'ballads' out of relatively pedestrian Pod-ish guitar effects, basic chord progressions, a singer who sounds like he's about to keel over and die, and a dry static drum machine beat. "Endtime" uses some voice samples effectively, backed by ashen, somber arpeggios.
I have the version of _Brave Murder Day_ which also sports the EP _For Funerals to Come..._, which is an excellent complement to the main cd. "Funeral Weddings" and "Shades of Emerald Fields" are epic, melodic, and dreary. Unfortunately they have a few cheesy Iron Maiden-ish riffs that don't totally gel with the band's mood, but for the most part it works beautifully. The EP's title track is a mellow piece with clean electric guitar and some subtle background synths. "Epistel" is a basic noise experiment.
_Brave Murder Day_ is a fine accomplishment. If you don't like the growly vocals though, one might prefer to stick with Katatonia's albums from _Discouraged Ones_ forward (no growls, more 'gothic' sounding).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The indisputable Katatonia masterpiece 5 avril 2006
Par Murat Batmaz - Publié sur
Format: CD
Some fans were extremely disappointed after Katatonia decided to explore more alternative yet equally dark areas after releasing the Sounds of Decay EP (which was basically the counterpart of Brave Murder Day). I personally believe after creating a masterpiece like this, there was nothing left for them to achive in this genre, so they decided to pursue more depressing music with all clean vocals, distinguishing themselves from hundreds of other bands. It would be best to think of Katatonia in two phases: their earlier doom-death period with albums like Dance of December Souls and Brave Murder Day as well as several EPs, and their more recent starting with the release of Discouraged Ones. Both eras of the bands are amazing, though I feel Brave Murder Day will always remain as most people's number one album.

For their second full-length album, the band decided to enlist the help of their friend Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth to do the vocals, since Jonas Renkse was unable to produce any harsh vocals at the time. I've always argued that Brave Murder Day contains Mikael Akerfeldt's best vocal peformance (outside Opeth that is), as he's never sung with so much pain and emotion before or after. He sure has improved a lot over the years, both as a growler and clean singer, but his vocals on this album are unparalleled.

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). The growls on the piece are low and sound extremely tortured, climaxing during the line that says, "Wherever you are I am not". That is possibly Mikael Akerfeldt's longest and most emotional scream ever recorded. Add to this Blackheim's haunting guitar melody that keeps churning forever. Thus, a doom-death metal masterpiece is complete. "Murder" is perhaps the most simple cut on the album. Only half as long, slowly strummed guitar chords and a repetitive melody bring the piece an added clarity while Akerfeldt delivers the lyrics with utmost conviction.

"Day" features Jonas Renkse's clean voice from start to finish. Since Renkse played the drums on Brave Murder Day, they decided to use a static drum machine for this particular song. The guitars are repetitive in a hypnotic fashion. Granted Renkse has come a long way as singer over the last years (particularly from Last Fair Deal Gone Down onwards), his vocals on this track are very emotive and the "Let's stay here for a while" chorus is infectious. On the final track "Endtime", Renkse and Akerfeldt sing together, with Akerfeldt doing the growls (do I have to repeat you've never heard him growl like this before?) and Renkse the clean vocals. Mostly acoustic, the song bears effective guitar waves and a solemn, gloomy pace. On the other hand, "Rainroom" has a nice yet dark acoustic interlude and a very powerful guitar theme. "12" is the album's most progressive number, and in many ways similar to the first two Opeth albums, particularly Morningrise. The Dan Swano influence is impossible to overlook here, as the songs goes through several movements, ignoring any conventional songwriting formulas. The intro of this song is simply fantastic: utterly dark, it even destroys the smallest glimpse of hope. Huge, cascading doom riffs explode only to reinvent themselves with ever-changing chord progressions (though it's all done so subtly that you may not understand anything upon first listen).

If you get the re-release of Brave Murder Day, you'll also hear the For Funerals to Come EP, consisting of four tracks, featuring original singer Jonas Renkse. This is a great EP with some great songs, but Renkse's harsh vocals simply pale in comparison to Akerfeldt's, both on this album and its successor: the Sounds of Decay EP.

All in all, this album is easily a milestone in doom-death and quite possibly the favourite album of most Katatonia fans.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Katatonia's finest moment. Hypnotic, emotional and beautiful! 25 février 2007
Par Ben Stubbs - Publié sur
Format: CD
This is it. It's Katatonia's finest moment in what is a fantastic musical career. I think it's the album where they really found their perfect sound and clicked as a band. Everything the band released previously, while very good, had moments of awkwardness and imperfection. Everything they've released since, while fairly incomparable due to its difference in style (the "Sounds of Decay" EP excluded) simply cannot match this album for emotional depth and exquisite beauty.

Every time I put "Brave Murder Day" on it captivates me. The band utilizes minor keys consistently to grasp at my emotions and beautiful harmonies that make me feel like weeping with happiness. They use hypnotic repetitious themes to get under my skin, and then various interludes and slight changeups to hold me in a state of trance-like rapture.

Blackheim and Fredrik's guitar work is absolutely awesome. Their mid paced riffing and lead work is what makes "Brave Murder Day" work so astoundingly well. They manage to create an extremely dark and desperate mood, without ever plodding into boredom territory. Borrowing Mikael Akerfeldt from Opeth for vocal duties, whom I consider to be one of metal's best vocalists, only adds to the brilliance with his tortured guttural outbursts taking their previous sound to a totally new level. Jonas' drumming deserves mention also. While he never reaches high levels of technicality, he proves that less is more when it comes to death / doom metal, adding minor double bass sections and cymbal variances regularly, yet at all the right times to be effective.

If you have even the slightest tendencies towards doomy death metal, then "Brave Murder Day" is a completely essential album, sitting at the very top of the genre alongside My Dying Bride and Saturnus. It also stands as one of my very favourite albums of any genre...ever! Future Katatonia albums would travel a different path (one less aggressive, yet still filled with loss and despair), which I can only see as a fairly decent decision, as it would be futile to even attempt to make a better album in this style than "Brave Murder Day".

Note : When "Brave Murder Day" was originally released, it surprisingly had not been mastered at all. It has finally been mastered for this 2006 digipak version and while it's not hugely different sounding, the result is a positive one. As a bonus, it also contains the three tracks off the "Sounds of Decay" EP. It's suitable to find these tracks alongside "Brave Murder Day" as they contain a very similar sound and also include Mikael Akerfeldt on vocals. If you don't own either of these releases, then I suggest you snap this up immediately. If you own "Brave Murder Day" already but not "Sounds of Decay", then I suggest getting the "Brave Yester Days" compilation instead which contains all three tracks plus a whole bunch more.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Strangely powerful - an album for Fall, and rain 24 novembre 2009
Par The Pitiful Anonymous - Publié sur
Format: CD
What's this? Metal that never once tries to sound 'tough'; it's melancholic, forlorn in that windswept black metal way that feels like so cold, but with the none of the "evil" or the posturing. It's a thick, textured wall of sound, but there is no real aggression. Rough, raw, and low budget but strangely restrained... the band never plays faster than mid-paced, the playing is subdued, simple and tasteful, almost as if out of respect for some kind of loss or death.

If you liked the youthful, emotive, overwhelmed feeling of the first two Opeth records, you must have this immediately. Rarely do such sensitive, romantic artists (with not a violent bone in their bodies) end up creating metal. This album is simpler than "Morningrise" or "Orchid", though, and also even more rainy in feeling. The fat is trimmed off, but it's no less of a cathartic experience. It's really amazing what they can do with a few simple chords strummed in a straight ahead 4/4 rhythm. Beautiful, haunting leads appear often as well. The album is driven by the sound of the guitar. The distortion is warm and thick, but never harsh, and envelops you like the womb. Mikael Akerfeldt of the aforementioned Opeth handles the harsher vocals. His performance is pushed to the back of the mix, which is perfect for this kind of music. His hollow mid-frequencies growls have the same pained immediacy they had on "Morningrise", and with this he easily compensates for anything he might have lacked in polish and throat control at this time in his career.

The reverberant, chorused ballad "Day" foreshadows the melancholic alt rock the band has made ever since they abandoned metal with 3rd album Discouraged Ones. Their later, non-metal material really does possess the same mood as this early material, and it's obvious the band had already been exposed to the gothic, chronic depression of The Cure and others at this point in time. These days, though, the band often takes the easy way out with tired verse/chorus/verse song structures. On "Brave Murder Day", the songs average between 5 and 10 minutes, and develop through many beautiful harmonized sections. Because of this "Brave Murder Day" may always be the band's most mature and ambitious statement, and their crowning achievement.

The heavier tracks are all stylistically similar, which in this case is a good thing, as it nicely creates a strong sense of unifying theme. All the tracks are solid. There's the eerily nostalgic supernatural fire and beautiful clean guitar tones of the closer "Endtime", the plodding relentlessness of the 10 minute "Brave"...

In conclusion, this is a fantastic album that crosses several subgenres, from symphonic black metal to melo-death to melancholic alternative rock. If you like your metal more emotive and sentimental, need an album for the Fall months or just can't get enough of Opeth's "Morningrise", you need this album. Really, anyone who appreciates metal that goes for musicality rather than sheer speed or brutality should check it out. It's a true gem. 5 stars.
