I love this band, I also really like their collaboration with Mikael Akerfeldt. Instant win in my book. - IronSabbathPriest

Katatonia's early work was extremely influential for death-doom. They aren't death-doom anymore of course, but they had 2 albums and 3 EPs that featured this sound. Some of which had MIKAEL ÅKERFELDT from OPETH doing harsh vocals along with Jonas Renkse's clean vocals. Amazing - ryanrimmel
