Ahh, you reminded me of a few I forgot. The new Katatonia is excellent. Why they aren't more popular is beyond me. And when I first read Illnath, I thought it was Ishahn. His new album is excellent. I've enjoyed all of his solo albums, but this one is the best IMO. Wasn't blown away by the new Amon Amarth, but it was good. And Dillinger's first album was brilliant, but since then, I can't seem to get into them. The new one really left me flat.
I thought Katatonia was somewhat disappointing. I liked hearing the different side of DEK and it sounded great, but it was a really lazy redo considering they used the same vocal tracks and basically just swapped out some of the instruments with acoustic versions. I would have liked to have seen some more creativity.
