Music Monday: Dethroned and Uncrowned

triangle, bizarre
Today's the release of Katatonia's Dethroned and Uncrowned, an ambient/acoustic reworking of their album Dead End Kings, which they crowd-funded through pledgemusic.

I pledged to the project, but I honestly wasn't sure how it would turn out. Having heard about half the album so far, I'd say it works better than I'd have thought, although I expect that when the novelty has worn off, I'll still prefer the original versions of most of the tracks.

Here's the song "Buildings," which I think is one of the more drastic reworkings - the original is largely powered by a rather stomping electric guitar riff, while the reworking is all floaty keyboards and acoustic guitars.
