Discs Of Doom: Katatonia's Jonas Renkse
From Kiss to Celtic Frost, the ten records that changed Jonas Renkse's life
The First Album I Bought Was…
Kiss - Killers [Phonogram, 1982]
“I think it might have been Kiss, the Killers compilation, at a second-hand record store in Stockholm. I was into Iron Maiden and wanted their Killers album but I couldn’t find it. I was intrigued by Kiss and since their album had the same title it didn’t really matter, ha ha!”
The Album To Break The Speed Limit To Is...
Morbid Angel - Altars Of Madness [Earache, 1989]
“I can’t drive but if I could, I’d be speeding to this. It has everything a death metal album should have. It’s wicked, morbid and insane. Morbid Angel set a new standard for how fast you could play in metal. I remember hearing Slayer and thinking, ‘You can’t get faster than that!’ A few years later, Altars Of Madness blew me away. To this day, it’s an amazing record.”
