Katatonia at Sound Control, Manchester - live review
Venue: Sound Control, Manchester
Katatonia and Ghost Bath bring rich atmospheres to Manchester
Though Ghost Bath may shrug off any comparison to Deafheaven, and certainly think of themselves as belonging to a different thread of extreme music, there’s definitely some sonic similarities evident as they warm up the crowd tonight. Some have never gotten over the controversies surrounding this band – who originally claimed to be from China, despite actually hailing from North Dakota in the US – but considering the music on its own, there are enjoyable moments, even if it doesn’t translate particularly well live.
