Beyond alerting everyone that, point for point and note for note, this album sounds virtually indistinguishable from Werkbund (numerous of whose albums have been posted here over time), there's very little for me to offer here, not least due to the fact that Katahtonios have studiously avoided providing even a trace of info anywhere (not even song titles). What little I've managed to glean is that someone online cited the release date as 1991 and that at the time I got it, a distributor told me it was of Scottish origin. Whatever the case, the hallucinogenic netherworld hidden within this velvet bagged cloak is a thing of rare and unsettling beauty.

I got this from René Heid at Rund Um Den Watzmann about 10 years ago. Great record!

I'm sure René knows a bit about it.

Totally amazing and quite creepy. "Netherworld" is a good word for this. If you're saying this sounds like Werkbund, I guess I'm going to have to check those fellows out too!
Thanks for another stunning post!

(where did you GET all this stuff?!?!)

Sadly, the Katahtonios s/t (July 3 2007) link no longer works. Could this be re-upped?
