I have to be in the mood for Riverside, but can listen to Katatonia any time.

There is in fact more earth than sea.

Great poll!Two of my most favorite bands.But I voted Katatonia.Depressive rock!!!

Mikael Akerfeldt for fans of Opeth who don't like his growls (and generally the growls): If they don't like it then they are pussies.

Extreme prog metal rules!!!

Like both, but I think Riverside is better. Katatonia recorded many weak albums and new one is just decent in my opinion. From Riverside I don't like the debut only.

Riverside, no question. Katatonia are still a good band who have had a long lasting influence on many different styles of metal and rock... but Riverside are magic.

They are really damn good.
Katatonia, while I'll admit I'm no expert, I was never really floored by them.
In fact I'm no expert because I never really wanted to listen again!

riverside for sure,
i really like katatonia - viva emptiness is still on my regular listenings but i find them nowadays somehow repetitive.
now riveside WOW!
they have grown on me so so much! all albums are stupidly good. they´re just wonderfull songs after wonderfull songs

"when routine bites hard and ambitions are low,
and resentment rides high but emotions won´t grow
And we´re changing our ways, taking different roads..
Then love, love will tear us apart again.."

Katatonia are more consistent than Riverside, but Riverside's music at its best strikes me as superior. 

I kind of don't get all the love for early Katatonia (death/doom era); I think there are much more interesting artists in the genre. 

Night is the New Day is pretty awesome though.

Riverside for sure.

Dig me...But don't...Bury me
I'm running still, I shall until, one day, I hope that I'll arrive

Going with Riverside, but to be honest I'm not very familiar with Katatonia. Pandora plays them for me sometimes, though, and I like what I've heard.
