NMM SoundBytes: WE ARE THE CATALYST’s “Predators”

While this isn’t a Halloween themed post, per se, it’s always appropriately spooky for the month of October to dive into some good ole heavy metal. More appropriately, it’s great to dig into metal from Scandanavia, the home of the most evil metal in the world. Today’s New Music Monday SoundByte comes from Swedish metalheads We are the Catalyst. Their sound is decidedly less dark and more melodic than the evil gods of Norse rock that put Scandanavian metal on the map, but they still sufficiently rock faces out.

Their upcoming album, Ephemeral, is set to drop in early 2019, but you can get a taste for their metallic rock sound now with the first single from the new album, “Predators”. Playing much like Evanescence, but with more edge and a freshness that Evanescence lost as time went on, the single is catchy, heavy, and dark. In other words, it’s well worth you 5 minutes to check them out and hear it for yourself.

You can also listen to the single on Spotify and check the band out at their official website, https://www.facebook.com/WATCofficial, and most social media outlets.

Justin has been running websites since his first Geocities site in 1994, but only did he ever start covering anything of substance years later. After he stopped regularly running local concerts in Northern NJ and the greater Philly area, he knew he needed to step up his writing game if he expected to continue to get free music to listen to. He writes regularly here, at Cinapse, and at Rock on Philly... as well as on occasion at Cinepunx. He previously wrote for several other sites, but he forgets some of them and others no longer exist. He likes music, film, the Philadelphia Eagles, talking about Criminal Justice, reading Intelligence Report, and his family... not in that order. His beautiful wife is far more talented than he is and his kids far more adorable... and crazy.
