CATA9TALES

Simply speaking, Cata9tales is a product of our modern times. We’ve reached a dead-end with popular music, and it’s a tiresome task trying to find something unique. That’s where they own the scene: they dare to take risks where other artists won’t.

Cata9tales is Eminem on speed. Rap injected with electricity. Radio songs sharpened up with daring experimentation and undying energy.

Berkley Priest takes care of the lyrical heat while Kreator keeps the fire going with club-worthy beats. This isn’t just straight-edge hip-hop or old-school funk- it’s far more intellectually challenging than that.

When you listen to them, you can’t help but move and you can’t help but think. Their twisting of rhythm and engaging of distortion always keeps you guessing.

Plus, their stamina is unbelievable! I can’t imagine seeing these guys rip the cement off a stage! It’s like they step into their music and leave all human faults behind. They don’t just create music, they become it.

I love how socially aware their lyrics are. Their music content screams of the revolution that’s been beating in the brains of our generation. These guys could be the soundtrack of the Occupy movement.

It’s true that they dominate the electro and hip-hop/rap genres, but at the same time I feel a lot of rock n’ roll lust pounding through their veins. You can especially feel that rebel influence in their most recent album, Chameleon’s Dream. There’s a lot of anger in it, but also a lot of passion. And that makes it beautiful.

Keep an eye out for these guys. They deserve our attention.
