“Hailing from Varberg/Gothenburg Sweden and formed in 2012, We Are The Catalyst are the latest in a long and proud tradition of Swedish hard rock and metal bands. And like Ghost and Meshuggah before them, We Are The Catalyst are built on a creative independence that forbids anyone the ability to rightfully compare their sound to another band.
While We Are The Catalyst have a wildly dark, inventive sound all to their own, you wouldn’t be faulted for seeing the connection to nu-metal and early 2000’s hard rock.
The band’s strengths- vocals, catchy metal hooks and wicked instrumental chemistry position them as the new coming of the more one-dimensional aspects of that era while showing just how well done those ideas can be executed when done with integrity.
Since releasing their debut album, Monuments nearly four years ago, We Are The Catalyst have built a reputation as one of Sweden’s most promising rock and metal bands. With their upcoming album, Ephemeral set to drop early next year, the first single “Predators” is the perfect wetting of the appetite to raise anticipation and intrigue. If Ephemeral contains tracks half as good as “Predators”, We Are The Catalyst can very well find themselves sitting a top the mountain of rock and metal bands of this era.”
“WHA?!? Yes. We were kicked in the face and thrown down that stairs on that high castle beyond the mountains.
WE ARE THE CATALYST is a mix of what Evanescence brought to the game, and the vibes that made Linkin Park tremendous. ‘Predators’ is So good. It’s a ‘cleansing’ in a way. Our cobwebs from our head are broken. The haze is gone.
Cat Fey’s vocals strength helps propel the song into new heights. Fast rising is a correct assessment for WATC. Look out for more singles prior to the upcoming ‘Ephemeral’ due to drop early 2019. Hell’s yea!”
