Cat-Fronted Metal Band Cattera Release Debut Single “Hunger Of The Beast”


Cat-fronted metal band Cattera have released their debut single “Hunger Of The Beast“. According to an official press release, the outfit are fronted by a ‘reformed street cat Roope-Shakir, fur baby of Fearless Records product manager Anna Mrzyglocki.’ Mrzyglocki commented:

“I knew Roope-Shakir had star power from the moment he entered my apartment. I heard his emotion-filled meows and knew he needed to be the front cat of a metal band. It sparked a passion for A&R I never knew I had. People may think Cattera is just another ‘industry plant,’ but there’s real talent here.”

Pressed for comment, Roope-Shakir ‘purred’:

“I’m stoked to release my first track with Cattera, as I’m a huge fan of OG animal kingdom metal bands like Hatebeak and Caninus. I hope I can be an inspiration to all street cats who have something to say.”

100% of the proceeds from the track will go towards Whiskers-A-GoGo, a Brooklyn, NY nonprofit cat rescue group which got Roope-Shakir off of the streets. You can check out “Hunger Of The Beast” over at Bandcamp.
