Cattera, your new favorite cat metal band, has released their debut single, “Hunger of the Beast.” The feline outfit is based in NYC and fronted by reformed street cat Roope-Shakir, fur baby of Fearless Records product manager Anna Mzyglocki. Those who love cats and metal will want to check this track out via Bandcamp as all proceeds, and any additional donations will go to Whiskers-A-GoGo, the Brooklyn non-profit volunteer-run cat rescue group.
“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.”
Roope-Shakir meowed the following (translated to human):
“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.”
