Check Out The First Single From CATTERA, The Real Cat-Fronted Metal Band

Now here's something ya don't see every day. A cat-fronted metal band.

Hailing from the literal streets of New York City, CATTERA is a feline four-piece fronted by reformed street cat Roope-Shakir, fur baby of Fearless Records product manager Anna Mrzyglocki.

Well kids, turns out today is the day that CATTERA release their debut single, “Hunger Of The Beast”, via Bandcamp. And you can hear it just below this article!

“I knew Roope-Shakir had star power from the moment he entered my apartment,” Mrzyglocki says. “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.”

“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,” Roope-Shakir purrs. “I hope I can be an inspiration to all street cats who have something to say.”

CATTERA also shared a behind-the-scenes studio clip, offering a look at its creative process.

100% of the track sales and any additional donations will directly benefit Whiskers-A-GoGo, the Brooklyn non profit volunteer-run cat rescue group that got Roope-Shakir off the streets and into his forever home.
