DECEMBER 10 – KATELLA: Shades Of Grey/Freakshow 47 CD Available Via ARKEYN STEEL RECORDS

First review at FORGOTTEN SCROLL webzine:

KATELLA from Wisconsin, USA were founded in 1990 and from their very first days they followed a very specific direction playing their favorite music: Melodic Heavy Metal.

Their sound evolved throughout the years and got stronger and richer, with their 1995 “Shades Of Grey” CD being a great example of their musical style. It features some of the most fantastic vocal melodies, explosive riffing and best melodic guitar leads someone can hear. Only 1000 copies were pressed on the small Megalithic Records label and as a result the CD went out of print very quickly.

Things are pretty much the same -if not better- on their “Freakshow 47” album that was privately released by the band back on 2000. Another 1000 copies were pressed and they were gone really fast.

Arkeyn Steel Records presents both of their releases in one CD. Remastered, packed with lyrics and unreleased photos, including a bonus song from the band’s unreleased 1990 demo “Winds Of Change”.

This is amazing first class Melodic Heavy Metal delivered by a band who knew how to compose magnificent songs! For sure not to be missed!
