Thrash Hits verdict: A few months ago when we first played Katechon to Tom Dare, our former contributor and now-Commissioning Editor at Terrorizer, his response was “They’re REALLY horrible, and that’s much harder to do than people think – most of the stuff that tries to sound horrible just sounds like shitty noise.” If Tom thinks it sounds nasty, then we’re interested – that’s why we caught up with the band’s enigmatically-named vocalist, L:O∴, to get the inside story of their nasty brand of black metal.
Katechon manifested late 2011 as means for creating raw esoteric metal, music without limitations. To be a vessel for our collective inspirations. These inspirations include old Death Metal, Black Metal, Modern classical music, Avantgarde and the darker side of Thrash Metal. There are also influences from western mysticsm, esoterism and the darker side of the psyche.
After some demo recordings and a few gigs, Katechon was signed by Nuclear War Now! Productions.
The full lenght "Man, God, Giant" was released in june 2013. Read more on Last.fm
