CATARACT: New Album Details Revealed

2008 marks CATARACT's tenth year of existence, and it will also be the year in which the Swiss metalcore act releases its self-titled fifth full-length album.

Since 1998, CATARACT has been evolving from a project band into one of Switzerland's premiere metal outfits.

The last couple of years have brought a lot of changes for the band. A new guitar player and a new bass player were added, a whole new album was written and the group still managed to stay out on the road in Europe, kicking some serious ass.

CATARACT's new formation has added a lot of fresh blood and creativity to the sound, as can be heard on the new album, which is scheduled for release in Europe on March 25. This self-titled fifth release is by far the band's most progressive to date, showing a lot more variety by adding a lot of brutality and speed but also more melody and heaviness. The massive production of Tue Madsen rounds off the package, which will be available in three editions: as a regular CD, as a limited-edition CD with a bonus disc (for which the band recorded a whole bunch of cover songs) and as a picture disc on vinyl (limited to 500 copies).
