KATAGORY V: New Song Available For Streaming

"I Am Change", a brand new song from the progressive/power metal act KATAGORY V, can be streamed using the ReverbNation TuneWidget below. The track will appear on the band's upcoming fifth album, "Resurrect The Insurgence".

Comments bassist Dustin Mitchell: "It has been over four years in the making, and earlier this year we had finally finished tracking, mixing and mastering the new KATAGORY V album with the help of producer Dennis Ward (PINK CREAM 69, ANGRA, PRIMAL FEAR).

"We've had some downtime recently and decided that rather than sit on our hands and watch the world pass us by, it was time instead to let the world finally hear what is coming with a preview of one of the finished songs that will appear on the new album.

"Lyrically, this is a simple song about life changes, something that everyone in the KATAGORY V camp is now all too familiar with.

"In life, you have to either deal with change and adapt because it is inevitable, or if you don't like the change, then take a stand and make a change for yourself and move on.

"Musically, this song is a back-to-basics old school U.S. '80s metal anthem where we our wearing our influences on our sleeve. Straight-ahead crunchy rock riffing, powerful syncopated double bass drumming, in-the-rafters vocals with strong hooks, in-your-face bass, and virtuoso lead guitars!

"We picked this song for obvious reasons, and I'm sure when you all hear it the song title will speak for itself. We hope you enjoy it!"

"Resurrect The Insurgence" is the first KATAGORY V album to be recorded, produced, and engineered by Mitchell, who is the sole remaining original member in the band.
