“Hailing from Varberg/Gothenburg Sweden and formed in 2012, We Are
The Catalyst are the latest in a long and proud tradition of Swedish
hard rock and metal bands. And like Ghost and Meshuggah before them,
We Are The Catalyst are built on a creative independence that forbids
anyone the ability to rightfully compare their sound to another band.
While We Are The Catalyst have a wildly dark, inventive sound all to
their own, you wouldn’t be faulted for seeing the connection to nu-metal
and early 2000’s hard rock.
The band’s strengths- vocals, catchy metal hooks and wicked
instrumental chemistry position them as the new coming of the
more one-dimensional aspects of that era while showing just how
well done those ideas can be executed when done with integrity.
Since releasing their debut album, Monuments nearly four years ago,
We Are The Catalyst have built a reputation as one of Sweden’s most
promising rock and metal bands. With their upcoming album, Ephemeral
set to drop early next year, the first single “Predators” is the
perfect wetting of the appetite to raise anticipation and intrigue.
If Ephemeral contains tracks half as good as “Predators”, We Are The
Catalyst can very well find themselves sitting a top the mountain of
rock and metal bands of this era.”

- Metalstorm.net Review of Elevation
"WE ARE THE CATALYST has fulfilled their purpose to be a guiding light
in the dark and then some with this release. - "Ephemeral" showcases
the beautiful sides of the shadows and to never be afraid of them."
Metal-temple.com - Score 10/10 - Review of Ephemeral.
She (Cat Fey) has the most wonderful voice and it´s one that allows
the listener to immerse themselves in both song and lyric. Yes, they are
dark songs, that can not be ignored, but somehow the dark (and it´s
something that returned time and time again as I wrote this) is
never imposing, but rather is used to inspire you to open up to your
own feelings and let them out whilst listening to the music. The wall of
sound, where the music simply fills each of the headphone speakers as
you sit listening, no, absorbing the music, is truly uplifting.
A cold dark January morning feels like nothing when the light of
WATC cuts through the gloom.
Powerplay magazine March 2019 - Score 9/10
“WHA?!? Yes. We were kicked in the face and thrown down that stairs on
that high castle beyond the mountains.
WE ARE THE CATALYST is a mix of what Evanescence brought to the game,
and the vibes that made Linkin Park tremendous. ‘Predators’ is So good.
It’s a ‘cleansing’ in a way. Our cobwebs from our head are broken.
The haze is gone.Cat Fey’s vocals strength helps propel the song into new heights.
Fast rising is a correct assessment for WATC. Look out for more
singles prior to the upcoming ‘Ephemeral’ due to drop early 2019.
