CATAPHILES: Self-titled:CD

Sep 22, 2023

Bremen, Germany’s Cataphiles have a dark, gothic sound rife with spooky, swirling organs and despairing lyrics about gloom and emptiness. But woven into all that doom is an up-tempo punk sensibility that results in hooks galore and creates an edgy, impending sense of disaster, as if Darklands-era Jesus And Mary Chain got hopped up on amphetamines and went around shooting things with harpoon guns. This was a worthwhile record for me; it left a twisted grin smeared across my pate. The fantasy show in my daydreams puts Cataphiles on the bill opening for the Damned and The Birthday Party. –The Lord Kveldulfr (Sabotage)
