cinematic symphonic metal
Massacre Records' Catalyst Crime is an international cinematic symphonic metal band that began in late 2017 as a project between Xandria drummer Gerit Lamm and American vocalist Zoe Marie Federoff. Accompanied by orchestral composer and keyboardist Jonah Weingarten of Pyramaze, guitarists Chena Roxx and Kaelen Sarakinis, as well as bassist Matt Federoff, the project quickly took shape into a fully formed band blending the epic soundscapes of symphonic metal, the dark intensity of death metal, and moments of free spirited progressive metal. Upon meeting the band and hearing the project, Alexander Krull (Leaves’ Eyes, Atrocity) eagerly joined the team as producer and recorded the self-titled debut album at Mastersound Studios in Stuttgart, Germany. The debut Catalyst Crime album is due in 2021.
This is sad news to type out, as we were so looking forwards to meeting the European fans and finally delivering this album live, but due to rising energy costs associated with various global conflicts and ongoing inflation, we have made the difficult decision to pull out of the upcoming tour with Leaves' Eyes and Temperance. The costs associated with it have simply risen too high for us to justify the undertaking.
We know we are not the only band making this type of decision about touring this fall and we also know music is a beacon of light and normalcy in these trying times. We, as well as the rest of the metal world, will keep fighting to bring it to you under more favorable conditions. We look forwards to seeing you on another upcoming tour and in the meantime we wish you and all your loved ones the best.
-Zoe, Gerit, Jonah, Kaelen, Chena, and Matt
