KAATO / Press

“Leather & Leopard is back with the fantastic music you've come to expect! KAATO are back making their long awaited return to the L&L stage. If you missed them last time then you'd be a fool to miss them again. A fool I say! This a seriously good band.”

“Kaato is a solo project/5 piece band hailing from Sydneys Inner-West. Delivering a new breed of progressive hard rock, frontman Kaato recorded his Debut EP "Blind Thrust Fault" last April in Tokyo. Kaato creates a dynamic band with a bold new sound. The band have already wooed audiences winning several band comps as well as 'Global Battle of The Bands'.”

“Sounds like a Danny Elfman score on a cocaine binge. Great powerful vocals suit the track's powerful punk drive with sounds of early placebo present. Really catchy and interesting. Dan Scarlett Lake ”

“Kaato prowls the stage of the Factory Theater in Sydney. Kaato a very talented, self sufficient musician. In the video for In Disguise, you can witness him playing every instrument, and very well at that. He makes use of various techniques put forth by artists of the 70’s and 80’s, something which puts him right in line with his appearance and genre. The song itself is a masterful union of guitar riffs and techniques accompanied by a well thought out rhythm section and Kaato’s diversified vocals.”

“This is operatic pop punk done well. dirtied up vocals with some real studio sheen you could hit anthemic levels. Heaps of potential and I bet there are some frontman theatrics live too. Dave Ruby Howe, triple j triplej”
