Cata9tales / Press

“The combination, Berkley's frenzied rapping juxtaposed to the Kreator's boom bap, is worth stepping away from your own jungle book and listening to Cata9tales' songs about everything.”

“There are just not nearly enough rap artists like KRS-One; the sort that use music as an educationally entertaining tool, instead of a cynical path for the sole purpose of making paper. The world needs Cata9tales, right now! ”

“Cata9tales creates a nuanced sound that will give listeners something substantially different with each subsequent spin.”

“Overall, if you take a pass on the Cata9tales, you are going to miss out on an essential piece of indie alternative hip-hop history, no matter how you slice it.”

“Cata9tales is Eminem on speed. Rap injected with electricity. Radio songs sharpened up with daring experimentation and undying energy.”

“This is everything I love about some of the places the hip-hop and rap world have evolved into.”

“I was pleasantly surprised by the scope of this record and, in my opinion, other aspiring artists should take note of what Cata9tales does with their music. For some, “A Chameleon’s Dream” could be a useful learning tool when it comes to writing some stellar hip hop music.”

“Vocally, Berkley Priest delivers rhymes with incredible charisma, confidence and authority. There’s also a certain cheekiness to the way he phrases his lyrics. Cheeky, yet charismatic. 8/10”

“Cata9tales is what would happen if Beck drank insane amounts of coffee with the Red Hot Chili Peppers and decided to put out a hip hop album with the Beastie Boys. After featuring production and songwriting from Radiohead and Eminem, they send the record off to be mastered by an extra-terrestrial species. Only then would it be ready for mass consumption by earthlings. ”

“Lyrically, everything is wonderful and entertaining, not showy and meaningless. You would have to sit and listen for some time to get the messages.”

“Overall, A Chameleon's Dream is a dream come true for those of us who have been longing to hear hip hop investigate its ancestry and not forget where it came from.”

“Heard of hypecore? As much as the description may make you cringe, listeners will be greatly rewarded for delving into Cata9tales, who are catchier and more talented than you'd expect.”

“Cata9tales are incredibly talented and unique, bringing something totally new and explosive to the music industry, and are sure to be blowing up the world with their energetic, bad-ass music...DON'T GET LEFT BEHIND!!!”

“After having a few of its tracks featured in the Platinum Championship Wrestling documentary The Booker, which premiered in March at the Atlanta Film Festival, the band recently released an EP called 'A Chameleon’s Dream.'”

“Known for their reckless creativity, lyrical cunning, musical virtuosity, and unbridled, passionate live shows, Cata9tales are at once familiar and completely unique.”

“They shy not from the truth, but rather embrace it with their whole being. Armed with brutally honest lyrics and an old-school beat, Cata9tales lights the path for all of those who have been lost or forgotten in the chaotic pages of life.”

“What do you do when your entire world crumbles around you? If you're Berkley Priest, you lower your head, duck into the Bible, and emerge with one of the most auspicious debut albums of the year. ”

“Berkley Priest learned a lot of hard lessons during those moments of his life. After being kicked down by the media and judged by those in his community, he suddenly realized that God actually had His hand in the whole thing. It took all of that to bring him to the point that he would listen to God's call. "When God brings you to zero, it's not to destroy you. It's to reset you," he said. It was out of everything that Berkley had to go through -- during his lowest point in his life -- that Cata9tales was born. ”
