“KAATO are a brand spankin’ new band from Sydney, Australia by way of Nashville, Tennessee, USA.There is much to explore on this album. There are elements of blues, funk, and sleaze, all mashed up into one great mix. SLEAZEROXX.COM”

“What do you get when you mix Mitch Malloy and Red Dawn, along with some awesome young bloods from Australia? ANSWER = KAATO !!”

“The band's presence and stage persona was a brilliant rendition of early Bowie - Mark Bolin - Sweet and 80's retro coupled with the diamond glints of Van Halen. Kurts voice hovered on three octave levels and at his peaks were flashes of early Freddy Mercury. Overall the band's brilliant original music held me spellbound and soared through on a waves of excitement and unique RnR chemistry.”

“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”
