The band comments on the single:

“‘The Song Of Revenge’ tells a macabre story, sometimes grotesque, in an esoteric key. The soundtrack is a sound with strong Italian western references!”

THE CATECHISTS were born in 2010 and their sound immediately stood out for its uniqueness. The first two demos, “Cleaning Under Sunshine” (2011) and “Time to Survive” (2015), saw the band embark on a path towards a more traditional and professional soundscape, with recordings without editing and the use of analogue sources.

After the 2018 EP “Roots in The Sand”, THE CATECHISTS went right back at work on their new opus, “Faded Away… Rust and Strings” which The Cardinal, mastermind of the band, describes as follow:

“Faded Away… Rust And Strings” takes a different approach to what we have done so far. We tried to keep our rough sound as always, but this time with acoustic guitars. Blues rock in a modern key, dark and sandy as it should be!”
