CATTAC are this mysterious duo consisting of HELM (Jens Helmis) & CHRIS (Christian Schinköthe) with this unique, own dark electronic sound, inspired by the dark analogue sounds of the 90s , the early darkwave and
the cross-genre environment of the present...
Helm and Chris look back on a long musical past, in the most varied of bands and genres ... a little annoyed by the mushroom-sprouting new "Goth bands" back then with their sounds and images that are far too similar,
they founded the band CATTAC at christmas 2017.
Since the initial search for a suitable singer (both of them only had experience with the respective instruments) turned out to be very difficult, HELM decided, after an unsuccessful search, to take over the vacant position of the singer.
The demo "Dead Like me" that followed in 2018 sounded fresh, but still quite bumpy, especially when it came to HELM's vocals. But a start was made ... and the first positive reactions and the following record contract with the darkTunes Music Group, obtained through the demo, encouraged both to keep going and to step on the gas ...
Somewhat "thrown back" by the COVID requirements of the last two years, CATTAC are now firmly in the saddle of the black underground scene, ready to rock it out!

CATTAC are not that easy to classify because they don't want to stick to other bands or trends.
Nevertheless their music is immediately contagious and casts you into its abysmal, danceable spell.
The music of the germans rocks, is at the same time very electronic, sometimes dares the view outside the lines and they openly breaks the dividing walls between the different dark subgenres.
With the on December 10th available 4th release "NIGHTNESS" they seduce lovers of dark music with their very own style crossover, which skillfully combines darkwave, EBM and gothic walls of sound.
Hypnotic beats accelerate the pulse, dark electronic melodies hit the depths of the black souls and the distinctive voice from the charismatic singer give you the merciless command to dance.
Now one of the best underground bands on the black scene are back.
Of course live on stage too- with her extraordinary show & the obligatory cat masks.
Stay tuned for CATTAC and enjoy...
