Home / Biography / Cataract


Although originally formed using a hardcore mindset, in 1998, Switzerland’s Cataract quickly adopted a harder, metallic edge with their songwriting, finding their accurate calling being a metalcore act within the vein of Hatebreed or Heaven Shall Burn off. Following a few demos and compilation performances, the quintet (offering vocalist Mosh, guitarists Greg and Simon Fuellemann, bassist Michi, and drummer Ricky) released their debut record, Golem, through Ferret Information, in 2000. New frontman Fedi (aka Federico Carminitana) found its way to time for the next year’s Martyr’s Melodies EP and Cataract’s initial tour from the U.S. (helping Poison the Well, Nora, among others), and they came back to Switzerland and started saving their second full-length, THE FANTASTIC Times of Vengeance — unleashed in 2003 by Germany’s LifeForce Recordings. Just one more label switch anticipated, and arrive 2004, Cataract’s third long-player, With Triumph Shows up Loss, premiered by American steel stalwart Metal Cutter.
