Boise punk band Cat Massacre can be described in many ways, but they paint themselves as a “blackend/surf/kindergarten thrash band.” They’ve released “The Ballad of the Lone Castrati,” for free download, which will be released on their forthcoming EP entitled Blood, Guts and T*ts. “Castrati” opens with something akin to what Dick Dale’s midtempo take on Spazz might be before thrusting into overdrive. Even at breakneck speeds, Cat Massacre uses treble-laden, melodic guitar as a perfect counterpoint to their menacing, feral vocals. Blood, Guts and T*ts is due out in mid May.
