Album Notes
After seven long years, numerous mind-bending demos, eps and splits, and a litany of tours criss-crossing the United States and Europe, Richmond, Virginia’s best kept secret, THE CATALYST offer up their first full length album, "Swallow Your Teeth", a noisy, mathy, heavy, pummeling, feedback-soaked behemoth of sonic destruction. Still channeling a wide range of hardcore, punk, grunge, noise rock, and sludge influences and not afraid to show their love for NIRVANA, SONIC YOUTH, MELVINS, THE JESUS LIZARD and most of the AMPHETAMINE REPTILE and SUB POP back catalog, "Swallow Your Teeth" displays the band’s creative prowess and power fully matured and realized.

"Swallow Your Teeth" was recorded and mixed in May 2009 by Steve Roche (OFF MINOR) and mastered by Carl Saff (YOUNG WIDOWS). Painter and friend Raymond Klecker, who did the artwork for the band’s 2007 ep, "Marianas Trench", created cover artwork for the album.

Praise for past releases:
"Crushing, heavy post hardcore stoner grunge screamo heaviness from these Richmond Virginia noisemakers. Grinding, pummeling, super distorted and angular post punk, but with some serious groove, and vocals that go from howled to screeched to crooned (well almost), killer riffs, filthy and heavy, pounding drums, mathy and chaotic, think Jesus Lizard, Scratch Acid, Mudhoney, Halo Of Flies, the Melvins, lots of Amrep, some Sub Pop, and here and there, Nirvana at their noisiest and heaviest." - AQUARIUS RECORDS

“This fuzzed out, distorted noise-fest of grueling bass, pummeling drums, and disjointed guitars is a serious headf***... Melding a whole heap of styles and influences into their feral sound – one minute they’re a slow-burning Kyuss, the next they’re Botch on steroids and then they’re At The Drive In – we like this. A lot.” – ROCKSOUND

“A healthy dose of incredibly dirty yet still heavily melodic three piece rock 'n roll… warm and driving bass melodies accompanied with howling guitar work possessing borderline psychedelic tendencies.” - LAMBGOAT
