Cat Temper - Tempest

from Completely Mental Volume 1 by The State of Synth



From the album "Purring For Vengeance" (

Cat Temper is the solo synth work of Mike Langlie, a Boston area artist and musician. Mike is best known for his toytronica project Twink. He also plays keys in the instrumental post-rock band Off-Ox.

⭑ ★ ⭑

After over a dozen releases with Twink The Toy Piano Band it felt like time to do something in contrast to the whimsical naivety of that project. Cat Temper was born to make big gnarly synth anthems in the spirit of un-subtle headbangers from the 1970s and 80s. The album title is a take on 'Screaming For Vengeance' by Judas Priest, a polished model of that over-the-top theatrical rebellion.
