We Are Still Alive
C/A/T is back with a vengeance and proves this ever-changing project has not gone anywhere since 2008's 'The Great Crisis'. From the opening track (a nod to 'The Great Crisis') to the somber and unsettling finale - Ben Arp re-establishes C/A/T as a band to keep an attentive eye on. The meat of this EP is a core of 4 songs that feature some of the most structured and melodic sounds ever to appear on a C/A/T release. C/A/T ups the ante with dark, harsh and accusatory vocal work that shadows even the lyrical and vocal content from 2007's 'Point Of No Return'. Also included is a re-working of the 2007 track 'Dead To Me'. Arp has stripped this track to it's core and rebuilt it from the ground up into a far more melodic and aggressive track than the original. 'We Are Still Alive' is some of the most honest and compelling work from C/A/T and gives only a taste of what to expect from 2010's upcoming album.
