    Due to unforeseen circumstances, vocalist Lynn Allers will not be performing with Katagory V at the bands CD release show in Salt lake City, UT on October 27th. Filling in for Allers at the event will be singer Norman Skinner, lead vocalist for the Bay Area-based speed/thrash metal band Imagika.

    Katagory V bassist Dustin Mitchell had this to say "We had a pretty big list of vocalists that we felt could jump in quick and do this dirty job, many of which happen to be pretty heavy hitters and surprised us in actually getting back to us and offering to help us out! But at the end of the day, it came down to a select few that actually had the time, and Norm was at the top. We have actually known Norm for several years, We’ve shared the stage with Imagika, and have seen him perform; He is a long-time friend, an extremely versatile and professional front man, and is known to be a "Heavy Metal Chameleon"; We flew him out for a rehearsal, and I can confidently say he is definitely more than qualified to pull it off. We are very excited to have him on the microphone belting out our songs for this show!"

    When asked about the invitation to perform with Katagory V, Norman Skinner said, "I have been friends with Katagory V for quite some time, I was honored to be considered as one of the vocalists to fill in temporarily. All the musicians are accomplished and they write great songs. I’m looking forward to the CD release show in Salt Lake and hope all Katagory V and Imagika fans in the area enjoy it.”

    At the time of this announcement, the members of Katagory V had given no comment concerning long-time front man Lynn Allers absence from the upcoming performance.

    Katagory V’s 4th and latest album Hymns of Dissension is available in stores now, and was released September 25th in Europe via Burning Star Records, and recently released on October 9th in the U.S. and Canada through Nightmare Records.

    Sadly it looks like I won't be able to make it to the show. This is getting to be an unfortunate habit...

    Hey guys, I just wanted to let you all know that I had a blast on Saturday.

    That show is easily one of my favorite performances ever!!

    Please let the rest of the band know it was an honor to share a stage with you guys.

    If not anytime soon maybe we can do this again. Hell... you could always head this way as well. :)

    Hel yeah, We had a blast too Norm!!! :kickass:

    The honor was ours!

    I think you spoiled some of the local SLC fans though, there were some that were bummed to know you had to go back home - Including my daughter. :p

    Maybe we will make it out to the Bay Area soon... god knows it would be nice to see everyone out there!

    Maybe BOTH of you guys need to just give it up, and play Rhode Island for me.

    I'm extremely jealous I missed this show, as I love Katagory V, and I love Imagika, so Katagory V feat. Norm sounds like it was amazing.

    Some day I'll just have to drag both bands over here.

    We'd definately be down to get out to RI and play a show sometime!
    ..or at the very least, get as close as we can.
