Kataklysm Update Fans on New Album, 2010 Tour Dates
Canadian extreme metal outfit KATAKLYSM is in full writing mode at the moment for the follow up to the very successful “Prevail” album. Guitarist J-F Dagenais recently offered the following update regarding the bands progress writing the follow up to the bands 2008 release “Prevail”, released via Nuclear Blast Records:
“I’m really excited to be deep into the writing process for the new KATAKLYSM album! The band is more focused then ever. This album will be different then ‘Prevail’ but will still have the classic KATAKLYSM trademarks and hooks. You will see a much more intricate record then we’ve done in the past. It will contain some really fast and dynamic parts but we also aim for a very melodically driven record that will contain lots of technical parts that we haven’t explored much lately. No worries though, the bone crushing grooves are always a must with KATAKLYSM and will be present.
I’ve also seen Maurizio’s lyrics for this album so far and let me tell you that they hit really hard! I know it’s a very personal album to him as he is going through some tough times in his personal life, so I’m not worried about what he will bring to this record. Expect a very real, aggressive and determined KATAKLYSM album. We know we have set the bar high for ourselves but we are confident to deliver the goods once again!
On the production end, I will handle the recording as usual but for the mix we have decided to enlist Tue Madsen (THE HAUNTED, SUICIDE SILENCE, WINDS OF PLAGUE, DARK TRANQUILITY) again from Denmark. We feel he captured the bands sound best on ‘In the Arms of Devastation’ and that we’re a winning team. We’re going to make sure you have the best sounding record to date!”
On Christmas day, KATAKLYSM will pretend like people care and reveal the new album title for their upcoming release on their Facebook, Twitter and Myspace pages. The album is tentatively scheduled for release for late Summer/early Fall 2010..
