Kataklysm Headed To The Studio In January


Katkalysm will head to the studio in January for their new album sessions and have recruited a talented production team to see the effort through. Their own guitarist J-F Dagenais will oversee the instrumental portion of the record, while vocals will be overseen by producer Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, Cannibal Corpse). Handling the mixing and mastering of the outing will be Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Amon Amarth). The following statement was issued regarding their plans.

“There is no rest for the wicked as they say. Kataklysm has been full of inspiration and are in full determination mode lately; a rejuvenated band that is out to conquer the world with no sign of stopping! We’ve been secretly working hard on a monstrous new album, and will enter the studio next January to start tracking.

The process will take three months to complete, with three different producers at the helm. Seasoned guitarist and longtime studio engineer J-F Dagenais will be tracking drums, guitars and bass, while traveling between Montreal and Texas. Vocalist Maurizio Iacono will be tracking vocals in Florida with producer Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, DevilDriver, Cannibal Corpse). The entire process will be mixed and mastered in the UK by legendary producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Exodus>, Amon Amarth).

This promises to be the album that will once and for all establish Kataklysm as one of the top pioneers of the genre! The latest material will be touching on some new ground, while maintaining the aggressive edge the band has always been known for. The chemistry with new drummer Oli Beaudoin is incredible, and the four horsemen promise some crushing new material coming your way. Death metal hymns are arriving!”

Nuclear Blast are expecting a summer release for the outing.
