KATAKLYSM Issues Update On Upcoming “Waiting For The End To Come” Album

Tuesday, 23rd July 2013

Veteran Canadian death metal outfit KATAKLYSM have checked in the following update about their forthcoming concept album, Waiting For The End To Come, which is slated for release this October:

“We will release two different, incredible artworks for the new album, Waiting For The End To Come, by two acclaimed artists, one by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, HATEBREED), and the other by Peter Sallai (SABATON), with different formats CD, Deluxe Digipak, LP and including a return to a limited edition cassette format (just like back in the day)!

We are anxious to release these new artworks to you guys, maybe next month? The new album is in mixing mode with producer Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, SOULFLY). Looking like a promising year for the mighty Kataklysm and a return to pure power. A world tour is in the works.”

KATAKLYSM will film a new music video in Belgrade, Serbia next month with acclaimed director Ivan Colic from iCode Productions (EX DEO, SOILWORK, MOONSPELL, ALESTORM, KAMELOT), whose previous work includes KATAKLYSM’s “Push The Venom” video and “EX DEO’s “Romulus” and “Final War (Battle Of Actium)” videos.

Filming will commence in August for “a very ambitious and sick” video for the song “Elevate” from KATAKLYSM’s forthcoming concept album, Waiting For The End To Come. According to the band, the plan is to bring the viewers into a visual masterpiece of chaos, a chaos based around the ideals of death, the purpose of life, the human factor, and the semi-coma state that most people in this world exist in.

Says Iacono: “In a nutshell, we believe we wrote the most intense, intricate storyline for a video clip ever made in death metal and our genre. Big statement? Well, we’ve got big ideas and we need to put it to life with crazy visuals. We hired the man who has the balls and the artistic capacity to execute this task plus one of the best special FX teams in Europe to back him up. It’s time to up the game. We’re back and we’re swinging hard.”

KATAKLYSM recently issued the following update: “A world club tour is in the works in support for the new mega album Waiting For The End To Come; the band will start its campaign with Canada, Australia, Japan and Europe from November to February 2014 as part one of the massive campaign. Mixing mode of the new album is about to begin (with Zeuss), rehearsals are underway, Bloodstock in the UK is next in August and the world is about to tremble. New death metal hymns, from the worlds most lethal road warriors are coming.”
