KATAKLYSM Renews Deal With Nuclear Blast

Saturday, 7th June 2014

KATAKLYSM has reached a new deal with Nuclear Blast Europe and Nuclear Blast USA for the future as the band renewed its contract for the fifth time since they signed their first deal 20 years ago in 1994.

KATAKLYSM will end its campaign for the Waiting For The End To Come world tour this December; then the band will prepare a brand new album for 2015.

The band recently released the video for their cover of SACRED REICH’s “The American Way.”

“KATAKLYSM has never covered any band before on disc in its 20-year existence,” stated KATAKLYSM singer Maurizio Iacono. “We decided to change that on the new record and wanted to do something people didn’t expect, but also something that stood through time.

“The message behind the song is still relevant now. The difference today is that it’s a global problem, not only in North America, but everywhere. I personally grew up on early thrash metal and SACRED REICH was and is one of my all-time favorite bands. It was very important that we had the blessings from the band to do this video. The guys in SACRED REICH gave us the green light and are happy that we did this.

“We chose to reconstruct the same type of video they did for it back in the day but in a modern-day setting.”
