KATAKLYSM Posts Artwork For Deluxe Edition Of “Waiting For The End To Come”Monday, 12th August 2013
Canadian hyperblast kings KATAKLYSM have posted the cover artwork for the deluxe edition of their forthcoming new album, Waiting For the End to Come. The artwork can be viewed below.
“This other version of the new art made by Eliran Kantor represents a more iconic and epic approach,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “A man representing all of humanity, shaking the foundation of existence and ultimately beginning the process of destruction. The main foundation is depicted here as the famous KATAKLYSM ‘tribal sun’ logo. It does not represent the end of KATAKLYSM by any means; more the beginning of a new era after the end of a certain existence.”
Due in October via Nuclear Blast Records, the follow-up to 2010’s Heaven’s Venom was recorded by KATAKLYSM guitarist Jean-François Dagenais, who has previously worked with MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX and DESPISED ICON, among others, and mixed by Chris “Zeuss” Harris (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, ARSIS). Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include “If I was God… I’d Burn It All”, “Under Lawless Skies” and “Kill The Elite”.
KATAKLYSM will filmed a music video this month in Belgrade, Serbia with acclaimed director Ivan Colic from iCode Productions (EX DEO, SOILWORK, MOONSPELL, ALESTORM, KAMELOT).
Ivan Colic previously worked with KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono on KATAKLYSM’s “Push The Venom” video and EX DEO’s “Romulus” and “Final War (Battle Of Actium)” clips.
Filming will commenced 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.
