KATAKLYSM To Shoot Video For SACRED REICH Cover “The American Way”Tuesday, 4th March 2014
Montreal-based death metal powerhouse KATAKLYSM have recruited friend and director Tommy Jones (TESTAMENT, DEATH ANGEL, EX DEO) to shoot a new music video with the band early next month in the New Jersey area. Jones, who has also worked on the group’s acclaimed Iron Will DVD, will helm a clip for the band’s rendition of the SACRED REICH classic, ‘The American Way’.
“It’s just like a bull in a china shop stomping its way through,” stated Sacred Reich frontman Phil Rind of KATAKLYSM’s take on their signature track.
“KATAKLYSMhas never covered any band before on disc in its 20 year existence,” comments 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 were doing this. We chose to reconstruct the same type of video they did for it back in the day but in modern day setting. It’s going to rock!”
The song can be heard on the band’s latest album, Waiting For The The End To Come, which was released last October on Nuclear Blast Records.
