Kataklysm has been on the metal scene for a long time. Long enough to lose musical focus. Happily this is not the case as they have come back with one hell of a record. Heaven's Venom is the god forsaken love child of In The Arms Of Devastation and Serenity Of Fire. It's melodic and crushing to say the least.

Death metal
Canada
Nuclear Blast

Line-up on the CD:
Maurizio Iacono - vocals
J-F Dagenais - guitars
Stephane Barbe - bass
Max Duhamel - drums

Commercial death metal is - in the eyes of this reviewer - a dead sound. It is far too safe and lacks the integral extremity that makes for something in the genre's style worth listening to in the first place. Kataklysm, one of the more notable Canadian death metal connoisseurs, have taken their Northern Hyperblast trademark sound and ventured into generic territory. So much so you can judge this accurately just by the cover art: yet another appearance by the infamous gargoyle. It will probably sound a lot like the other gargoyle-graced albums.

hope it's not as hard to understand as your comment
Anyway, this album kicks ass! It's even more melodic than Prevail but the hyperblast is still there and the riffs are very catchy. How I'm proud of this all french band ^^

I just realized in the chorus, when he says PUSH THE VENOM it sounds like Maurizio's yelling CONSTIPATED, literally. Fantastic. Not

Quite mediocre in fact, though I like it more than their previous. Best Kata stuff will always be from before the invasion of Iraq

I knows but they're different from the other TDM bands.. I guess thats what makes them special after all even if they can get somewhat redundant, I never get tired of their sound.

It took a while to get around to listening to this very much, but now it's my favorite Kataklysm.
