18:22 - EMols86 Still, I didn't complain because I already saw them 2 times before that. First two times they did play a lot of their more extreme songs. But it's just a shame they went into this direction (progressive rock that is).
Bad news for Kataklysm fans. Drummer Max Duhamel won't be performing on the next Kataklysm album Waiting For The End To Come due to problems with alcohol. The band promises to find a fitting replacement and announce it in the next few weeks.

And also Canadian death metallers Kataklysm have a new video out for your viewing pleasure. The band just unveiled their new video for the song "Push The Venom" and can be watched below. The clip was filmed last month in Belgrade, Serbia with director Ivan Colic (Type O Negative, Unleashed, Ex Deo).
Commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "After the crazy videos we did with Ex Deo, it was only natural for us to upgrade the Kataklysm visuals as well. We decided to try to recreate the underworld fantasy atmosphere depicted in the artwork with some great visual effects. The song is about surviving the judgment that others cast upon you, and that which is important and feels right to you. Spread your venom and not the lies of your enemies! Ivan did another fantastic job and we are super-happy with it and hopefully you guys dig it too."
