A brand new track "The Chains Of Power," from Kataklysm's upcoming record "Prevail" has been posted on the bands new and improved MySpace Page.

Kataklysm vocalist Maurizio Iacono and the band explain the meaning of "The Chains Of Power": "The meaning behind the track "The Chains Of Power" is essential. It's a song the band wrote to give gratitude and strength to all the courageous soldiers who fight for our freedom. It doesn't matter if you are for or against certain wars, nor the bullshit politics that are associated with these topics.

This track is about the people in the world that decide to take a chance with their lives in order to preserve our way of living. While we drink, rock out at concerts and take our daily lives for granted, some soldier is out there in the middle of a Warfield dodging bullets and bombs. This commitment and sacrifice has to be acknowledged, it's our tribute to them and our soundtrack to give them courage. Prevail is a vast album with different faces and this is just a sample of the hammering to come...enjoy!"

"The Chains Of Power" comes from the upcoming release "Prevail", which was mixed at AudioHammer Studios in Orlando, Florida with producer Jason Suecof. The CD, which is scheduled for release via Nuclear Blast Records on May 23 (Europe) and May 27 (North America), features guest solo appearances by Pat O'Brien (Cannibal Corpse), Dave Linsk (Overkill) and producer and guitar shredder Jason Suecof himself.

Prevail will ALSO include a BONUS DVD with a full performance recorded from a live internet concert stream at DeepRockDrive studios in Las Vegas, NV on December 3, 2007.

Standard, average, formulaic, melodic and groovy - the latter two being no compliments as Kataklysm's best days were chaotic, raw and hostile. This actually makes The Road To Devastation sound good. Looking forward to see them in summer again nonetheless.

The new song sounds a little bit different but still quite good. I'm looking forward to listen to the whole album.

Not being that educated on Kataclysm's past stuff and how it's changed - simply cos I never got that into them, I had nothing to draw comparison from when I heard this song. You've just explained it perfectly. Thanks.

I'm quite pleased with this new song...and of course I'm looking forward to the release.

hmm this sounds different...more structured, but I like it.

sounds very good for me...I'm looking forward to it as well as to their previous albums !!

Damn it... I agree with Promo. Forget this useless trendy bullshit and listen to their original masterpieces from the mid 90s.

Although they hit a later high with Shadows & Dust, it's as if they've been going backwards to recreate the nü/core piece of crap Victims of This Fallen World. It's time for a bitchslap from Candlelight or something.
