Kataklysm - Working On New Material

Kataklysm are in full writing mode at the moment for the follow-up to the Prevail album. The band have also confirmed the mixing duties for the next offering.

Guitarist Jean-François Dagenais comments: "I'm really excited to be deep into the writing process for the new Kataklysm album, the band is more focused than ever. This album will be different from Prevail, but will still have the classic Kataklysm trademarks and hooks. You will see a much more intricate record than we've done in the past. It will contain some really fast and dynamic parts, but we will also aim for a very melodic driven record and it will contain lots of technical parts as well that we haven't explored much lately. And no worries, the bone crushing grooves are always a must with Kataklysm and will be present. I've also seen Maurizio's lyrics for this album so far and let me tell you that they hit really hard. I know it's a very personal album to him as he is going through some tough times in his personal life. So I'm not worried about what he will bring to this record, so expect a very real, aggressive and determined Kataklysm album! We know we have set the bar high for ourselves, but we are confident to deliver the goods once again. On the production end I will handle the recording as usual, but for the mix we have decided to enlist Tue Madsen from Denmark. We feel he captured best the band's sound on In the Arms of Devastation. We feel it's a winning team and we're gonna make sure you have the best sounding record to date."

The album is scheduled for release in late summer/early fall 2010, and vocalist Maurizio Iacono will reveal the new album title on Christmas Day on the band's MySpace page.

This sounds really promising! I'm a huge fan of Kataklysm, but I wasn't really into their past two releases "In The Arms Of Devastation" and "Prevail". I'm not going to get my hopes up, but fast, dynamic, technical, melodic, and groovy sounds like a good Kataklysm album to me.

What's over is over and nothing between.
Yesterday dont mean shit,
Because tomorrow's the day you have to face"
