Max left the band

Max left the band - 21.01.2003

21.01.2003 - Kataklysm have recently come back from their most successful European tour in their career. The X-Mass festivals were a big step up for the band and they wish to thank all the bands who participated and especially the fans for their incredible support and warm welcome, and of course Metallysee Agency for putting it together!!

On a more sour note, Kataklysm have parted ways with long time drummer Max Duhamel, immediately after the European tour was completed. Max announced to the band that he will be retiring but accepted none the less to do the upcoming North American tour in Feb./March 2003 with Hate Eternal, Dying Fetus & Into Eternity... But to the band's surprise, Max has decided to pull out of that engagement a few days ago, leaving the band stranded to find a drummer, whom the band have now found and hope to be ready for the tour. Band leader Maurizio Iacono has this to say: "Well what can I say... Basically that we're pretty much in shock, especially after the tour we've just done and the upper level Kataklysm has reached with the last record, we weren't expecting this at all. We all knew that Max was starting to get tired of doing this shit but we didn't expect him to quit so suddenly and also to go back on his word about doing the tour in Feb./March, which is something he is not known to do at all!! We've struggled to find a last minute replacement and we found someone who is willing to help us out and make this tour happen, which we are very grateful (although he will not join the band permanently). J-F Richard (Blastfame/Eon Dissonance) is practicing intensively at the moment with guitarist J-F Dagenais and bassist Stephane Barbe in hopes of getting everything done in time for a 35 min. set. I've asked Max for a statement but I haven't received one, if anything I will post it on our website. We will find the right replacement and move on. The song writing will not be affected as Max was never really part of the writing process. We wish Max all the best for the future. We refuse to let down our fans in the States and our touring buddies, therefore we're doing everything possible to be there for the tour."

Kataklysm has also confirmed a co-headlining position at the Partysan festival, this summer in Germany. The band still plans to go on a full Canadian tour in late spring, the BW&BK festival in Cleveland this June and the Wacken Open Air festival in August.

A full European tour is also in talks for September and the band expects to enter the studio in November to record the follow-up to their critically acclaimed latest album "Shadows & Dust", with guitarist /producer J-F Dagenais. The official title of the next onslaught will be "Serenity in Fire".
