KATAKLYSM – announce anniversary DVD title    - 2011-02-16

2011-02-16 - Canadian extreme metallers KATAKLYSM have begun the long process of putting together elements for their upcoming 20th-anniversary DVD. Titled "The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined", this documentary will begin with the band's inception in 1991 and tell the lasting story behind of one of the most important extreme musical exports in Canada`s short 143-year history. Director and producer Tommy Jones (SOILWORK, DEATH ANGEL) will catch the band's heartbeat on the road to put the memories together. The DVD will also include interviews with a wide range of characters, including the band's infamous first frontman Sylvain Houde, who sang on the first three KATAKLYSM albums, "The Mystical Gate Of Reincarnation" (1993), "Sorcery" (1996), and "Temple Of Knowledge" (1999).

A single and a video clip for the title track "The Iron Will" will be recorded this summer.

The massive content of the DVD will include KATAKLYSM's upcoming headlining show at Summer Breeze festival in Germany where the band will perform classics from all of its eleven releases.

Commented KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono: "This is something that we are doing first for ourselves to look back at the long and hard road traveled and to be grateful that twenty years later this band is stronger than ever and still means something in the music world. It's an accomplishment to exist this long and this DVD is dedicated to our fans who solely kept us alive in this destructive and turbulent scene.

"I decided to scrap my book idea (it was taking way too long and time is of the essence) and instead tell our story on 'The Iron Will' in detail to get things off my chest once and for all.

"We've been the underdogs for so long and looking back, this is a good a place to be."
