the poetry of war - 2001-03-28

2001-03-28 - The Canadian Hyperblasters Kataklysm have just finished work on their new masterpiece "EPIC (The Poetry of War)". The recording of the album went very smoothly and the band was successful in capturing what they aimed for... The album was recorded at Victor studio. Production-wise, guitarist/producer J-F Dagenais did an excellent job once again, bringing the production a step higher than the critically acclaimed "The Prophecy" album.

For full details check out their IN STUDIO report in the next BW&BK magazine issue & soon here on http://www.nuclearblast.de!

The release date is schedueled for September 3rd!! The official track listing is as follows:
1- Il Diavolo in me
2- Shivers of a new world
3- Era of the mercyless (Roma Part 1)
4- As the glorious weep (Roma Part 2)
5- Damnation is here
6- Manipulator of souls
7- Wounds
8- What we endure
9- When time stands still...

Due to KATAKLYSM's 10th anniversary this year, Nuclear Blast will be releasing a "surprise" limited edition with the new album EPIC (the poetry of war) to thank the Kataklysm legions worlwide!!

Kataklysm has also a new website adresse: http://www.kataklysm.net. Keep visiting regularly for updates and sample of a new song from the upcoming album - which promises to be the best Kataklysm release to date!!

Touring:
Kataklysm has confirmed a full Canadian tour in August w/QUO VADIS as support. There are talks about a July tour w/ VADER as well in the US, part of the "Summertime Slaughter" festivals... More details upon confirmation.
Kataklysm also appears on the "INTO THE BLIZZARD... Canadian Assault" compilation cd with the track "STORMLAND". For more details visit http://www.skyscrapermusic.com

On other Kataklysm related subjects - The Infamous THE COALITION project is on hold (maybe permanently!) due to the hectic schedule of all people concerned + the lack of communication between Cryptopsy and KATAKLYSM. Due to the reasons previously stated, it is making THE COALITION close to impossible to take off the ground! So we will keep you updated if anything changes and we are sorry for the inconvenience... We wanted this cool project to happen too!

Kataklysm vocalist Maurizio Iacono will continue studio work this Spring on his solo project L.O.S.T. with his debut release "Living On Sympathy & Trust". Thrash-fulled anger!!!... Coming in 2002.

Stay tuned for more news soon... Cheers from the KATAKLYSM crew!!
