2002-09-02 - KATAKLYSM have just returned from the "Death across America" tour and are preparing to embark on a full scale coast to coast Canadian tour for Sept/Oct with support coming via Montreal's NecronomicoN (Unique Leader) and Toronto's Blood of Christ (Skyscraper). Dates to follow shortly.

KATAKLYSM's new album "Shadows & Dust" (set to be released Sept. 23rd in Europe and Oct. 15 worldwide) is receiving great initial reaction and is being acclaimed as one of 2003's best metal albums... These are the first review scores from major publications just in:

-Metal Hammer 7/7 (Germany)
-Metal Heart 10/10 (Germany)
-Rock hard 9/10 (Germany)
-Legacy 14/15 (Germany)
-Heavy Oder Was!? 11/12 (Germany)
-Aaardshock 88/100 (Holland)
-Unrestrained! 9.5/10 (Canada)
-NGR 87/100 (Norway)

The "Shadows & Dust" touring campaign will start in late Nov. with a month-length European tour where the band will hit the UK, France, Spain and Portugal with Hate Eternal and Deranged, to further conclude with the x-mass festivals (Germany, Austria, Switzerland, France, Belgium and Holland) with Six Feet Under, Marduk, Dying Fetus, Hate Eternal, Immolation, Macabre and Ragnarok.

KATAKLYSM is also in talks to shoot a videoclip for the song "Beyond Salvation" in Regina (Alberta) during their upcoming Canadian tour. More details to follow...

In other related KATAKLYSM news, guitarist/producer J-F Dagenais is presently in Tampa (Florida) putting final touchs on the mix for Malevolent Creation's forthcoming album "The Will to Kill".

Due to legal circumstances, Maurizio Iacono's solo project L.O.S.T. has changed names to STAMINA and has left former management Hypnotic, and is presently considering new management offers. STAMINA is working on its second demo with Columbia/Sony writer/producer Ashton Price (Kazzer/Melinda Shank). The band already had a succesfull showcase for Dave McPheerson of Epic Records. "It's been a really busy year with KATAKLYSM and STAMINA" says Maurizio. "I had to take some serious decisions about my career. We've had great success lately with KATAKLYSM and the interest for my solo project STAMINA has been overwhelming. Epic among others expressed interest for STAMINA (L.O.S.T.) and turned around everything I did to make us sound like a Linkin Park/POD type of band. I knew I had to get out of there, it's not me. I refuse to be manipulated like a puppet, I'd rather sign to an indie that understands what I'm doing rather than a major who doesn't give a shit about what I am or want. STAMINA is a metal band, not fucking pop! I thank writer Ashton Price for beleiving in this project and for sticking with me no matter what". STAMINA will be shopping its second demo in early 2003. The band continues to write in between KATAKLYSM tours for their debut album "Tales from the Gutter".
