KATAKLYSM - announce »Meditations« chart entries!

KATAKLYSM - »Meditations« chart entries! - 2018-06-14

2018-06-14 - "Truly impressive how they produce this spontaneous rejuvenated energy! A dense attack of sharp guitars and catchiness vs. heavyness.”
Vera Matthijssens, ROCK TRIBUNE (B)

“With »Meditations«, KATAKLYSM went back to their past musical deep brutality, well-balanced with emotional catchy melodies. A step forward for the band who will most probably gain back some old and new fans on this process.”
Judith Halberstam, METALLIAN (F)

"Mighty death-led noblesse, towering with Melo-Death finesse and powerful hardcore explosions. Variation, complexity and diversification to the power of 10!"
Markus Eck, SONIC SEDUCER (D)

"Don't let the album title fool you. While it may conjure images of mellow, quiet introspection and "thinking about your happy place," Meditations is hard-hitting and forceful."
METAL INJECTION

"Through changing times, Kataklysm carry the torch, once again finding themselves with a well-thought-out and well-organized album of the perfect length that will capture the mind of their fans."
CRYPTIC ROCK

"The rage and impressive skill in these musicians is ever apparent, and the variety of changes they have consisted and run with, proves that KATAKLYSM are a band that continue to grow, and create more music with a purpose."
DISTORTED SOUND

Montréal based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM unleashed their new studio album »Meditations«, on June 1st through Nuclear Blast Records. Thanks to their loyal fanbase, the band is proud to announce that their new record has reached the following chart positions:

#21 Germany
#23 Switzerland
USA:
#3 Heatseekers/Top New Artist
#7 Current Hard Music
#15 Top Current Rock
#52 Top Current Albums
Canada:
#12 Hard Music Albums
#80 Top Current Albums

"It's times like these that all the sacrifices and all the pain endured over the years comes to be worth it in this business. When people come together and appreciate a work of art that you have done and they are able to relate and support it. Having our best first week debut ever and even hitting the top 100 Billboard album charts doesn't change anything for us or our work ethic but it sure feels good after 26 years of hard work! Thank you to all our fans - old and new - for the soulful lift. Come and see us rip this album live! m/" - KATAKLYSM

Produced by the band's own guitarist J-F Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin, the record was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR a.o.). Mastering duties were handled by Paul Logus (PANTERA a.o.). The artwork was created by Ocvlta Designs by Surtsey, who also crafted the artwork for KATAKLYSM's previous record, »Of Ghosts And Gods«.

A gift to the fans is the bonus live DVD of the new album, which was filmed in Munich, Germany on October 21, 2017 on the »A Moment In Time« tour. The DVD features the performance of the band's two classic albums, »Shadows & Dust« and »Serenity in Fire« in their entirety. The concert was captured by several cameras and recorded live in front of a full house of fans from around the world. Mixed by the band's guitarist J-F Dagenais, the feature also includes interviews with the band members about that very special tour and the new album »Meditations«.

Born in 1992 from the cold winds of Montréal, Québec, Canada comes one of the country's top extreme musical exports to date: KATAKLYSM. With a career spanning 25 years, KATAKLYSM is a leading force in the most brutal & powerful genre in heavy metal and has conquered territories such as Europe, North & South America, Australia, and Asia while recently becoming the first Canadian metal band to ever play South Africa.

They've spent the last 25 years cementing their legacy in the extreme metal genre. 2016 marked a whirlwind of excitement as the band added a Juno Award to their collection as well as landing their highest Billboard charting. They are one of a handful of bands that have the title of "Longest Standing Artist" on the Nuclear Blast roster.
