Kataklysm Plans Headlining N. American Tour

Quebec’s KATAKLYSM has been creating quite a stir at this year’s Summer Slaughter tour with their show stealing performances all over the North America. Now after years of hard work and other successful tours, which most recently included runs with bands like DIMMU BORGIR and CHIMAIRA, they will finally play a headlining tour of North America this fall.

The trek will last from September 28th until October 28th and will cover much of the US and Canada. Joining KATAKLYSM on the tour will be Dying Fetus (Relapse Records), ELUVEITIE (Nuclear Blast Records), and KEEP OF KALESSIN (Nuclear Blast Records).

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono could barely contain his excitement when asked about what is sure to be one of the biggest metal tours of the year:

"We’ve waited a long time for this! No more 30 minute sets and pissing our fans off every time we play with people saying ‘why didn't you play this or that.’ We’re fucking stoked to have been given this opportunity to really give our fans the show they deserve.

"We’ve also brought an elite line up of bands and friends to join us out on the road. Our great friends and brutal death metal legends DYING FETUS. From Europe, we’re bringing PaganFest stand out band ELUVEITIE with their pagan folk metal that will turn many heads. Last but not least, Norway's new kings of progressive Black Metal KEEP OF KALESSIN! A full on metal package like that hasn’t been seen in a long fucking time!

"In addition there will be a special guest in regional markets that will be revealed soon…so expect a big show with full fledged KATAKLYSM devastation. The time has finally come!"

Dying Fetus Part Ways With Guitarist Mike Kimball

DYING FETUS have posted the following update:

“Mike Kimball has resigned his position in DYING FETUS. Here is a statement from Mike: ‘This is easily the most difficult decision I’ve ever had to make in my life. I have had moments where I felt that it might be time to part ways with DYING FETUS but didn’t want to accept it, out of love for performing as a musician, and of course being less than thrilled with the prospect of disappointing my band mates or the fans. Being in DYING FETUS has been an amazing experience, and I’m eternally grateful to the guys in the band (past and present), as well as all of our crew members, all the bands we have toured with, and most of all the fans for their support. Thank you all so much!’"

"We are now holding auditions, live or video. Tablature is available on dyingfetus.com under media. Learn the songs; ‘Praise the Lord,’ ‘Pissing in the Mainstream,’ and ‘Justifiable Homicide.’ Contact us here, serious inquiries only. Must have NO criminal record and valid passport.
