Kataklysm Frontman Explains Show Cancellations

Canuck extremists KATAKLYSM were forced to cancel the shows in Dublin and Glasgow on the 21st and 22nd due to circumstances beyond the band's control. Singer Maurizio Iacono comments:

"What a disappointment it was. What happened is simple, we didn't wanna make a big fuss out of it, but the hordes of angry Scottish and Irish fans contacting us wondering why we cancelled made me issue this update. We were 10 minutes away from the ferry to Ireland when our tour manager woke us up in the early morning telling us that the driver had been arrested because of overdrives and not taking the required rest time (in europe a new law has come in six months demanding new restrictions and less road times for drivers, this law had been protested by drivers and they made an example out of us). Our driver was a cool cat, worked hard for us but he needed to get to Dublin in time so he broke the law and since it happened a few times on this tour, the bus records couldn't lie. So the officer (a douche bag by the way) had no compensation and gave us the maximum fines which included arresting the driver and taking the bus, so we were stranded in Wales. Special thanks to the Rock The Nation organization who solved the problem extremely fast and got us and ABORTED a nice hotel and we waited for a new bus to pick us up the next day, which did but just a tad too late to make it in time to Glasgow.. We will make it up next year we wont forget!! Everything else is killer - the tour was a gem and we look forward to the NB festival this weekend and going back home to pound the US and Canadian soil on the CHIMAIRA tour. It's gona kill!"

Kataklysm Check In From Europe

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono of the Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM has issued the following update:

"One week into this tour of European markets we havent hit for the last album and it seems like they've been waiting for us forever — phenomenal crowds, packed every night and having a packed house singing along… or screaming 'In Shadows and Dust' together sure makes it feel gigantic.

"We can't wait to hit Scandinavia soon and the UK as well as the other countries that are waiting for us.

"ABORTED are a powerhouse the band fucking rips live and BEHEMOTH are a fucking war machine. What a great package and great time. Everyone is having fun and getting along. Life is good — let's keep it up!"

KATAKLYSM will hit the road in North America in November/December as direct support to CHIMAIRA. Some headlining dates during the "off" days will also be announced.

Unfortunately, bassist Stephane Barbe will not be able to make the trek on the CHIMAIRA tour due to an important family obligation (Stephane and his girlfriend are expecting their first child). He will rejoin the band on the three last dates of the tour for the Montreal, Toronto and Millvale shows. KATAKLYSM will be utilizing the services of Francois Mongrain, bass player of tech death metallers MARTYR, for the tour until Stephane can rejoin the group.

KATAKLYSM has recruited producer Jason Suecof (CHIMAIRA, TRIVIUM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) to mix the album in early January. Entitled "Prevail", the CD will feature several guest appearances to be announced at a later date.

The album is scheduled for May 23, 2008 release via Nuclear Blast Records.

KATAKLYSM recently decided to "immortalize" the character that was featured on the cover of their most recent album, "In the Arms of Devastation", and have him re-appear as the main character — dubbed "The Heartbeast" — on their next offering, "Prevail".

Commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "We had so [much] killer feedback on the artwork but especially on the character that we decided to keep him as the band's fifth band member... kinda like IRON MAIDEN did with 'Eddie.' We have the perfect concept for the next album art... it will be bad-ass!"

Kataklysm Post New Album Update

Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM are well on their towards completing the recording of their new album, "Prevail".

Commented frontman Maurizio Iacono: "[I] spent the last ten days in Quebec at J-F's [producer/guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais] new studio (which is mint, by the way, feels right at home!). Got all my vocals down tight. We spent many hours listening to the tracks over and over and thinking of things we could have done differently or change on the patterns and it's all there the way it should be. I was very prepared for this album and very focused. I worked the hardest I ever have on an album. I'm happy with the results. I think people will be excited when this hits the streets. J-F is in the middle of recording his guitar tracks right now and then Stephane will hit the rumbling bass on it early next week. This album will hit you in every way possible, I promise!

"So now we are getting ready and looking forward to our European tour that starts in two weeks and also the CHIMAIRA tour. The package is diverse and interesting. We'll have a hard-hitting set list and might travel back a couple of records too. Come out and hang out and drink with us. For KATAKLYSM the best part of touring is meeting all of you and seeing you go crazy and be loud in the pit of course!"

KATAKLYSM has recruited producer Jason Suecof (CHIMAIRA, TRIVIUM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) to mix the album in early January. "Prevail" will also feature some guest appearances to be announced at a later date.

Kataklysm Offer Album Update

Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM recently entered the studio with producer/guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais to begin recording their new album, "Prevail". The recording process will last five weeks, with vocalist Maurizio Iacono scheduled to record his vocals in September.

Commented Dagenais: "I'm happy to say that we are just about done tracking drums for 'Prevail'. I'm so excited with this album and we are off to a killer start. Max's [Duhamel, drums] performance is outstanding. I've been playing with Max since 1994 and this is by far the best drum recording he has ever made. When I record artists, I push them to the maximum to get the best out of them. On this recording I had to ask Max for a break. Go figure! Anyways, the bottom line is the grooves pound the house, the blast beats are the fastest in the biz and it's intricate; he is a machine! So we're going to go over everything this weekend make sure all is good, then Tuesday Maurizio comes down to lay the law on the vocals. Can't fucking wait!"

KATAKLYSM will embark on a European tour with BEHEMOTH and ABORTED starting at the end of September. A U.S. tour with CHIMAIRA, TERROR and DIVINE HERESY will follow in November/December.

KATAKLYSM has recruited producer Jason Suecof (CHIMAIRA, TRIVIUM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) to mix the album in early January. "Prevail" will also feature some guest appearances to be announced at a later date.

The album is scheduled for May 23, 2008 release via Nuclear Blast Records.

Comments Maurizio: "The album is done and ready to go, although it was a breeze to write this album as things came so naturally, on the lyrics end, I worked the hardest I have in years making sure everything is where it should be, at times it was real difficult but the end result will speak for itself. I'm truely convinced this album will take no prisoners, as you know we don't repeat the same record twice, this album stands in a league of its own... and I'm not saying it's our best album, because only the fans have the right to say wether it is or not, all I'm saying is I listen to the songs and I wanna punch the fucking wall, that means we are on to something good."

Kataklysm Cancel US Dates

This brief announcement has been posted on KATAKLYSM's official website:

"After much thought, KATAKLYSM have decided to cancel the few dates they had lined up with DEVILDRIVER next month, in favor to enter the studio."

Comments guitarist J-F Dagenais: "I think we - all in the band - looking forward to hitting the road again and raise mayhem, but there's a lot of magic that just created with the writing process and all of us are too much into it to break the mood and progress. My studio is ready and we decided to start recording the new album 'Prevail' on August 15 and work on it til we leave for our European tour at the end of September. We also decided that we will mix the album in January in Florida with producer Jason Suecof (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, THE BLACK DHALIA MURDER), which we are looking forward to. Myself and Jason will make sure the album is as flawless as possible with a crushing production!! So for the many fans that were hitting up our MySpace and website, looking forward to seeing us live this summer... we sincerely apologize but it's for a good cause, trust me. On the other side of things, we have some very serious offers for November and December so we are planning on hitting the road in the States then. There's some big things in the horizon. We will keep you posted!"

Kataklysm Issue Studio Update

KATAKLYSM singer Maurizio Iacono has the following studio update:

"I have to take back a few things I said on my previous report, the way the album first started to get put together it seemed to be a lot more dark but in melodic way, but what makes writing so fun is you never know how the end result will be. Yesterday we finished a song called 'Breathe To Dominate' and I could already see the pit going crazy and being a live smash.

Smoothest album we have written in years. I thought In The Arms Of Devastation was a very good experience but this one is more like everyone looking at each other after completing a song… and saying… 'Perfect'.

We worked on another new song this morning, a song called 'The Vultures Are Watching'

The band is really focused. It's the first time in a very long time all four of us are writing an album together in the same room. Feeling good!"

Kataklysm Announce Title Of New Album, Tour Plans

Maurizio Iacono, vocalist for Kataklysm, has issued the following message:

First off, I want to sincerely thank everyone involved with The Invaluable Darkness Tour we just completed with our friends Dimmu Borgir. We would like to thank them for treating us like brothers and to all their crew for helping us out when we needed it. This new friendship is forged in blood! Thanks also to Devildriver whom we shared a bus with and developed a new friendship. Last but not least, the dudes in Unearth, all cool people. This tour was a triumph for us in all senses, especially to be able to play for our fans on a bigger package, who proved to us everyday that all the blood and sweat wasn't for nothing. The words of encouragement from our fans mean EVERYTHING.

"We're gonna finish writing a new album, titled 'Prevail', this summer, because we know how important this one will be for our fans, and 'prevail' is exactly what we want to do with this album. It has to be as perfect as we can make it. If it doesn't bring the goosebumps, it ain't coming out right. Guitarist J-F Dagenais will produce and engineer the album as always. In the meantime, we have two more tours planned this year: late summer or early fall in North America and in Europe in October with Behemoth and Aborted. A big thank you to all our supporters worldwide. We won't disappoint — you know how we roll!"

Dimmu Borgir Brings Invaluable Darkness To MD

Continuing my quest to explore the Baltimore metal scene, as I've previously gravitated toward DC and Northern Virginia exclusively, I made my first trip to Sonar to catch the Dimmu Borgir, Unearth, Devildriver and Kataklysm on the "Invaluable Darkness Tour" Sunday, April 29, 2007 - making this report long overdue. I'm not sure I would have ventured out to see Dimmu Borgir and Kataklysm alone even though I like them, but I enjoy Unearth's live show immensely and had yet to see Devildriver, whose last album I enjoyed a lot. I was still very interested in see Dimmu Borgir live, both because I have enjoyed their recent efforts and I had yet to catch a black metal band live in an intimate environment (Ozzfest appearances not withstanding).

Kataklysm Reports From Invaluable Darkness Tour

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono of the Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM has issued the following update:

"Here we are, almost half way through the 'Invaluable Darkness' tour and the fans' reception to KATAKLYSM has been nothing short of astonishing. Opening a tour like this is a big task for any band and on top of it, being the band on the bill with the least recognition and the only band that hasn't been on Ozzfest and tours of the like makes our job ten times harder... BUT my friends, let me tell you something — it's been the fucking opposite! Every show we came ready and determined with no expectations, so we went on and the place was full and the people were loud. They are ready for us, singing our lyrics, pounding their fists in the air and creating some of the biggest mosh pits we have ever seen in North America for KATAKLYSM. We've had several promoters coming to thank us after the show, impressed with the reactions, etc. 'Havent seen anything like it for an opening act in a very long, long time' type comments. It's really overwhelming for us and our answer to them is this: thank the fans for coming early and supporting us, thank them for making this show so great for all of us. The fans have all the power, they are the voice, not the industry. We serve the fans.

"Thank you for supporting the underdog, we love it!!!

"OK, now let's talk about the band responsible that gave KATAKLYSM the chance in the first place: DIMMU BORGIR.

"They have been phenomenal. They set a real dark ambiance and the expectation is met. I enjoy watching them every night, DEVILDRIVER and UNEARTH have also been giving 100% kicking ass and doing very good. We are getting along with everyone on the tour... and YES, for all those who are wondering, we are also sharing a bus with DEVILDRIVER, It was either gonna be the end of the world or we would respect each other and make it work. They extended their hand to us, and if I may say so myself, it's been all good. The boys have had nothing but respect for KATAKLYSM and we're having fun with them.

"Well that's it for now. Memorable, memorable... words that come to my mind. Everyone come early, don't miss out on KATAKLYSM's devastation... Be there and say hello if you see us in the crowd, we wanna meet with you."

KATAKLYSM recently decided to "immortalize" the character that was featured on the cover of their most recent album, "In the Arms of Devastation," and have him re-appear as the main character — dubbed "The Heartbeast" — on their next offering.

Commented KATAKLYSM vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "We had so [much] killer feedback on the artwork but especially on the character that we decided to keep him as the band's fifth band member... kinda like IRON MAIDEN did with 'Eddie.' We have the perfect concept for the next album art... it will be bad-ass!"

Unearth Party w/ Aqua Teen Hunger Force Pre-Tour

UNEARTH were the main attraction at last week's Adult Swim's Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film For Theatres launch party in Austin TX.

UNEARTH have recorded the song "THE CHOSEN" for the forthcoming Aqua Teen Hunger Force feature film, Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters ( in theaters on 4/13/2007) and the accompanying soundtrack Aqua Teen Hunger Force Colon Movie Film for Theaters Colon The Soundtrack (in stores on 4/10/2007).
Straight after their stint in Austin, TX, the band headed to Europe to join forces with DAATH, DESPISED ICON, and Metal Blade Record's newest member to the family, JOB FOR A COWBOY on a tour that will lead into late April.

"We are all eager as fuck to headline the UK and Europe for the first time. We have done some amazing European tours before, but it will feel damn good to play a full set and put on our show for our friends overseas" says vocalist, Trevor Phipps "We are hitting up some smaller venues, most without barricades, so we can bring a real Unearth show to the people. We hand picked Job For a Cowboy, Despised Icon and Daath to make sure the entire bill was one that will keep the crowds looking over their shoulders at all times!"

UNEARTH will then make their way back to the US for the highly anticipated tour with DIMMU BORGIR, DEVILDRIVER and KATAKLYSM.

"After the headlining run we come right back home for a North American tour with Dimmu Borgir, Devildriver and Kataklysm. We haven't hit the road with Dimmu since the 2004 Ozzfest, so it will be good to get out there and do it again in a club setting. Devil Driver is always a great band to share the stage with and Kataklysm is one of the best death metal bands around today" enthuses Phipps "This tour is going to be an un-fucking-real diverse clash of heavy music... good times ahead!"

Check out UNEARTH on tour on the following dates: More...
