Canada's very own Kataklysm are among the nominees in the category for "Favorite Metal Artist/Group" at the Canadian Independent Music Awards ("The Indies"), which will be held at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto, ON on Wednesday, March 2 at 9 PM. "The Indies" will serve as the official Canadian Music Week 2005 Opening Night party, kicking off the festivities for the CMW Music Festival, running from March 2-5.
