Kataklysm has managed to sell around 900 copies of their 2006 CD "In the Arms of Devastation" in the United States during the seven days ending June 3, 2007. The album's total U.S. sales now stand at just under 19,000, according to Nielsen SoundScan, landing them on Billboard's Heatseeker charts.

The band had this to say in response, "Dear fans, your boys in KATAKLYSM keep making impressive impacts... The latest being the band's latest opus and newly rereleased 'In the Arms of Devastation' album, which just hit the Heatseekers chart in Billboard on position #9 in the USA!! According to the band's label Nuclear Blast, this is phenomenal and unheard of for an album that is over one year old to chart! So a BIG thank you to all of you for your endless support. Get ready for our next album 'Prevail' because it will slaughter!!!!"

In followup to previous reports, Metal Reigns has posted a 20-minute audio interview with guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais, conducted during the band's recent Invaluable Darkness Tour with DIMMU BORGIR. Download and listen to the interview at their website.
