"Prevail", the most recently acclaimed album by Canada's hyperblasters KATAKLYSM, has won for "Album Of The Year" in the "Metal/Hardcore" category at the Quebec Indie Music Awards (GAMIQ), an awards show that recognizes achievements by Quebec independent artists. The event is produced by the Quebec Independent Music Association which is also behind the Montreal International Music Initiative (MIMI). KATAKLYSM has released the following statement in regards to this rather flattering victory:

“KATAKLYSM would like to thank the board of judges and all the people that voted for ‘Prevail’. We were super psyched as it was just to be nominated but now that we’ve actually won we can’t really explain how great it feels. It’s definitely an honor, especially since we were up against some great artists. What a great way to start our North American tour in a few days! We can’t wait to get out there and show the rest of the world what Quebec already knows; KATAKLYSM will ‘Prevail’!"

Those that were nominated this year included:

TEARS FOR THE SKY - "Boredomville II"
MENACE RUINE - "Cult of Ruins"
KOSMOS - "Kosmos"
ION DISSONANCE - "Minus The Herd"
KATAKLYSM - "Prevail"

So f***ing what ? Let them be separatists if they want to, it doesn't mean that we all are. I am not for one. In fact I come from Quebec city and if you look closely, we voted for Harper last time and he is still ahead this time as well. So were are you from in Canada ?

Hey it's all a big misunderstanding because you said they're French like it was some kind of disease. Believe me man, I hate all those feuds between people in Canada. I am a proud Canadian and I love our country, all of it. And seriously, most French Canadians are like me. Separatists are scared little people. They are scared and annoying. We should give them an island somewhere far away so we can all live in peace and harmony. and they all smell bad, they all smoke, they all have beards (ok they don't but I too really dislike them).
So don't worry, I always cheer for team Canada...
