Kataklysm has begun the process of putting together elements for the band's upcoming 20th anniversary DVD. Titled "The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined," this documentary will begin with the band’s inception in 1991 and tell the story behind Kataklysm's history. Director & producer Tommy Jones (Lamb Of God, Soilwork, Death Angel) will catch the band’s heartbeat on the road and to put the memories together. Expected release date is Spring 2011.

The DVD will also include interviews with a wide range of characters, including the band’s first front man Sylvain Houde, who sang on the first three Katakalysm albums. A single and a video clip for the title track “The Iron Will” will be recorded this summer. The massive content of the DVD will include Kataklysm’s upcoming headlining show at Summer Breeze Open Air in Germany.

Front man Maurizio Iacono shares:

"This is something that we are doing first for ourselves to look back at the long and hard road traveled and to be grateful that twenty years later, this band is stronger than ever and still means something in the music world. It’s an accomplishment to exist this long and this DVD is dedicated to our fans who solely kept us alive in this destructive and turbulent scene. I decided to scrap my book idea (it was taking way too long and time is of the essence) and instead tell our story on The Iron Will in detail to get things off my chest once and for all. We’ve been the underdogs for so long and looking back, this is a good a place to be."
