Montreal death-metal powerhouse, KATAKLYSM, have been quietly working on new material for the past several months for their long awaited follow-up to the highly successful Heaven’s Venom album.
“Well it’s been a seriously busy ride since our last album Heaven’s Venom was released over 3 years ago,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “From a successful world headlining run, to Ozzfest, into a recap of our 20 years as band with the Iron Will DVD. We’ve been writing in a very humble fashion behind the scenes for the last six months. It’s time to take KATAKLYSM to higher levels and dig deep into our capacities as musicians and songwriters. We know exactly what we have to do, that’s why we have taken our time and why we’ll be taking most of the Summer to complete the new album.The record will deal lyrically with mortality and the purpose of ones being on this earth. The moment we are born we start to die. It’s a sort of deal we make with life, and with that I title the new KATAKLYSM album ‘Waiting for the End to Come'”.
Waiting for the End to Comeis tentatively scheduled for a late 2013 / early 2014 release. The album will be recorded by guitarist Jean Francois Dagenais (MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX, DESPISED ICON, EX DEO) and mixed by Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, ARSIS)
The band is scheduled to enter JFD studio in Montreal and Dallas in June/July 2013.
