According to Nuclear Blast, Northern hyperblast kings KATAKLYSM from Canada know one thing for sure: to stay in the game you have to work hard continuously!
So these guys keep releasing awe-inspiring extreme metal albums regularly and seem to be on the road pretty much the rest of the time.
After the release of their latest studio album “Heaven`s venom” (2010) and the massive anniversary live package “Iron will” (2012), their highly-anticipated new record “Waiting for the end to come” will see the light of day on October 25, 2013 and it´s surely going to butcher
the competition. Once again.
KATAKLYSM guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais helmed the production of this upcoming masterpiece of brutality and melody once more, while legend Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED and many more) took care of the mixing. The artwork by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, HATEBREED) will be featured on the deluxe digipak and LP versions of their new album and the cover by Peter Sallai, who is known for his artworks done for SABATON, will be featured on the standard jewel case and limited edition cassette tape versions.

And KATAKLYSM wouldn`t be KATAKLYSM if they hadn`t already mapped out the next tour – they`ll embark on a European headlining run in
January and February 2014 which marks their first tour on the old continent in almost 3 years, so all fans better buckle-up for this full-blown
death metal onslaught which is about to gut Europe.
“It´s been almost three years since our last club tour in Europe and we are so excited to come back and blow off the roof of every club next
January & February. We’ve built an album that will stand the test time and will need many headbangers, body surfers and mosh pits to give it justice and we are building a special show that you will never forget. This time, after almost a decade we have decided to tour the UK as well, after seeing the reactions at this years Bloodstock Open Air. There´s no doubt it´s time to come destroy. Raise your pints!” Maurizio Iacono/KATAKLYSM
Supporting them will be Brasilian death metal veterans KRISIUN, who are working on their new and yet untitled album. FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE are also part of the billing and pose a special treat for sure! They mix brutal tech death with symphonic, opera-like arrangements. Their third album “Labyrinth” just came out.
