Thumbs up Kataklysm's J-F Dagenais comments on new album

KATAKLYSM Writing "Very Personal" New Album
Posted on Tuesday, December 01, 2009 on Bravewords

Quebec metallers KATAKLYSM are currently writing the
follow up to their 2008 album, Prevail. The band has also
confirmed the mixing duties for the next offering.

Comments guitarist J-F Dagenais: "I'm really excited to be deep into the writing
process for the new Kataklysm album, the band is more focused then ever: This album
will be different then Prevail, but will still have the classic Kataklysm trademarks
and hooks. You will see a much more intricate record then we've done in the past.
It will contain some really fast and dynamic parts, but we will also aim on a very
melodic driven record and it will contain lots of technical parts as well that we
haven't explored much lately.

And no worries, the bone crushing grooves are always a must with Kataklysm and will be present.
I've also seen Maurizio's lyrics for this album so far and let me tell you that they hit really hard.
I know it's a very personal album to him as he is going through some tough times in his personal life.
So I'm not worried on what he will bring to this record, so expect a very real, aggressive and
determined Kataklysm album!

We know we have set the bar high for ourselves, but we are confident to deliver the goods once again.
On the production end I will handle the recording as usual, but for the mix we have decided to
enlist Tue Madsen from Denmark.

We feel he captured best the band's sound on In The Arms Of Devastation. We feel it's a winning team
and we're gonna make sure you have the best sounding record to date."

On Christmas day on the band's Facebook, Twitter and Myspace pages,
Kataklysm vocalist Maurizio Iacono will reveal the band`s new album title.

The album is scheduled for release late summer / early fall 2010 via Nuclear Blast.

Awesome, thanks for the post.

Sounds like this is gonna be a ballbreaker on paper...

Blastbeats and dynamics? Check.
Melody? Check.
Killer Groove? Check
Intricate, technical olden days stuff? FUCKIN CHECK!!!!

That got me excited... I hope they whip up some crazy shit in there. It's also good to see the boys are still so pumped and inspired 20 years and 10 records later. Props!!

Madsen mixing again... hmm... I kinda bagged ITAOD as sounding a bit too cold and processed.. didn't dig the drum sound that much. Hopefully they get a better sound on the new one with him.
