Vocalist Maurizio Iacono on the new release: "With everything that’s going on in the world, we couldn’t have chosen a better title. This album is a rebirth of aggression for KATAKLYSM. No one planned this to happen the way it did, but the name of this album makes total sense right now. It’s an aggressive album, yes, but a positive aggression." Guitarist JF Dagenais adds: "To me, the music delivers the band’s exact meaning. The force behind everything; that driving force of never giving up. We have been here so long now, and these songs represent that very well."

I didn't know Colin Richardson was still around. I've always liked the way his albums sound. I believe at least it will have good production value. Track is solid.
Digging: Black Crown Initiate - Violent Portraits of Doomed Escape
kind of a weird deathcore vibe but it's more interesting than anything off their last album
Digging: Anaal Nathrakh - In the Constellation of the Black Widow
" but it's more interesting than anything off their last album"
That's a fact.
i have a soft spot for the band really hope it isn't deathcore, aw man. i like ex deo also interesting side project of this band. Im biased because the main guy in the band is really nice and i like his personality so its hard for me to trash the band.
Digging: Entombed - Left Hand Path
also the band is probably a lot deeper than youd think, a lot of thought goes into the concepts behind this band's output and especially the ex deo stuff.
"really hope it isn't deathcore"
Melo DM at most, not deathcore ;)
I remember enjoying Of Ghosts and Gods back in the day, which had great production as well, so I look forward to this, even more so since Colin Richardson is on board.
Digging: Qualm - Tiefe
This is incredibly awful. Getting some wtf Djent and Rap vibes from this...
Good music news, promising LP, sweet :]
kataklysm always were a bit of a trend hopper band. the vocals are not good, this is not very good
lol this band
wtf they are baroness now
in all seriousness, weak song. Sounds like cheaply produced amon amarth/at the gates x whitechapel
yeh i don't think the deathcore leanings do this band any favours
Yea the deathcore sound doesn't sound great but oh well, it's not too jarring. Haven't listened to these guys since Prevail but I always thought they were fairly enjoyable in small doses.
