Canadian death metal veterans Kataklysm released the official music video for 'The Killshot', first single from their upcoming 14th full length studio album Unconquered, out September 25th via Nuclear Blast Records. The album was mixed by iconic producer Colin Richardson (Machine head , Carcass , Slipknot ) & Chris Clancy (Mutiny Within).

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."

Unconquered tracklist:

01. The Killshot
02. Cut Me Down
03. Underneath The Scars
04. Focused To Destroy You
05. The Way Back Home
06. Stitches
07. Defiant
08. Icarus Falling
09. When It’s Over

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.

kind of a weird deathcore vibe but it's more interesting than anything off their last album

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.

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.

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.

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.
