Posted: February 23, 2018
Montréal based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM have completed work on their latest effort, »Meditations« - the soon to be released album which consists of 10 blistering tracks. Produced by the band's own guitarist J-F Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin, the record was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR a.o.). Mastering duties were handled by Paul Logus (PANTERA a.o.). Today, the band are pleased to unveil the »Meditations« cover artwork, which can be seen here. It was created by Ocvlta Designs by Surtsey, who also crafted the artwork for KATAKLYSM's previous record, »Of Ghosts And Gods«. Singer Maurizio Iacono commented, "This is a very personal album to me with old wounds being revisited – I felt a big urge to pour my soul into this release. The boys and I were isolated under the same roof during the writing process, just like we did in the early days...with no worries except having fun, being honest and delivering a serious album that represents us today but respects our past. Our new story is coming and we are eager to share it with you!" »Meditations« - Track Listing: 01. Guillotine 02. Outsider 03. The Last Breath I'll Take Is Yours 04. Narcissist 05. Born To Kill And Destined To Die 06. In Limbic Resonance 07. And Then I Saw Blood 08. What Doesn't Break Doesn't Heal 09. Bend The Arc, Cut The Cord 10. Achilles Heel »Meditations« marks the return to old work ethics. All four band members wrote and composed together under the same roof for the first time in over a decade and returned to the old days of songwriting efforts which saw the band's classics such as »Shadows & Dust«, »Serenity In Fire« and »In The Arms Of Devastation« come to life.
