Montreal-based death metallers KATAKLYSM will release new album, “Of Ghosts And Gods”, on July 31 via Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork for the follow-up to “Waiting For The End To Come” will be unveiled on March 23.
Guitarist Jean-François “JF” Dagenais will track drums, guitars and bass for the album, while vocals were recorded by producer Mark Lewis (WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, CANNIBAL CORPSE). The effort will be mixed and mastered in the U.K. by British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, AMON AMARTH).
Says the band: “KATAKLYSM has been full of inspiration and are in full determination mode lately; a rejuvenated band that is out to conquer the world with no sign of stopping!
“This promises to be the album that will once and for all establish KATAKLYSM as one of the top pioneers of the genre!
“The latest material will be touching on some new ground while maintaining the aggressive edge the band has always been known for.
“The chemistry with new drummer Oli Beaudoin is incredible, and the four horsemen promise some crushing new material coming your way. Death metal hymns are arriving!”
KATAKLYSM had one of the busiest year in its entire career supporting “Waiting For The End To Come”. The band launched a successful run in Australia and Japan a year ago and made its way to many other countries, including some first-time stops in places like Brazil and South Africa, among others. This December, the campaign, which saw the band play 150 shows, will conclude with three concerts in Mexico.
