Kataklysm Finish Writing New Album, Plan Fall Release

by | Mar 11, 2010

Kataklysm have completed the song writing process for their new album, “Heaven’s Venom”. The record is tentatively scheduled for a Fall 2010 release via Nuclear Blast.

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono commented:

“It’s done after two years of hard work! We really made sure we had every element covered, going over all the riffs and arrangements hundreds of times to make it the best it could be. Our fans have given us so much over the years and it was time for us, without any label pressure or time limit, to give back with the album they have been waiting for. We think we’ve accomplished something special, but we are not going to say this is the heaviest or best KATAKLYSM and all that stuff. The fans will decide that. I just know the mission is accomplished when all of us have big cheesy smiles on our faces!”

“We’re going to take a little break now and hit the road with KREATOR, which should be a lot of fun! Come party with us and hang out. As soon as we are back we will give the album one last check up and then start recording this beast. Should be warped up and mixed by this summer. Next year it will be the bands 20th anniversary so you can bet that we will deliver the goods. We promise! Lots of cool surprises ahead. See ya!”

Tentative song titles for “Heaven’s Venom” include “Soul Made of Shrapnel”, “Blind Savior”, “Hail the Renegade”, and “Push the Venom”.
