Kataklysm have announced that they will be entering the studio in January to begin working on the follow-up to 2013’s Waiting for the End to Come. Production duties will be split three ways with the band’s guitarist J-F Dagenais in charge of tracking all instruments, producer Mark Lewis handling vocals, and acclaimed producer Andy Sneap mixing and mastering the affair. The band is looking at next summer for the release on Nuclear Blast. A statement was posted to the band’s Facebook on what’s to come:
“There is no rest for the wicked as they say. 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! We’ve been secretly working hard on a monstrous new album, and will enter the studio next January to start tracking.
The process will take three months to complete, with three different producers at the helm. Seasoned guitarist and longtime studio engineer J-F Dagenais will be tracking drums, guitars and bass, while traveling between Montreal and Texas. Vocalist Maurizio Iacono will be tracking vocals in Florida with producer Mark Lewis (Whitechapel, DevilDriver, Cannibal Corpse). The entire process will be mixed and mastered in the UK by legendary producer Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Testament, Exodus>, Amon Amarth).
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!”
