KATAKLYSM – Interview with Jean-Francois (JF) Dagenais

After nearly 25 years in the death metal trenches, the Canadian-born/now multinational-based quartet Kataklysm have established a pretty solid brand for themselves. And recently they’ve started working to expand their product line – literally.

With frontman Maurizio Iacono having dabbled in the restaurant business in Chicago, Kataklysm introduced a line of signature hot sauces early this year. They are following that up this summer with their own beer. Called St. Tabarnak, the somewhat blasphemous blonde ale is being specially brewed by Brouwerij Eutropius, a relative newcomer to the legendary Belgian beer scene based in Heule.

In the meantime, the band are still going about their usual business of making music. At the end of July, Kataklysm will issue their 12th studio full length, Of Ghosts And Gods, and spend the summer playing festivals around Europe. In the fall, they will play at Slipknot’s “Knotfest” in California and are planning North American tour dates with Belphegor around that time. They will launch a full European tour with Septicflesh and Aborted early in the new year.

After fetching a fresh cup of joe, founding guitarist Jean-Francois (JF) Dagenais spoke over Skype from his home outside of then-flood-ravaged Texas about the band’s crazy schedule, what’s “new” about the new album, the unique way it’s being promoted and Kataklysm’s other endeavors, which he feels will not only offer the chance for the band to have a little fun but also resonate more with fans in an industry where these days it’s every band for themselves.

Producer Flemming Rasmussen is best known in metal circles as the producer for Metallica’s classic Ride The Lightning (’84), Master Of Puppets (’86) and … And Justice For All (’88) albums. He recently spoke with Ultimate-Guitar.com about working with Metallica and addressed the controvery surrounding the “missing” bass tracks on …And Justice For All. An excerpt is available below.

Rasmussen:

“I never understood why the bass was never louder on the album. But you’ll have to talk to Lars (Ulrich) and James (Hetfield) about that. Jason (Newsted) was technically a better bass player than Cliff (Burton). He was much tighter and faster and all this.

Musically I don’t know. Did he ever co-write any of the songs? He probably did on the later albums but they never really gave the poor guy a chance. Did they?

I’m one of the few persons who heard the bass tracks on …And Justice for All and as far as I’m concerned they’re absolutely killer. He did a really good job on that.

I’d love to remix that album. I’m pretty sure the guys who did it (Steve Thompson and Michael Barbiero), I know they would love to mix it again. Because they set it up and made it sound good and then Lars and James came in and fucked it all up, hahaha.”

Nuclear Assault conquered the speed/thrash metal scene of the 80’s with a razor sharp sound with crossover elements. Nuclear Assault’s lyrics were based on the everyday reality that we are facing even nowadays. The band’s albums HANDLE WITH CARE, SURVIVE, and GAME OVER are the obvious thrash metal gems. Even though Nuclear Assault have been on hiatus from time to time, once again the four piece have returned with a new EP and a massive European festival tour. Metal-Rules.com sat down with John Connelly, Glenn Evans and Dan Lilker to talk about various and interesting topics.
