KATAKLYSM Comment on Drummer’s Time Off

April 9th, 2013
Max Duhamel

KATAKLYSM – Max Duhamel

Max Duhamel, drummer of the Montreal based death metal powerhouse, KATAKLYSM, recently announced that he is taking a break from the band and won’t be performing on their new record. “I have been struggling with many personal issues the last year but lately, the main one has been alcohol,” commented Duhamel previously. “It’s been affecting my body in a very negative way  to the point that when I came home after the EX DEO tour we just did, I tried to stop drinking for few days and it’s been very hard without having any with drawls symptoms. I’ve also lost a lot of weight as some of noticed recently and I’m not in good shape.”

KATAKLYSM have released the following statement in response:

“We as a band of brothers stand by Max‘s decision to get better and to rise from his demons. We all have them; some of us try to hide them and pretend they don’t exist, some of us have the courage to confront them. Max has shown strength to fight his. We stand by him and hope that he returns home when he is ready. In the meanwhile, I want everyone to know for those who haven’t seen the Iron Will documentary that this band’s story is one of drama, pain and the long road to victory. We will practice what we preach on our album and we will come out swinging hard and strong with this new record. We will find a suitable replacement and we will announce him in the next few weeks. We will not disappoint any of you. We have read the messages of encouragements you have posted; we have the best fans. As the saying goes ‘the show must go on.’ Here’s a cool clip we found from Rocky that describes well what is to come from your  veterans (http://youtu.be/dtjGvBnAxVE). ‘Horse power.’ See you soon.”

KATAKLYSM: Working on New Album / Album Title Announced

April 2nd, 2013

kata10.JPGMontreal based death metal powerhouse, KATAKLYSM, have been quietly working on new material for the past several months for their long awaited follow-up to the highly successful Heaven’s Venom album. Heaven’s Venom was released on August 24th 2010 in North America and debuted at #196 on the Billboard Top Current Albums chart, making it the band’s highest charting album and their biggest first week sales to date. This will now be the band’s longest stretch between records.

“Well it’s been a seriously busy ride since our last album Heaven’s Venom was released over 3 years ago,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “From a successful world headlining run, to Ozzfest, into a recap of our 20 years as band with the Iron Will DVD. We’ve been writing in a very humble fashion behind the scenes for the last six months. It’s time to take KATAKLYSM to higher levels and dig deep into our capacities as musicians and songwriters. We know exactly what we have to do, that’s why we have taken our time and why we’ll be taking most of the Summer to complete the new album. The record will deal lyrically with mortality and the purpose of ones being on this earth. The moment we are born we start to die. It’s a sort of deal we make with life, and with that I title the new KATAKLYSM album Waiting for the End to Come.

Waiting for the End to Come is tentatively scheduled for a late 2013 / early 2014 release. The album will be recorded by guitarist Jean Francois Dagenais and mixed by Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, ARSIS) Read the rest of this entry »

KATAKLYSM / EX DEO Frontman Maurizio Iacono – “You’re Not Hurting The Labels By Illegal Downloading, You’re Killing The Bands”

April 29th, 2012

Vocalist Maurizio Iacono (KATAKLYSM, EX DEO) issued the below message in the wake of the news that Roadrunner Records was shutting down its European offices, and that their CEO Cees Wessels was stepping down:
“This is just the beginning Not buying albums is affecting the labels who in return invest in the bands, tour support, recording .. it’s destroying all newcomer bands and its making middle class musicians poor. You’re not hurting the labels by illegal downloading, you’re killing the bands.

Starting a band these days is a suicide mission. If music becomes a hobby for musicians, then no more tours, no more good music. Dark times ahead. Well, wait, we have holograms now, don’t need REAL people on stage… my bad …

It’s not true that bands don’t need labels. Ask a 16-year-old kid who just started a band what to do. The power of record labels to fly journalists, to market, to distribute is SUPER important. With time you get the knowledge to do a lot of things, but to run a business (yes running a band is business) + touring worldwide to please fans that want to see you is nearly impossible. You need labels. Even if they become more of a management thing in the future, you need them.

Right now, with record sales getting lower and people buying less and less product, labels are saying ‘Sure, we’ll buy your flights, we’ll promote the band, we’ll give you tour support to buy a van or rent, but give us your merch.’ After you do that you starve to death.

Again, it’s not about me. I’ve had a great 20 years; if it ends tomorrow I can keep my head help up high for what I’ve done, but what about the new comers and the future of music? NOT good. It’s not you the fans’ fault, don’t get me wrong. It’s the system that let it happen. Governments, etc. could have stopped it. They didn’t. Now it’s up to us, the fans, to help out.

Buy a shirt, CD, vinyls, download on iTunes, Amazon, the songs you like .. DO SOMETHING! I love you all, and always remember, you guys have all the power to build or destroy, we are only messengers of your voice.”

About: Spread the Metal Records is an artist-oriented label. They recognize the commitment of all those who have signed with them and those who continue to support them in other ways. A label is only as strong as its artists, and indeed the job of the record label is to create an environment where they can pursue their artistic vision. That means giving straight answers, holding themselves accountable, taking responsibility for their mistakes, and recognizing their own limitations. STM believes in every release that they put out and they have more respect for the fans than to expose them to a sub-par album. STM demands the best from themselves, and so they can’t accept any less from the bands that they represent.

KATAKLYSM – Update/Interview from Guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais

March 15th, 2011

Hank Pearl from THE DAILY ROCK (http://www.thedailyrock.com)  interviews Jean-Francois Dagenais, guitarist for Canadian melodic death metal band KATAKLYSM, before the band performs at Reggie’s Rock Club in Chicago on their “Spread The Venom” tour.

The two discuss how a band that has been around for two decades can just now break Billboard’s Heatseakers chart, the various meanings behind the new “Heaven’s Venom” album, and why a man like Dagenais, who performs with and produces many other acts, keeps coming back to KATAKLYSM no matter what.
