ABOUT: Spread The Metal Fest was inspired by STM Records owner Matt Day, whom previously worked for HSF as a volunteer and decided it was time to give back to the community and help an organization and cause that promotes awareness of heart disease along with financial support.

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.

KATAKLYSM ANNOUNCE DETAILS OF NEW DVD

February 16th, 2011
KATAKLYSM

KATAKLYSM

KATAKLYSM have begun the long process of putting together elements for their upcoming 20th anniversary DVD.  Titled THE IRON WILL: 20 Years Determined, this documentary will begin with the band’s inception in 1991 and tell the lasting story behind of one of the most important extreme musical exports in Canada’s short 143-year history.  Director & producer Tommy Jones (Lamb Of God, Soilwork, Death Angel) will catch the band’s heartbeat on the road and to put the memories together.  Expected release date is Spring 2011.

The DVD will also include interviews with a wide range of characters, including the band’s infamous first frontman Sylvain Houde, who sang on the first three KATAKLYSM albums: The Mystical Gate Of Reincarnation (1993), Sorcery (1996), and Temple Of Knowledge (1999).

A single and a video clip for the title track “The Iron Will” will be recorded this summer.  The massive content of the DVD will include KATAKLYSM’s upcoming headlining show at Summer Breeze Open Air in Germany where the band will perform classics from all of its eleven releases.

KATAKLSYM frontman Maurizio Iacono shares:

“This is something that we are doing first for ourselves to look back at the long and hard road traveled and to be grateful that twenty years later, this band is stronger than ever and still means something in the music world.  It’s an accomplishment to exist this long and this DVD is dedicated to our fans who solely kept us alive in this destructive and turbulent scene.  I decided to scrap my book idea (it was taking way too long and time is of the essence) and instead tell our story on THE IRON WILL in detail to get things off my chest once and for all.  We’ve been the underdogs for so long and looking back, this is a good a place to be.”

In North America, 2010’s Heaven’s Venom debuted at #7 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart and at #196 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, making it the highest charting album of KATAKLYSM’s career.  In Europe, Heaven’s Venom debuted at #32 in Germany, #35 in Austria, and #53 in Switzerland.

KATAKLYSM also holds the honor of being the first band to have their songs feature Rock Band’s new double bass drum pedal application, available now on Rock Band versions 2 and 3.  Click on the following song titles to purchase them from the RockBand Network:

KATAKLYSM: N. American Leg of World Tour Announced!

November 16th, 2010
KATAKLYSM: "Heaven's Venom"

KATAKLYSM: "Heaven's Venom"

Montreal based extreme metallers KATAKLYSM are pleased to announce, in cooperation with Decibel Magazine and SickDrummerMagazine.com, the North American leg of their “Spread the Venom 2010 – 2011 World Tour“! Joining them will be groove ladden death shredders ALL SHALL PERISH, technical/progressive death masters DECREPIT BIRTH, Sumerian Records‘ touring juggernaut CONDUCTING FROM THE GRAVE, and Relapse Records‘ modern death metal merchants ABYSMAL DAWN. This will be just a part of a massive worldwide tour, that is rumored to be the bands last before a much needed break from the bands extensive performance schedule. Don’t miss out!

“In just about a month we will embark on  KATAKLYSM‘s longest one way headlining stretch crossing four continents in nearly 20 years,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “Heaven’s Venom has been welcomed with open arms by fans and critics alike across the globe. As I mentioned before in interviews, Heaven’s Venom is a very personal, aggressive and dark KATAKLYSM album that hits home. We love this album and want to share its anger with our fans! We want to play places we have never been before and also revisit our loyal supporters while creating some new fans along the way. One thing we know, is that this will be the only time you will be able to see the band on this record or for a long time. So don’t say ‘I’ll catch them the next time’ because there might not be a next time. We are thinking of taking along break after this massive trek and who knows what will happen next. So if you are a fan of KATAKLYSM you have been called to duty!”
