Over 200 pictures of the KATAKLYSM, BEHEMOTH (including backstage pictures of the band getting ready for the gig), ABORTED (after a spontaneous hair-cutting session at the Z7 bathroom) and LYFTHRASYR performing at the Z7 in Pratteln, Switzerland on September 27, 2007 have been posted online at Metalpics.ch.
KATAKLYSM has recruited producer Jason Suecof (CHIMAIRA, TRIVIUM, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) to mix the album in early January. Entitled "Prevail", the CD will feature several guest appearances to be announced at a later date.
The album is scheduled for May 23, 2008 release via Nuclear Blast Records.
KATAKLYSM recently decided to "immortalize" the character that was featured on the cover of their most recent album, "In the Arms of Devastation", and have him re-appear as the main character — dubbed "The Heartbeast" — on their next offering, "Prevail".
Commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "We had so [much] killer feedback on the artwork but especially on the character that we decided to keep him as the band's fifth band member... kinda like IRON MAIDEN did with 'Eddie.' We have the perfect concept for the next album art... it will be bad-ass!"
