"Blood in Heaven", the new video from Quebec's very own destructive metal force KATAKLYSM, can be viewed below. The clip was helmed by renowned Canadian director Max Hebert.
KATAKLYSM singer Maurizio Iacono previously stated about the decision to shoot a video for "Blood in Heaven": "A while back ago we made the decision to have the title track [of our new album] 'Prevail' be the next video clip. After carefully thinking it over, we have now decided to go with our original plan and shoot the video for 'Blood in Heaven'. Lots of fans have been asking us to do a clip for that song so we decided, 'why not, it's all about the fans anyways!' Besides, 'Prevail' is already a massive live song and doesn't need any more of a push. There are other gems on this album that we want to introduce so here it goes!
"We wanted to do something cool with this one so [we hired] someone [to film] us on tour everywhere we go. . . The live shots will be from the band's hometown and final gig of the [recently completed North American] tour in Montreal, Canada. There will be a huge crew in place to film with five different cameras in all angles."
KATAKLYSM recently completed a successful headlining run as part of the second annual "Death By Decibels" tour with DYING FETUS, ELUVEITIE and KEEP OF KALESSIN.
"Prevail", the most recent CD by KATAKLYSM, was honored in the "Album Of The Year" in the "Metal/Hardcore" category at the Quebec Indie Music Awards (GAMIQ), an awards show that recognizes achievements by Quebec independent artists. The event was held on on Sunday, September 21, 2008 at the Corona Theatre in Montreal and was produced by the Quebec Independent Music Association which is also behind the Montreal International Music Initiative (MIMI).
