A February 20, 2007 North American release via Nuclear Blast is expected (January 26 in Europe).
As previously reported, Nuclear Blast Records will re-release KATAKLYSM's latest album, "In the Arms of Devastation", in North America to coincide with the band's upcoming U.S. tour. The album will be reissued on February 6 with new packaging and will contain the "The End of Serenity: Live in Strassbourg" DVD, which was filmed during the "Serenity in Fire" campaign in France. The CD will also contain all of the band's video clips and will be limited to 5,000 copies.
