Canadian extreme metallers KATAKLYSM will embark on a European headlining tour in January 2010. Support on the trek will come from BELPHEGOR, DARKEST HOUR, SUICIDAL ANGELS and RESISTANCE.
Commented KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono: "We've decided to bring a cool and diverse lineup. The direct support will come from our friends in the Satanic Austrian horde BELPHEGOR, as well as our old touring buddies in DARKEST HOUR who will bring the shredding melodic edge. From Greece, we have upcoming thrash metal upstarts SUICIDAL ANGELS and our friends from Belgium, RESISTANCE will open up the party.
"We are really stoked for this tour! All the bands will bring the aggression and we will play some songs we never played before. Of course we'll be playing your favorite KATAKLYSM pit songs as well!
