KATAKLYSM Complete Work On 'In The Arms Of Devastation'

Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM have completed work on their eighth studio album, "In the Arms of Devastation", for a February 20, 2006 release through Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented guitarist/producer Jean-Fran├žois Dagenais: "After having spent two months behind the production helm for the new KATAKLYSM album, we have now achieved what we wanted from A to Z, I've worked extremely hard on this record to get it to sound like no other KATAKLYSM album and I must say when you have the time to work on something, it DOES benefit greatly! I'm really happy with the results we have. Everyone in the band gave 150 percent and I can't wait for everyone to hear this album. I have to agree with one of Maurizio's [vocals] previous statement when he said this album on a technical side and with it's blazing tempos has been the most difficult album for me to record my guitar tracks... [it] felt like at some point my wrist and fingers were gona give in! But it was well worth the pain!"

01. Temptation's Nest
02. Let Them Burn
03. Crippled & Broken
04. Open Scars
05. To Reign Again
06. In Words of Desperation
