Northern hyperblasters KATAKLYSM are featured in the third episode of the Nuclear Blast Video Cast, which can be viewed below. In this hour-long episode, Nuclear Blast USA speak with the band and discuss the new album, "Prevail", their plans for the record, and even take the time to ask the band questions that were submitted from KATAKLYSM fans around the world via MySpace, Facebook, and Bebo.
