Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM won the "Best Metal Group" prize at the Canadian Indie Music Awards. The band will not be able to attend the event in Toronto at the Phoenix Theater tomorrow to receive the award, as they are currently on tour with DANZIG. Here is a a tour update from singer Maurizio Iacono:

"We are presently half way done with the tour and its been absolutly great. We didnt know what to expect coming into this tour as an extreme act, but so far I can truly say it's the most important tour we've done in the States and it's been packed every night, response has been amazing with violent pits every night, we've been treated with nothing but respect by DANZIG and their crew, we're having loads of fun and exposing death metal to a new audience and making lots of new fans. Cool to be part of the Danzig/Doyle (MISFITS 30-minute reunion) shows in Boston/NYC and Philly. It was historic and the crown went apeshit. We hope things keep going like they are and we will see you all soon."
