KATAKLYSM Singer To Pen Autobiography

KATAKLYSM singer Maurizio Iacono has announced plans to write the band's autobiography to coincide with their 15th anniversary.

"I've been thinking about it for a long time during the last few years, especially when I'm on tour and all the bandmembers of other bands are like, 'Dude, we had no idea about the shit you guys been through...'," Iacono explained. "We would talk about fun things and sad things all night long over beers and hard liquor, they would always tell me, 'Dude, you should write a book,' and I always said maybe one day. So what better time then now? Next year will mark the band's 15th anniversary and I'm damn proud of what we've achieved. For some it ain't much but for me it's everything, so I decided to set the record straight on EVERYTHING. We've kept many things to ourselves over the years, and I think it will be cool read. I really got convinced last week when mags from Europe were in town listening to my new album and then we had a BBQ at my house. The day before they left and again, the same thing: 'Bro, put that shit in a book! Do it!'... So OK, fuck it, let's do it. I talked to Nuclear Blast about it, they said let's go for it. So next year sometime... 'Kataklysm / The Northern Hyperblast: Uncut' book will be released. I've been writing for the past few days and this is really exciting... So stay tuned for more details."

In other news, KATAKLYSM have secured the co-headliner position for the No Mercy Festivals tour in Europe held next March. Some shows in the Quebec area are also planned for December.

KATAKLYSM's new album, "In the Arms of Devastation", is currently being mixed in Denmark by acclaimed producer Tue Madsen. A February 20, 2006 release via Nuclear Blast Records is expected.
