KATAKLYSM To Film New Video In Las Vegas

Canadian death metallers KATAKLYSM have hired L.A. director Joe Lynch (COAL CHAMBER, 311, GODHEAD, PETE YORN) to film the video for the band's new single, "As I Slither". The shoot will take place on August 31 at the Huntridge Theater in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the band will perform as part of the Las Vegas Metalfest.

Lynch had the following to say about his collaboration with KATAKLYSM:

"Let's face it: KATAKLYSM are brutal and talented musicians, and it's an honor to work with a band who still pursues the fundamentals of what makes powerful metal, and I mean like 'balls out, 150% proof, freak your momma' type metal here, folks. All I wanna do with this video is capture their intense performance in the middle of Hades… er, Vegas, which should prove to be an interesting backdrop. I'll tell you this, I'm excited as hell to shoot the shit outta these guys...and just a little scared, which to me is a good thing for metal, and hopefully that will translate onto this clip."

KATAKLYSM will enter Studio Victor in Montreal in November to begin recording their new album, "Serenity In Fire", for an early 2004 release through Nuclear Blast Records. The album will be produced by KATAKLYSM guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais (MISERY INDEX, MALEVOLENT CREATION) and will be mixed at Wildsound studio in St-Zenon, Quebec.
