Kataklysm Recruit Jay Ruston For New Album “Meditations”

Kataklysm have revealed that they have recruited Jay Ruston to mix and master their new album, “Meditations“. That effort will be released in April.

JF Dagenais commented:

“This album has so much to offer that we decided to search for someone outside the box for it. Someone who comes with a fresh outlook and hasn’t work with extreme or death metal bands. We wanted someone with a more organic feel but at the same time can pound a mix into your chest with the power and definition it deserves.

When Jay accepted to work with us, we knew he would bring just that! So far, the first mixes coming in are incredible. We will be turning some heads on this album folks. That’s all I can say for now, cant wait!”

Kataklysm Re-Sign With Nuclear Blast Records, Plan To Release New Album “Meditations”

Kataklysm have re-signed with Nuclear Blast Records. With this news, the band also released a trailer for their new album “Meditations,” which is expected to be released through the label in April.

Maurizio Iacono said the following:

“It’s hard to believe so many years have passed. It all feels like yesterday we released our first album, Sorcery. Today, we stand here a humbled band with lots to be thankful for, one of those deserving of our gratitude is our label Nuclear Blast and the people who work there. They have always stood behind Kataklysm from the day they discovered us as teenagers, fast forward 25 years to their current staff who are just discovering us.

We now re-sign with our home label for the 5th time and stand on top of our game together. There is no better way to celebrate this moment but by releasing a new album. We have secretly been preparing and working throughout the entire year -, similar to the way we wrote our classics ‘In The Arms Of Devastation‘, ‘Shadows & Dust‘ and ‘Serenity In Fire‘ – using the best technology available: a rehearsal room, garages and our basements. Just like we did when we first started, four guys with a passion for metal, instruments and no outside world to influence us – only now with way more experience.

We believe we created one of our strongest and most honest album to date. You will be the judge in 2018 like it should be. Our words don’t matter but know this, we are coming out guns blazing in 2018!”
