But, we are finally here and with a hell of a package this time. We are very excited to share the stage with the legendary EXHORDER; Slaughter of the Vatican is one of my all time favorite records. And to round off the package having our brothers in KRISIUN with us and the thrash outfit HATCHET is gonna make this a memorable tour. We will play a varied set of the bands discography and of course. our latest album Meditations, all wrapped up in a devastating live show as only KATAKLYSM can deliver. It's gonna be sick. See you all very soon." KATAKLYSM is touring in support of their highly acclaimed thirteenth studio album Meditations. Produced by the band's own guitarist J-F Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin, the record was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR a.o.). Mastering duties were handled by Paul Logus (PANTERA a.o.).
