Release Music Video For "Outsider" + Meditations Out Now!

"Don't let the album title fool you. While it may conjure images of mellow, quiet introspection and "thinking about your happy place," Meditations is hard-hitting and forceful." Chad Bowar, METAL INJECTION

"Through changing times, Kataklysm carry the torch, once again finding themselves with a well-thought-out and well-organized album of the perfect length that will capture the mind of their fans." Lisa Burke, CRYPTIC ROCK

"Truly impressive how they produce this spontaneous rejuvenated energy! A dense attack of sharp guitars and catchiness vs. heavyness.” Vera Matthijssens, ROCK TRIBUNE (B) “With Meditations, KATAKLYSM went back to their past musical deep brutality, well-balanced with emotional catchy melodies. A step forward for the band who will most probably gain back some old and new fans on this process.” Judith Halberstam, METALLIAN (F) "Mighty death-led noblesse, towering with Melo-Death finesse and powerful hardcore explosions. Variation, complexity and diversification to the power of 10!" Markus Eck, SONIC SEDUCER (D)

The wait is over! Today, Montréal based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM unleash their new studio album Meditations, through Nuclear Blast Records. In celebration of the album, the band released the music video for "Outsider" which can be seen here:
