Kataklysm detail new album, unleash video single
Kataklysm, the Canadian death metal band, is set to release their fifteenth studio album, Goliath, on August 11th through Nuclear Blast. The album was produced and engineered by the band's own J-F Dagenais, and Chris Clancy and Colin Richardson were responsible mixing and mastering.
The first single, "Bringer Of Vengeance," which can be seen below, is a tribute to the assassination of King Richard I "The Lionheart" and the idea that justice will always be served. A music video for the track has been released and can be viewed below.
Vocalist Maurizio Iacono shared:
"Our new album Goliath comes at a time in our society where division and hate are growing and spreading on a worldwide basis, where ideologies on how the future should be for humanity is colliding, This is also a time of unprecedented power structures fighting for the control of our lives, the story of David vs Goliath has never been more important than these modern times, Metal has always been a voice of rebellion against oppression and for the protection of our freedoms, the album also touches on inner conflict and doing what needs to be done to confront your inner demons.
The 'Bringer of Vengeance' single's main idea is about a carefully and patiently plotted revenge. The song is inspired by the events surrounding the assassination of King Richard I 'The Lionheart' and the idea that it might take time but, one day justice will always be served."
