KATAKLYSM – discusses The Album Artwork!

Canadian melodic death metal heavyweights KATAKLYSM recently announced their 14th full-length studio album, »UNCONQUERED«, will be unleashed on September 25th via Nuclear Blast Records.

Today, the band releases the second album trailer discussing the artwork. Watch as Maurizio details the process of working with Blake Armstrong to bring the “Heart Beast” back to life: youtu.be/kEtFDQsqunM.

Maurizio comments, “The artwork represents the record; it’s a rebirth in a very positive way even after all these years. Hope you enjoy UNCONQUERED.”

KATAKLYSM recently released the first single entitled, ‘The Killshot’. Watch the video directed by Scott Hansen of Digital Thunderdome, here: https://youtu.be/Ku-rjJ5HXyU

The band comments, “‘The Killshot’ is very Machiavellian at its base meaning. The song deals with revenge and planning it out, I wrote the song in an open interpretation because everyone has their own story that they can attach to it. In general, the album deals with pain or setbacks, overcoming them and fighting back especially in today’s situation, the timing is on point. In February, we flew to Atlanta, Georgia and worked with director Scott Hanson. We saw some of his creations and wanted to try his style. The experience was awesome and we won’t forget it anytime soon. Everything went great but it was there, sitting at the airport that we first started seeing on all the screens that Covid-19 was about to shutdown the country.”

»Unconquered«was recorded and engineered by the band’s long-time producer and guitarist JF Dagenais at JFD Studio in Dallas, TX. KATAKLYSM enlisted legendary Colin Richardson, post retirement, to aid in the mixing of »Unconquered«’s weightier and modernized sound with additional help from Chris Clancy’s technicality and precision. »Unconquered« stands among the best produced albums in the band’s career.

The infamous heart beast, which also appeared on »In The Arms Of Devastation« (2006), »Prevail« (2008), and »Heaven’s Venom«(2010), makes its return with a cover image created by artist Blake Armstrong.
