Canadian melodic death metal heavyweights KATAKLYSM
The Band released the first album trailer. Watch as Maurizio discusses the title of the new album,UNCONQUERED.
Maurizio comments, “UNCONQUERE
KATAKLYSM recently released the first single entitled, ‘The Killshot’ directed by Scott Hansen of Digital Thunderdome.
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 shut down 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 modernised sound with additional help from Chris Clancy’s technicality and precision.UNCONQUERED stands
