KATAKLYSM picture
Kataklysm is a Canadian death metal band. They call their musical style "northern hyperblast" after an advertisement in M.E.A.T. magazine describing another band, Fear Factory, as "hyperblast". The term refers to the extremely fast blast beats that Kataklysm's drummer, Max Duhamel, fuses into the music.1992. At the beginning of their career they were mostly known for being one of the fastest, most chaotic metal bands. However, their music changed after Sylvain Houde left the band, and bassist/backing vocalist Maurizio Iacono took over Houde's vocal duties, and another full-time bassist was recruited.

In 1998, the band released "Victims of This Fallen World", an album which was noted as being a change in musical style from previous albums. The following album "The Prophecy (Stigmata of the Immaculate)", however, this saw the band return to its previous style, though less chaotic and with a touch of thrash metal.

KATAKLYSM Waiting for the End to Come

Album · 2013 · Death Metal
Cover art Buy this album from MMA partners
UMUR
"Waiting for the End to Come" is the 11th full-length studio album by Canadian death metal act Kataklysm. The album was released through Nuclear Blast Records in October 2013. Kataklysm worked with session drummer Olivier Beaudoin (who has later been added permanently to the lineup) as Max Duhamel is again out of the band. The rest of the lineup consists of Maurizio Iacono (Vocals), Jean-François Dagenais (Guitars) and Stéphane Barbe (Bass). It´s been 3 years since the release of "Heaven's Venom (2010)", but the members of Kataklysm have kept busy with (among other things) their side-project Ex Deo. Having been active since the early nineties, consistently releasing albums, Kataklysm are widely considered as one of the most prolific Canadian death metal acts on the scene.

Stylistically "Waiting for the End to Come" pretty much continues the techncially well played death metal style with melodic elements that the band have now played for many years (and on many releases). These guys know their craft to perfection. The songwriting is solid (and occasionally excellent), the musicianship are on a high level and the sound production is professional, clear and powerful. The tracks are all between 3 and 5 minutes long and never outstay their welcome. They are to the point and and don´t feature too many excursions into unknown territories. The high pitched sneering vocals on "under Lawless Skies" stick out a bit, but that´s about it. The occasional use of mid-paced groove based riffing (which remind me of artists like Chimaira or Fear Factory) provide the music with a contemporary sounding element. That´s just a stylistic element though and we´re still treated to blast beats and other fast-paced drumming styles, growling vocals, and a satisfactory level of brutality as usual, so don´t despair if the word "groove" made you shiver with fear.

"Waiting for the End to Come" is not an album that sticks out in Kataklysm´s by now huge discography, but it´s a damn solid death metal release, featuring stylistic variation and sophisticated songwriting, a professional and well sounding production and high level musicianship. A 4 star (80%) rating is deserved.

From their debut album back in 1995, right through until today, these Canucks have managed to create quite a name for themselves, although many feel that the last 10 years or so aren’t all that they might have been. They are famed for describing their music as ‘Northern Hyperblast’, and in their early year were seen as a fairly chaotic outfit who pursued sheer speed over everything else. These days they still have plenty of speed, but have morphed into something that is melodic yet brutal, powerful and essential, and somehow bringing a feel of Swedish metal into it as well. The more I have played this album the more I have enjoyed it as this hits again and again. The blastbeats are still there, and given how important the drumming is to this album I was surprised to see that ex-Neuraxis drummer Oli Beaudoin has been brought in just as a guest as he is key to the overall sound.

This is melodic death metal as it should be played, with a band firing on all cylinders and creating an incredible metallic monster that takes no prisoners. The fact that this album hit the charts in multiple countries on its’ release shows that I’m not the only metalhead that thinks so.

'Heaven's Venom' - Kataklysm (6/10)

Sometimes, a state of mild ambivalence says alot unto its own. Kataklysm are a band to have released some great death metal in the past, with most looking to their classic "Sorcery" as their crowning achievement. Since the nineties however, Kataklysm don't seem to have aged well. Although 2008's "Prevail" seems to have received some accolades from fans, I'm usually left wanting something more convincing out of death metal. "Heaven's Venom" is- in many ways- a demonstration of why I might feel this way about them. Despite the evident skill Kataklysm has earned over the years, the band's tenth album is stuck in an awkward place between heavy groove and melodic death metal. This failure to specialize leads "Heaven's Venom" to be neither terribly heavy or catchy, leaving a moderately enjoyable experience that only partially satisfies.

It may have been unfair to say at first, but I remember telling someone after my first listen that Kataklysm's latest felt like 'elevator death metal.' This was meant in no way to discredit the band's skill as an act, or even to say they're particularly tedious. Where Kataklysm comes up empty is that they lack the sort of ferocity that I look for in most varieties of death metal. Not including melodic death metal (where beauty arguably stands most tall), I expect the genre to grab me by the throat and toss me off a cliff, or whatever musical equivalent that may entail. "Heaven's Venom" may have the ingredients to do that, but it keeps restrained throughout.

Perhaps my overbearing criticism lies in the fact that I first approached it with the expectation of death metal. It's irritating modesty aside, Kataklysm have brought a decent set of songs to the table. "Determined (Vows of Vengeance)" is a great song rooted within the Swedish Gothenburg style- a memorable chorus and melodic lead demonstrates a greater stylistic focus. The album's highlight comes at the end; "Blind Saviour" is an incredible track that finally nails what the rest of the album had beaten around the bush. It may end a little abruptly, but the melodic hooks and tense riffing feels like "Heaven's Venom" finally works its blended formula to its advantage.

There is nothing wrong with blending stylistic doctrines together- that's often how distinctive sounds and band trademarks are formed. In the case of "Heaven's Venom" however, I'm left feeling that this was a potentially great melodeath record that couldn't figure out what it wanted until it was too late. In the end, it is the strong musicianship to carry the album through. The drumming of Max Dahamel fits the band's style perfectly, and Maurizio Iacono packs a good deal of emotion into his growling. Don't get me wrong; it is an enjoyable album, but I don't think "Heaven's Venom" will be recalled with the same respect as their early work when all is done.
