5.0 out of 5 stars Like a fine wine November 1, 2013
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
Seems crazy that Kataklysm just celebrated their 20th anniversary. I'm sure a lot of us have seen their epic DVD Iron Will which featured an expansive documentary on the band's history and the live show at Summer Breeze which featured songs from every album they've recorded. More than a year later, their eleventh studio album Waiting For The End To Come is now out. Like a fine wine, the band only seems to get better with age, and each new album that they produce turns out better than the last. Who knew that Kataklysm could churn out epic album after epic album? Shadows & Dust, Serenity In Fire, In The Arms Of Devastation, Prevail, and last but not least, Heaven's Venom. Watching their documentary, I gained a better understanding about their song writing. Before Prevail, their music was bordering on melodic death metal, which pertained to a more European sound, like Gothenburg. When they did Prevail, it was more Americanized, but still identified as Kataklysm. Heaven's Venom pretty much married both sides together very well. Waiting For The End To Come is like a continuation of those ideas while giving us a glimpse into their apocalyptic vision ironically almost a year after the world was supposedly going to end. For those that are disappointed that Max Duhamel is currently out of the band while battling his alcohol dependency, former Neuraxis and Belphegor drummer Oli Beaudoin is filling in, showing that he can more than fill the vacant slot. If you're not convinced by now, give the song Elevate a listen. Note that the deluxe edition features only 1 bonus track, The American Way, originally by legendary thrash band Sacred Reich. The deluxe edition is not entirely recommended, but it might be a good deal depending on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss boring goodbye November 1, 2013
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
Hyper blast rules! The long-awaited release features slightly more melodic sawing guitars, solid vocals that don't overpower the excellent riffs, and some additional syncopation really makes me want to tap my toe and bang my head simultaneously! Guaranteed to get you some odd looks on the morning commute. I recommend immediately forwarding to "Empire of Dirt" for some exquisite drums and sawing guitar riffs! For all your friends who don't get the death metal genre, play them some samples of this album; they'll never listen to Disturbed again! Parts of this album harken back to "The Prophecy" and will bring a smile to your face!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Brutality Fest December 7, 2013
By Paul
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kataklysm itches that particular spot that can be hard to reach every time it seems. This album is definitely different than the last in its overall feel as a whole. Not to worry though. Though the tones are a bit different, it comes on like an inferno. Kataklysm never seems to disappoint! All I can say is... ENJOY!

Let me preface this by saying I am a tough critic of bands I like and expect them to continue to grow and exceed past albums with new albums. I listened to the whole album several times today at work and in the gym while doing cardio. Good album, some stand outs and some disappointments.

Fire was so/so- it started out too power-metalish and after :40 it was better but not great, just ok. IIWGIBIA was better, this might have been the song to open with instead of fire. Like Animals is where it really picked up. Started strong, good riffs and stayed heavy. Kill the Elite was pretty good; definitely the stand out of the first few songs. Under Lawless Skies was my great disappointment; this song started out so incredibly strong but the verses almost blew it.The intro, hook, and chorus were good but the verses were what kept it from being my top pick.

Dead & Buried- solid metal, good pounding cardio with level out and stabilize without a lot of time changes that cause you to almost fall off the treadmill ala Meshuggah. TDDoS was pretty good. It was kinda the catch your breath before hitting the next fast stretch. Good and solid. Real Blood, Real Scars was good but nothing that stands out. The Promise was solid but the vocals felt stretched or too slow. The song was really good though one of my top 3-4 songs minus the vocals in select parts. Empire of Dirt was pretty good; another level out song and catch your breath. Really even with a couple of good hook/rhythms. Elevate was pretty solid also. I like the music the had a couple of the same exaggerated stretched out vocals that The Promise had.

Too early to pick favorites. Good album overall despite how negative my song by song seems.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kataklysm keeping their style November 8, 2013
By Zane
Format:MP3 Music|Verified Purchase
When I first listened to this album I quite quickly got the impression that it was Kataklysm and nothing else, and I like that, I like it when bands keep their style. In this album they used some classic Kataklysm guitar riffs and some newer riffs which really gave me hope for this album when i first listened to it and that hope wasn't disappointing. the vocals in Kataklysm I have always enjoyed and still remain same which is nice, and I really like the drum work in this album it reminds me a lot of their album Serenity In Fire.

5.0 out of 5 stars Iron Will: 22 Years Determined August 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD
These Canadians started to rock in 1992 with the mission statement "deliver the most punishing music ever created by combining melody and power into one devastating force." Whether they are the most punishing band ever could be debated for hours over multiple bottles of Jim Beam. But one thing is for sure: Kataklysm are an extremely heavy death metal band and have managed to remain interesting throughout their career. Their other amazing feat is that they have managed to maintain the same lineup throughout the years -- Maurizio Iacono (vocals), Jean-Francois Dagenais (guitars), Stephane Barbe (bass), and Max Duhamel (drums). Supporting bands like Deicide, Cathedral, Brutal Truth, Vader, Cannibal Corpse, and Dark Funeral has helped them gain popularity worldwide. Since releasing their debut, Sorcery, in 1995, Kataklysm have been an incredibly productive band. Releasing an album almost every other year, the band followed up with Temple of Knowledge in 1996 and Victims of the Fallen World in 1998. The band continued to release albums like clockwork into the new millennium with The Prophecy: Stigmata of the Immaculate in 2000, Epic: The Poetry of War in 2001, Shadows & Dust in 2002, Serenity in Fire in 2004, In the Arms of Devastation in 2006, and Prevail in 2008. In 2010, the band put out its tenth studio album, Heaven's Venom. ( Credit to mediasack)
