Montreal based extremist KATAKLYSM will wrap up the touring cycle for their latest record Of Ghosts And Gods, with a direct support slot to IN FLAMES on their upcoming U.S. tour.
Fans of death metal are in for a midweek treat as Kataklysm headline a night of heaviness in the recently renovated Voodoo Lounge in Dublin
With the length of time a band like Kataklysm has been around, and the wealth of amazing music they have released, one would imagine that they would be one of the foremost Death metals on the tips of the tongues of fans of the genre. And I would say that those who have been following the style forever and explored the deepest, darkest realms of Death metal, know this band quite well.
In conclusion some pre-judged prejudices regarding death metal were borne out, however there were also other aspects that I did admit to finding surprisingly pleasing. While there wasn’t a full blown conversion to the dark and death metal side, I have certainly become a little more open-minded with regard to its appeal and merits.
