About Me

Tagline
The OFFICIAL Kataklysm Bebo Page!
Me, Myself, and I
The Canadian death metal scene has been thriving for a number of years, and Kataklysm is that scene's oldest and most recognizeable name, having formed in 1991 and releasing a slew of successful albums during the course of their career. Their early work shows them at their most frenetic and hyperactive, giving rise to the self-coined term "Northern Hyperblast" describing their unique style. The consensus is that their albums have consistently been of superior quality with the possible exception of Victims Of This Fallen World, which featured a more hardcore vocal style from then-new vocalist Maurizio Iacono and somewhat of a shift in direction. They have since rebounded and are still considered a premier death metal band.

  • EX DEO announce Tour Bassist for PaganFest Europe

    EX DEO - ANNOUNCE TOURING BASSIST FOR PAGANFEST EUROPE

    EX DEO’s Maurizio Iacono has issued the following update regarding the upcoming PaganFest Europe tour:

    “EX DEO have enlisted bassist Dano Apekian from Montreal, Quebec’s melodic death metal outfit ASHES OF EDEN. We knew that Francois Mongrain (MARTYR) couldn’t make it on some tours with EX DEO even before we asked him to perform on the album...we needed a person that could be there when called upon for touring. Dano has good stage experience and will serve Rome's conquest proudly!

    I would also like to also dismiss any claim that EX DEO is part of any Christian based band or beliefs. These are false allegations of people who have obviously not educated themselves with history. Rome was part of Polytheism beliefs, in other words, it was pagan, the belief in multiple gods, not Christianity until Emperor Constantine declared the Christian religion legal in Rome. That was the biggest mistake they ever made, it was the start of the fall of Rome and its ideals of free thinking, and for those who dismiss these things as something of the 'past,' well let me tell you that you live in the results of those past events and your way of thinking is based on it, and all the freedoms you take for granted. HAIL ROME!"

    EX DEO unleashed their monster of a debut album, Romulus, to the world on June 19, 2009 (Europe) and will release it on June 30, 2009 (North America) via Nuclear Blast Records.

    Nergal (BEHEMOTH), Karl Sanders (NILE) and Obsidian C (KEEP OF KALESSIN) will make special guest appearances on, Romulus.

    Nergal will appear in the song "Storm The Gates Of Alesia," singing a very famous Caesar quote; Sanders laid down a ripping solo in the song "The Final War (The Battle Of Actium)" which deals with Antony and Cleopatra's defiance of Octivian in Egypt, and Obsidian C lends a majestic and melodic solo to the track "Cruor Nostri Abbas."

  • KATAKLYSM - GUITARIST DETAINED BY FEDERAL AGENTS!

    Canada's KATAKLYSM recently returned home after two separate very successful shows in St-Petersburg and Moscow, Russia. Unfortunately, upon arriving in America guitarist Jean-Francois Dagenais was pulled from line at customs and detained by federal agents.

    Commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono: "Well, this was one odd week especially yesterday. First, we finally flew out to Russia for the first time and we didn't know what to expect. There's always been this grim picture painted of that country to us. Having said that, we thought we'd arrive under dark skies, with rain and depressed looking people everywhere. Instead, we arrived to sunshine and enthusiastic people that looked happy and energetic and we were through customs in matter of minutes. So I said to myself, 'This will be interesting.' We were soon greeted there with open arms by the promoters and we were off. We played St-Petersburg first then Moscow. The shows were fantastic and everything was top notch. Fans knew all the lyrics and went ballistic! We even had Russian special forces soldiers stage diving! It was just a crazy, all-around good time and the shows were packed! I could have stayed there another week but we said our goodbyes and headed back home.

    "We arrived in Washington D.C. with a layover to Chicago where I live now (the rest of the band still live in Montreal). So we grabbed our bags and went through immigration with no problems, as expected. As we're waiting in line for the customs exit, some uniformed guy grabs J-F and takes him away with his bags. We assumed it was just a random check.

    "So we make our way to our next gate for our plane and realize it's been over an hour and there's still no sign of J-F. This was 4 p.m. I go back to the customs area and the place is deserted. At this point, we started worrying and asking questions but we received no answers. We decide to board our plane at 4:30 p.m. with still no sign of him. Someone from United Airlines tells me finally he won't be joining our flight but still no reason is given. At this point I'm like, 'What the fuck is happening?'

    "So we jet out of D.C. and get back to Chicago where the guys were staying over at my house until today to go back to Canada. After fruitless calls to the airport we just decided to wait for some sort of sign of life. That sign came at 11 p.m. in Chicago at O'Hare airport.

    "Apparently, Washington customs official grabbed J-F and threw him in a room with only one chair and a table. He was there for five hours until they finally talked to him and they told him that he was wanted internationally and by the U.S. government. I could have imagined his face when they told him this, it must have been priceless. People that know J-F know he couldn't hurt an ant. He's one of the most down-to-earth and sweetest people you could meet. After a few hours of denying everything, Interpol sent in a picture and that picture didn't match his. What happened was that there was another Jean-Francois Dagenais that is listed in the FBI's most wanted list and they thought they'd caught him. I mean, what the fuck!? He was given a tap on the shoulder and apology and rebooked to Chicago! Even though we were really worried, all of us laughed it off at the end. It's just ironic that we expected this to maybe happen in Russia, but in the end it ended up happening right here at home!"
