The Bloodstock team are pleased to announce that Canadian death metal legends KATAKLYSM have been added to the bill for Bloodstock Open Air Metal Festival 2008.
Kataklysm formed in Montreal in late 1991, releasing a demo entitled â€˜Death Gate Cycle Of Reincarnationâ€™ the following year which secured them a deal with Germany's Nuclear Blast records. The demo was issued on CD in â€™93 as â€˜The Mystical Gate Of Reincarnationâ€™ with the band finally releasing their debut full-length â€˜Sorceryâ€™ in 1995. Even amid the burgeoning early â€˜90s death metal scene, Kataklysm managed to secure a reputation as one of the fastest, most brutal bands around. â€˜Temple Of Knowledgeâ€™ followed in â€™96 and heralded more rave reviews and successful touring. 1998â€™s â€˜Victims Of This Fallen Worldâ€™ marked an experimental change of pace but the band were soon back to brutal basics in 2000 with â€˜The Prophecy (Stigmata Of The Immaculate)â€™. A further four albums emerged between 2001 and 2006, including their most recent effort, the crushing â€˜In the Arms of Devastationâ€™ which proved that even after fifteen years the band have lost none of their edge or extremity and continue to drive death metal forward. A new album entitled â€˜Prevailâ€™ is due in May and Kataklysmâ€™s devastating Bloodstock set will be UK fansâ€™ first chance to check it out.
