Montreal death metal staple Kataklysm just announced the title for their upcoming album. Three years in the making, Waiting for the End to Come is tentatively scheduled for a late 2013/early 2014 release. As we previously reported, Chris “Zeuss” Harris (who has worked with people like Suffocation and Arsis) will be mixing the record. The band is scheduled to enter JFD studio in June/July.
Vocalist Maurizio Iacono had this to say:
“Well it’s been a seriously busy ride since our last album Heaven’s Venom was released over 3 years ago. From a successful world headlining run, to Ozzfest, into a recap of our 20 years as band with the Iron Will DVD. We’ve been writing in a very humble fashion behind the scenes for the last six months. It’s time to take Kataklysm to higher levels and dig deep into our capacities as musicians and songwriters. We know exactly what we have to do, that’s why we have taken our time and why we’ll be taking most of the Summer to complete the new album. The record will deal lyrically with mortality and the purpose of one’s being on this earth. The moment we are born we start to die. It’s a sort of deal we make with life, and with that I title the new Kataklysm album Waiting for the End to Come.”
