Kataklysm’s Tour Will “Kill The Elite” in 2014

The Metal Legions were supposed to get a solid dose of Kataklysm during the planned tour with Sepultura last year but with that event being cancelled altogether it has been quite a bit of time since they made their way over to these parts. Luckily for us all they shall be returning and bringing along Aborted as their direct support. More information in the press release follows the poster below. I’ll chime in afterward for good measure

The Press Release:
Montreal based death metal powerhouse KATAKLYSM, will tour North America in support of their newly released album Waiting for the End to Come next April with Belgian gore-grinders ABORTED! “It’s been a little while since we hit the road in North America with KATAKLYSM,” commented vocalist Maurizio Iacono. “We were bummed out when our tour with SEPULTURA was cancelled, so we decided to do what our fans have been asking us for and do a headlining run. This is guaranteed to be a good time with our friends in ABORTED and will also be a two part tour; we plan on returning in the Fall again to all the cities we are missing on this first part. Judging by our recent shows, the new material has been going over amazingly well live! We look forward to seeing you guys in April!!!”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve caught Kataklysm on several occasions and really think that they deliver on the stage and give their fans their absolute all with a performance. As a Brooklyn resident I think its awesome that they’ve opted to start the whole run off in our neck of the woods with an appearance at the famous St. Vitus Bar. Will you be attending this tour on any of its dates?

Fans can keep up with the bands activities via their social networking mediums to learn the latest tour happenings and perhaps even get themselves some free tickets for the show. I took this shot of Kataklysm’s Maurizio Iacona back when the band was playing at Irving Plaza when it was briefly being called The Fillmore at Irving Plaza. It was a great show and the band continually delivers a solid set so you do want to be a part of this tour.
