Pinnacle of Bedlam was produced by the band and tracked at Full Force Studios in New York by longtime collaborator Joe Cincotta. The mixing and mastering was handled this time around by world renowned producer/engineer Zeuss (HATEBREED, ARSIS, SUICIDE SILENCE). Pinnacle of Bedlam features 10 genre-defining-bone-crushing tracks and also marks the return of drummer Dave Culross, who played with the band previously on their Despise The Sun EP. Artwork was handled by artist Raymond Swanland (DEEDS OF FLESH, PSYCROPTIC).
KATAKLYSM released their 11th studio album last October entitled, Waiting for the End to Come. The album was recorded by guitarist Jean Francois Dagenais and mixed by Zeuss (SUFFOCATION, HATEBREED, ARSIS). The artwork by Eliran Kantor (TESTAMENT, HATEBREED) is featured on the deluxe digipak and LP versions of their new album, while the cover art by Peter Sallai (SABATON) is featured on the standard jewel case and limited edition cassette tape versions.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’m not going to add much to this since its unnecessary for me to do so. I’ve seen the top three bands on the package and if you have not seen Suffocation, Kataklysm or Jungle Rot yet, you need to get on point because this is some of the most crushing Death Metal that you can experience in a concert setting. I’m not up on Pyrexia or Internal Bleeding but if I get to the show that is hitting my area you can count on my adding them to the concert report. Okay, time to close this up with the question of what do you readers think about this tour? There are a lot of stops on this one so I wonder if its something you concert warriors will entertain hitting. Chime in down in the comments because I love to hear from you.
