Produced by the band’s own guitarist J-F Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin, the record was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR a.o.). Mastering duties were handled by Paul Logus (PANTERA a.o.).
The artwork was created by Ocvlta Designs by Surtsey, who also crafted the artwork for KATAKLYSM’s previous record, Of Ghosts And Gods.
Meditations marks the return to old work ethics. All four band members wrote and composed together under the same roof for the first time in over a decade and returned to the old days of songwriting efforts which saw the band’s classics such as Shadows & Dust, Serenity In Fire and In The Arms Of Devastation come to life.
