Montréal based melodic death metallers KATAKLYSM released their brand new studio album, Meditations, through Nuclear Blast Records. A gift to the fans is the bonus DVD of the new album. This live DVD was filmed in Munich, Germany on the A Moment In Time tour on October 21, 2017.
The DVD features the performance of the bands 2 classic albums, Shadows & Dust and Serenity in Fire in their entirety. The concert was captured by several cameras and recorded live in front of a full house of fans from around the world. Mixed by the band’s guitarist J-F Dagenais, the feature also includes interviews with the band members about that very special tour and the new album Meditations.
Today, JF Dagenais discusses how Meditations used a new mixer.

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.
