Kataklysm to film new music video next month
Official press release: Kataklysm will film a new music video in Belgrade, Serbia next month with acclaimed director Ivan Colic from iCode Productions (Ex Deo, Soilwork) whose previous work includes Kataklysm's "Push The Venom" video and Ex Deo's "Romulus" and "Final War (Battle Of Actium)" videos. Filming will commence in August for "a very ambitious & sick" video clip for the song "Elevate" from Kataklysm's forthcoming concept album Waiting For The End To Come. According to the band, the plan is to bring the viewers into a visual masterpiece of chaos, a chaos based around the ideals of death, the purpose of life, the human factor, and the semi-coma state that most people in this world exist in. Kataklysm frontman Maurizio Iacono states: "In a nutshell, we believe we wrote the most intense, intricate storyline for a video clip ever made in death metal and our genre. Big statement? Well, we've got big ideas and we need to put it to life with crazy visuals. We hired the man who has the balls and the artistic capacity to execute this task plus one of the best special FX teams in Europe to back him up. It's time to up the game. We're back and we're swinging hard." Kataklysm's Waiting For The End To Come will be released worldwide this October.
