5.0 out of 5 stars STILL KILLING THE ELITE!!!! 5 Feb 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Definitely an album which is continuing in the progression of albums Kataklysm have been putting out. This would compare in the strength of songs the whole way through to Serenity In Fire and Into The Arms Of Devastation. There is a sense an accessibility that pushes Kataklysm close to mainstream metal without losing their underground death metal identity. Melodic with a crushing heaviness that keeps you hooked throughout.

4.0 out of 5 stars Bang.Your.Head 12 Jun 2014
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This album delivers more of the same slow, heavy and dare I say melodic side of death metal that people have come to expect from them. There is also a healthy dose of more brutal tracks, specifically 'Fire' and 'Empire of Dirt' that have a taste of Bloodbath about them. Maurizio Iacono’s vocals are excellent as usual and the musician ship in the band is as fresh as ever. Stand out tracks are 'Like Animals', 'Elevate' and 'Kill the Elite'

I have been a fan since sorcery. I really do not like this new album the guitars do not sound like Kataklysm and it is way too melodic. Sounds like arch enemy :-(

5.0 out of 5 stars Like a fine wine 1 Nov 2013
By Michael - Published on
Format:Audio CD
Seems crazy that Kataklysm just celebrated their 20th anniversary. I'm sure a lot of us have seen their epic DVD Iron Will which featured an expansive documentary on the band's history and the live show at Summer Breeze which featured songs from every album they've recorded. More than a year later, their eleventh studio album Waiting For The End To Come is now out. Like a fine wine, the band only seems to get better with age, and each new album that they produce turns out better than the last. Who knew that Kataklysm could churn out epic album after epic album? Shadows & Dust, Serenity In Fire, In The Arms Of Devastation, Prevail, and last but not least, Heaven's Venom. Watching their documentary, I gained a better understanding about their song writing. Before Prevail, their music was bordering on melodic death metal, which pertained to a more European sound, like Gothenburg. When they did Prevail, it was more Americanized, but still identified as Kataklysm. Heaven's Venom pretty much married both sides together very well. Waiting For The End To Come is like a continuation of those ideas while giving us a glimpse into their apocalyptic vision ironically almost a year after the world was supposedly going to end. For those that are disappointed that Max Duhamel is currently out of the band while battling his alcohol dependency, former Neuraxis and Belphegor drummer Oli Beaudoin is filling in, showing that he can more than fill the vacant slot. If you're not convinced by now, give the song Elevate a listen. Note that the deluxe edition features only 1 bonus track, The American Way, originally by legendary thrash band Sacred Reich. The deluxe edition is not entirely recommended, but it might be a good deal depending on you.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kiss boring goodbye 1 Nov 2013
By Robert Arrate - Published on
Verified Purchase
Hyper blast rules! The long-awaited release features slightly more melodic sawing guitars, solid vocals that don't overpower the excellent riffs, and some additional syncopation really makes me want to tap my toe and bang my head simultaneously! Guaranteed to get you some odd looks on the morning commute. I recommend immediately forwarding to "Empire of Dirt" for some exquisite drums and sawing guitar riffs! For all your friends who don't get the death metal genre, play them some samples of this album; they'll never listen to Disturbed again! Parts of this album harken back to "The Prophecy" and will bring a smile to your face!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Brutality Fest 7 Dec 2013
By Paul - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Kataklysm itches that particular spot that can be hard to reach every time it seems. This album is definitely different than the last in its overall feel as a whole. Not to worry though. Though the tones are a bit different, it comes on like an inferno. Kataklysm never seems to disappoint! All I can say is... ENJOY!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good solid album for Kataklysm fans but not Prevail or Serenity in Fire 6 Nov 2013
By Stephen Bynum - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Let me preface this by saying I am a tough critic of bands I like and expect them to continue to grow and exceed past albums with new albums. I listened to the whole album several times today at work and in the gym while doing cardio. Good album, some stand outs and some disappointments.

Fire was so/so- it started out too power-metalish and after :40 it was better but not great, just ok. IIWGIBIA was better, this might have been the song to open with instead of fire. Like Animals is where it really picked up. Started strong, good riffs and stayed heavy. Kill the Elite was pretty good; definitely the stand out of the first few songs. Under Lawless Skies was my great disappointment; this song started out so incredibly strong but the verses almost blew it.The intro, hook, and chorus were good but the verses were what kept it from being my top pick.

Dead & Buried- solid metal, good pounding cardio with level out and stabilize without a lot of time changes that cause you to almost fall off the treadmill ala Meshuggah. TDDoS was pretty good. It was kinda the catch your breath before hitting the next fast stretch. Good and solid. Real Blood, Real Scars was good but nothing that stands out. The Promise was solid but the vocals felt stretched or too slow. The song was really good though one of my top 3-4 songs minus the vocals in select parts. Empire of Dirt was pretty good; another level out song and catch your breath. Really even with a couple of good hook/rhythms. Elevate was pretty solid also. I like the music the had a couple of the same exaggerated stretched out vocals that The Promise had.

Too early to pick favorites. Good album overall despite how negative my song by song seems. Would rate this one above some of their earlier stuff, maybe on par with Shadows and Dust or maybe even with Heaven's Venom don't think it will displace Serenity in Fire or Prevail as my favorites. If more of the songs had been like Under Lawless Skies, Like Animals, or Empire of Dirt might have rated it higher. This is of course subject to change as I listen to it more. Only one day deep might be a little too soon to properly evaluate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kataklysm keeping their style 8 Nov 2013
By Zane - Published on
Verified Purchase
When I first listened to this album I quite quickly got the impression that it was Kataklysm and nothing else, and I like that, I like it when bands keep their style. In this album they used some classic Kataklysm guitar riffs and some newer riffs which really gave me hope for this album when i first listened to it and that hope wasn't disappointing. the vocals in Kataklysm I have always enjoyed and still remain same which is nice, and I really like the drum work in this album it reminds me a lot of their album Serenity In Fire.
