Montreal-based death metallers KATAKLYSM will release new album, “Of Ghosts And Gods”, on July 31 via Nuclear Blast. The cover artwork for the follow-up to “Waiting For The End To Come” was created by up-and-coming dark and macabre artist Art By Surtsey and can be seen below.

The song “Thy Serpents Tongue”, which appears on “Of Ghosts And Gods”, can be streamed below.

Says KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono: “The time has come once again, KATAKLYSM on our twelfth studio album and still going strong. We are very proud of this record. It holds the best elements of the band’s career and a completely new vibe and fresh outlook on death metal in 2015. ‘Thy Serpents Tongue’ is the first taste, a sinister dark and groove but melodic track that when it bites you, the poison will take you in and make you travel to the other side.”

According to KATAKYSM, the “cover art echoes a sinister artwork depicting the reality of humanity’s beautifully disturbing existence and its impending death through the mortal and the everlasting. The background shows an ancient Incantation written in Aramaic.”

“Of Ghosts And Gods” track listing:

01. Breaching The Asylum
02. The Black Sheep
03. Thy Serpents Tongue
04. Soul Destroyer
05. Vindication
06. Marching Through Graveyards
07. Shattered
08. Hate Spirit
09. Carrying Crosses
10. The World Is A Dying Insect

Guitarist Jean-François “JF” Dagenais tracked drums, guitars and bass for the album, while vocals were recorded by producer Mark Lewis (WHITECHAPEL, DEVILDRIVER, CANNIBAL CORPSE). The effort was mixed and mastered in the U.K. by British producer Andy Sneap (MEGADETH, TESTAMENT, EXODUS, AMON AMARTH).

Says the band: “KATAKLYSM has been full of inspiration and are in full determination mode lately; a rejuvenated band that is out to conquer the world with no sign of stopping!

“This promises to be the album that will once and for all establish KATAKLYSM as one of the top pioneers of the genre!

“The latest material will be touching on some new ground while maintaining the aggressive edge the band has always been known for.

“The chemistry with new drummer Oli Beaudoin is incredible, and the four horsemen promise some crushing new material coming your way. Death metal hymns are arriving!”

KATAKLYSM had one of the busiest year in its entire career supporting “Waiting For The End To Come”. The band launched a successful run in Australia and Japan and made its way to many other countries, including some first-time stops in places like Brazil and South Africa, among others.

“Waiting For The End To Come” was released in October 2013 via Nuclear Blast.
