Born in 1992 from the cold winds of Montréal, Québec, Canada comes one of the country’s top extreme musical exports to date: KATAKLYSM. With a career spanning 25 years, KATAKLYSM is a leading force in the most brutal & powerful genre in heavy metal and has conquered territories such as Europe, North & South America, Australia, and Asia while recently becoming the first Canadian metal band to ever play South Africa.

They’ve spent the last 25 years cementing their legacy in the extreme metal genre. 2016 marked a whirlwind of excitement as the band added a Juno Award to their collection as well as landing their highest Billboard charting. They are one of a handful of bands that have the title of “Longest Standing Artist” on the Nuclear Blast roster.
