Published Jun 01, 2015With the album Of Ghosts and Gods due out on July 31 through Nuclear Blast, Montreal death metal crew Kataklysm have given us a taste of what's in store by sharing "Thy Serpents Tongue."
Beginning with a threatening guitar riff, the tune soon kicks into overdrive with an impossibly speedy assault of kick drums. From there, it's mayhem, with the arrangement boasting ultra-heavy guitar tones and ghoulish death growls. There's a hint of melodic, atmospheric drama in the choruses, while the verses are pure aggression.
Frontman Maurizio Iacono said in a run-on sentence of a statement, "The time has come once again, Kataklysm on our 12th studio album and still going strong, we are very proud of this record, it holds the best elements of the bands 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, horns up!"
Hear the song below. Stay tuned for more from Kataklysm, since they intend to release a video for every song from Of Ghosts and Gods.
