For almost three decades, the US/French Canadian-based melodic death metal syndicate KATAKLYSM has delivered unapologetic waves of powerful sound across the entire globe. On August 11th, 2023 the band’s fifteenth full-length studio album Goliath will be unleashed unto the masses via Nuclear Blast Records.
Today, KATAKLYSM releases the second single, ‚Die As A King‚. The single is the prequel to the first single ‚Bringer Of Vengeance‘ both lyrically as well as the theme of the video. Musically, ‚Die As A King‚ is the modern update of traditional death metal meets catchiness.
Maurizio Iacono comments, “‘Die as a King‚ is the prequel to the first single ‚Bringer of Vengeance,‘ the song shows the fall of King Richard I ‚Lionheart‘ and the message is one of standing tall for your convictions until the end, even when facing certain death. The song embodies some of the KATAKLYSM melodic trademarks with a brutal undertone and groove-ladened rhythmic section that intertwined with each other.“
