Maurizio Iacono comments, “The pandemic hasn’t been kind to anyone. Maybe for the powers that be but that’s for another discussion. One thing is for sure, the spirit of metal lives on. KATAKLYSM was part of the first cavalry of metal bands alongside Deicide to complete the first metal tour coming out of the reopening and we are extremely proud of this. it was a major confidence booster for many bands and now tours are starting to return in full force and today we are happy to announce that we will return in early 2022 with the excellent DARK TRANQUILLITY from Sweden and Germany’s NAILED TO OBSCURITY. This is a long tour covering both the US and parts of Canada, We are proud to hit the stage once more and bring our heavy hitter set and conclude the campaign for Unconquered with this tour. Come hang out, every concert is a blessing these days!”

NAILED TO OBSCURITY comments, “Wow, so this is really happening! Except for one festival show we had the pleasure to play this year, which only made us hungrier for more, these shows will be the first for us since the pandemic hit. You can’t imagine how much we are looking forward to getting back on the road with no other than our Swedish friends in DARK TRANQUILLITY and Canadian death metal force KATAKLYSM. This is gonna be a blast and we can’t wait to see you all very soon!”

UNCONQUERED was recorded and engineered by the band’s long-time producer and guitarist JF Dagenais at JFD Studio in Dallas, TX. KATAKLYSM enlisted legendary Colin Richardson, post-retirement, to aid in the mixing of UNCONQUERED’s weightier and modernized sound with additional help from Chris Clancy’s technicality and precision.UNCONQUERED stands among the best produced albums in the band’s career. The infamous heart beast, which also appeared on In The Arms Of Devastation (2006), Prevail (2008), and Heaven’s Venom (2010), makes its return with a cover image created by artist Blake Armstrong.

For more than ten years, NAILED TO OBSCURITY from Northern Germany have successfully developed their distinctive style, somewhere between melodic death metal and doom with progressive influences. Their underground debut Abyss… exhibited these rare first glimmers, but their albums Opaque (2013) and King Delusion (2017) especially showed a real evolution within their sound, allowing the band to take some huge steps, leading up to their critically-acclaimed Nuclear Blast debut Black Frost, which was released in early 2019. Their melancholic songs never fall short of the necessary brutality, and always create a distinct dynamic which mesmerizes the listener who profoundly experiences every note and every word. This magic has already won over the fans of festivals such as Wacken Open AirSummer Breeze and Party San Open Air as well as those who attended their tour throughout Europe as main support to DARK TRANQUILLITY, tours with AMORPHIS, SOILWORK, JINJER, EQUILIBRIUM, and LORD OF THE LOST plus their appearances alongside renowned acts such as ARCH ENEMYPARADISE LOST and AT THE GATES.
