With their drummer in rehab trying to kick the sauce, Kataklysm have been required to find a new kitman for their upcoming gigs.
Enter former Neuraxis drummer Oli Beaudoin.
He has been recruited by the band for the upcoming recording of the new Kataklysm album, as well as the shows the band has planned for June and July.
The new Kataklysm LP is called Waiting For The End To Come and, as far as I remember, tracking’s well underway for the effort.
“Oli played with Kataklysm before on the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise last year and he did a phenomenal show,” commented guitarist Jean-François Dagenais.
“He is extremely talented, focused and ready to do the job needed. Some of you might be familiar with him from his work with Neuraxis and session work with Keep of Kalessin and Belphegor. We are very happy to have him on board and he comes with a thumbs-up approval from Max as well. We have one hell of a ride in store for you with this new album, so let it begin.”
Drummer Max Duhamel announced last week that he was taking a break from the band to address his issues with alcohol.
