Massive Metal Monday: Kataklysm – “Thy Serpent’s Tongue”
  |  @   |  

Canadian death metal titan Kataklysm is one of those rare bands that has managed to stay true to its brutal roots over the course of a nearly 25 year career. They have also managed the rarity of keeping a relatively stable lineup throughout their career. The band like to refer to their sound as “Northern hyperblast.”

Kataklysm continue to lay down the Northern hyperblast on their recently released twelfth studio album Of Ghosts & Gods. This week’s Massive Metal Monday track is the first single from the album “Thy Serpents Tongue.” Check out the video here below and pick up a copy of the record, which is out now worldwide on Nuclear Blast Records. You won’t be sorry!

When I was growing up in rural Indiana in the early ’80s, there was very limited access to heavy music. These were the days before MTV blew up with the whole hair metal, Headbangers Ball phenomenon. But on Sunday nights, there was a two-hour radio show that came from WOXY, just across the state line in Oxford, Ohio (home of Miami University of Ohio). It was called Massive Metal for the Masses, and I would wait all week for it to air. It was through this show that I was introduced to bands like Venom, Bathory, WASP, Michael Schenker Group, Slayer, and countless others. This Monday weekly column is my tip of the hat to that show. I call it Massive Metal Monday. Every week, I will pay tribute to defining moments by the artists that laid the groundwork for heavy metal to become the worldwide cultural bond for all of us metal heads.
