They impressed virtually all those in attendance with their performance at Bloodstock Open Air 2013 and now the mighty Kataklysm have planned their UK return for the start of 2014. This tour will be Kataklysm's first full tour of the UK in almost a decade!
Far from Kataklysm considering themseles enough extreme metal for one show, they will be in very impressive company for their UK tour. Main support for the shows will come in the shape of the mighty Fleshgod Apocalypse. Fleshgod are Nuclear Blast label mates of Kataklysm, and together they will form one of the mightiest extreme metal tours they UK has seen in recent years. Opening up the shows will be the equally impressive South American death metal three piece Krisun. The full list of shows can be found below:

Kataklysm main man Maurizio Iacono is certainly looking forward to the tour judging by his comments:
"It´s been almost three years since our last club tour in Europe and we are so excited to come back and blow off the roof of every club next January & February. We've built an album that will stand the test of time and will need many headbangers, body surfers and mosh pits to give it justice and we are building a special show that you will never forget. This time, after almost a decade we have decided to tour the UK as well, after seeing the reactions at this years Bloodstock Open Air. There´s no doubt it´s time to come destroy. Raise your pints!"
Kataklysm will be touring in support of their forthcoming album, entitled "Waiting For The End To Come"
. The album will be released October 28th 2013 through Nuclear Blast Records. Further updates about this ear shattering tour will be posted here if there is any additional news. If you wish to keep up-to-date with Kataklysm the band is on Twitter at @KataklysmBand
