KATAKLYSM‘s “At The Edge Of The World” video was filmed on March 20 at the band’s hometown show at Club Soda. This concert also marked the end of the group’s “Spread the Venom” European/North American tour. The video was helmed by director Tommy Jones (DEATH ANGEL, SOILWORK), who is also working with KATAKLYSM on the band’s upcoming documentary DVD, “The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined”.

“The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined” will begin with the band’s inception in 1991 and tell the lasting story behind of one of the most important extreme musical exports in Canada’s short 143-year history. Tommy Jones will catch the band’s heartbeat on the road and to put the memories together. The DVD will also include interviews with a wide range of characters, including the band’s infamous first frontman Sylvain Houde, who sang on the first three KATAKLYSM albums: “The Mystical Gate Of Reincarnation” (1993), “Sorcery” (1996), and “Temple Of Knowledge” (1999).

A single and a video clip for the title track “The Iron Will” will be recorded this summer.
