KATAKLYSM’s ‘The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined’ Lands On German Chart

“The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined”, the new multidisc DVD from Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based extreme metallers KATAKLYSM, has entered the German chart at position No. 98.

Commented KATAKLYSM frontman Maurizio Iacono: “We did this DVD with no expectations. Our little story immortalized with the luck of a label that would support it, I guess our great fans in our second home Germany have showed their love and brought a DVD release into the Top 100 album charts of the country. This is very unusual and we are very humbled by it. Thank you!”

“The Iron Will: 20 Years Determined” depicts the ups and downs of KATAKLYSM‘s long, turbulent career, as well as footage of the band’s performance at last year’s Summer Breeze festival, which took place August 18-20, 2011 in Dinkelsbühl, Germany. The cover art for the release was created by artist Colin Marks (ORIGIN, EXODUS, NEVERMORE) and can be viewed below.
