Kataklysm Unveil New Song “Narcissist”

  • Axl Rosenberg

Hmm… I am undecided on this new Kataklysm song, “Narcissist.” It certainly starts out strong, with Tibetan throat singing and mounting drums leading up to a city-leveling explosion of an awesome riff… which arrives just in time for the song to be about a third over. And then it doesn’t really go anywhere. And, hey, it’s short, so maybe that doesn’t matter. But I’ve listened to it twice now and both times I’ve come away with the feeling that the song is missing… something. It feels like it’s really just starting to take off when it ends.

Am I nuts? Check out “Narcissist” for yourself via the below video and see what you think. Kataklysm’s new album, Meditations, is out June 1 on Nuclear Blast. Pre-order it here. The band also has some live dates coming up! Get those at the bottom of this post.
