Kataklysm’s Maurizio Iacono on The MetalSucks Podcast #352
Kataklysm frontman Maurizio Iacono is our guest this week. We discuss the band’s latest album, Unconquered, how anxiety has driven his career and having to readjust during this time, how delaying releasing a record right now is not “metal,” and whether he plans to start writing a new album right away because the band can’t tour. Iacono also discusses how his job as a booking agent has been reinvented because of Covid-19, living in the middle of the road politically and the backlash that occurs because of it, why cancel culture might be necessary for us to understand each other, and how we can’t educate each other anymore because of misinformation from the media.
Petar, Brandon, and Sylvia break down how the Chris Cornell statue and the entire year of 2020 are like oil and water in light of the recent vandalization, Fred Durst stating that he and the boys of Limp Bizkit were never friends, and Corey Taylor almost joining Anthrax.
Songs: Kataklysm – “The Killshot,” Hinayana – “Cold Conception” (Featuring the late Nature Ganganbaigal of Tengger Cavalry)
