Kataklysm’s Maurizio Iacono on The MetalSucks Podcast #501.5 (BONUS EPISODE)
Maurizio Iacono of Kataklysm is back on the show for a bonus episode! We’re here to discuss all things Goliath, the band’s latest album, which is out right now via Nuclear Blast Records. During our chat, we also discuss what it was like releasing their previous album Unconquered in the middle of the pandemic, being one of the first bands to tour the United States coast to coast after the pandemic, and the band’s goal of getting the new album done and out to fans.
We also chat about his experience in the last year with managing bands and the rising tour cost, the breakdown and reality of what venues are doing with merch cut percentages in modern times, the importance of championing a young band and navigating them through the current climate, and why it is a human right to question authority and have a clear open discussion in these times.
