Crannk Chats with Kataklysm Guitarist JF Dagenais

Thundering with newly fuelled power from the shadows and dust of humanity’s crumbling existence, Kataklysm triumphantly returns with their 14th full-length studio album: ‘Unconquered‘ due for worldwide release 25th September via Nuclear Blast. It is coming up on three decades for the French-Canadian melodic death metallers and Unconquered is one of the best most powerful albums to date with themes of fighting back and overcoming permeating through the album.

I caught up with guitarist JF prior to his positive Covid result for a really great chat about Unconquered, playing with seven-string guitars on this album, recording, and a whole heap more.
