      Kataklysm's ninth album (2008).

      Kataklysm is an extremely reliable Canadian death metal band, but this consistency comes at a cost to their originality as each album sounds much the same as the last. Their latest release 'Prevail' breaks the style somewhat by favouring a medium tempo and groove-laden style, and although it's not the most original or gripping death metal album I've heard, it's certainly aggressive enough to merit a listen if you're in a particularly nihilistic mood.

      The vocals are the strongest point, ranging from a guttural belch to more forceful yells, and juvenile metalcore fans should see albums such as this as required listening, as education in what angry music should really sound like. The production quality is high, which cheapens the drums a little by making them sound clinical, but gives a great razor-sharp edge to the guitar riffs, while the band still finds time to execute fun solos in songs like 'Blood in Heaven' in particular.

      1. Prevail
      2. Taking the World by Storm
      3. The Chains of Power
      4. As Death Lingers
      5. Blood in Heaven
      6. To the Throne of Sorrow
      7. Breathe to Dominate
      8. Tear Down the Kingdom
      9. The Vultures Are Watching
      10. The Last Effort (Renaissance II)
