Last year the great Kataklysm released their latest album, “Waiting For The End To Come,” and as always, it’s an absolute monster! Along with all of the new tracks on the record, they also threw in a cover of Sacred Reich‘s “The American Way,” and now the video is online! Here’s what front man, Maurizio Iacono, said on the clip: “KATAKLYSM has never covered any band before on disc in its 20 year existence. We decided to change that on the new record and wanted to do something people didn’t expect, but also something that stood through time. The message behind the song is still relevant now. The difference today is that it’s a global problem, not only in North America but everywhere. I personally grew up on early thrash metal and SACRED REICH was and is one of my all-time favorite bands. It was very important that we had the blessings from the band to do this video. The guys in SACRED REICH gave us the green light and are happy that we did this. We chose to reconstruct the same type of video they did for it back in the day but in a modern day setting.”
So now you know the back story, and all that’s left to do is PRESS PLAY AND HEAD BANG!
