Meditations – Track Listing:
01. Guillotine
02. Outsider
03. The Last Breath I’ll Take Is Yours
04. Narcissist
05. Born To Kill And Destined To Die
06. In Limbic Resonance
07. And Then I Saw Blood
08. What Doesn’t Break Doesn’t Heal
09. Bend The Arc, Cut The Cord
10. Achilles Heel

Produced by the band’s own guitarist J-F Dagenais and drummer Oli Beaudoin, the record was mixed by Jay Ruston (ANTHRAX, STONE SOUR a.o.). Mastering duties were handled by Paul Logus (PANTERA a.o.).

The artwork was created by Ocvlta Designs by Surtsey, who also crafted the artwork for KATAKLYSM‘s previous record, Of Ghosts And Gods.

Meditations marks the return to old work ethics. All four band members wrote and composed together under the same roof for the first time in over a decade and returned to the old days of songwriting efforts which saw the band’s classics such as Shadows & Dust, Serenity In Fire and In The Arms Of Devastation come to life.
