Kataklysm is a death metal band from Quebec, Canada that is considered by many to be one of the greatest performing acts in the history of the genre. Perhaps best known for popularizing the drum pattern employed by the band's drummer Max Duhamel, called the "northern hyperblast," Kataklysm has contributed much to the evolution of the death metal genre since forming in 1991. Known in its early days as one of the world's fastest, most chaotic metal bands, Kataklysm has done much to keep pace with this description, and is now, by all accounts, faster and more chaotic than they were in the early 1990s.
