GOLIATH was recorded at JFD Studio in Dallas, TX and Studio City, CA as well as The Cabin in Orlando, FL by J-F Dagenais, who also produced and engineered the album. For the mixing and mastering, the band returned to Chris Clancy with assistance from Colin Richardson.
The cover artwork required an image that captured the iconic battle of David versus Goliath, a theme that is echoed throughout the album while matching the power of the music. The band handed the reigns to renown Berlin metal illustrator Eliran Kantor (Testament, Fleshgod Apocalypse) who took the KATAKLYSM look and gave it a macabre filter that compliments the brooding sense of uneasiness that was felt during the writing and recording of the album.
