Next I have Katalepsy’s Autopsychosis. This is an Abner pick, (which I can no longer do anymore, because I just don’t have the time) and is categorized as a mix of brutal and slam death metal. Opener “Lurking In The Depth 3:49″ gives us a hefty serving of meat, topped with thick vocal bellows, a memorable solo piece and a drummer who has his feet glued to the kick pedals. To be honest, this band seems to be the evolution of bands like Dying Fetus and Cannibal Corpse who really aren’t going to matter as much with acts like this coming around and stepping all over their shit as they shred and technicalize the fuck out of each and every song while doing so. If you don’t feel the grooves on “Cold Flesh Citadel 3:41″ or “The Pulse Of The Somnambulist 4:04″ you may want to check your pulse, because you just might be dead. There’s nothing that these guys don’t do justice, as even the “Needles Of Hypocrisy 1:59″ interlude is pretty juicy. Kataplexy have much to offer the metal scene in the future and this release is proof. If you don’t have it, go out there and fucking get it. This is one of the most promising bands that I’ve ever heard in this genre and the future of gore.
Highlights: Lurking In The Depth, Cold Flesh Citadel, The Pulse Of Somnambulist, Amongst Phantom Worlds, Needles Of Hypocrisy, Knifed Humility
