Catalepsy Remain ‘Faithless’ on Upcoming Album — Song Premiere

Musebox

After one album and an EP, death metallers Catalepsy are returning with ‘Bleed,’ their most punishing release yet. The new album finds the Florida heavyweights fine-tuning their harsh-yet-catchy songwriting style and focusing on the groove-based aspect of their sound. “On our last release, we were more of the death-core style, which [meant] constant breakdowns and speed,” says guitarist Rob Walden. “When it came time to write new material, we were interested in writing something memorable to groove to, as well as brutality.”

‘Bleed’ isn’t out until May 10th, but Noisecreep is pleased to have the exclusive premiere of ‘Faithless,’ the album’s opening cut.

Catalepsy drummer Benjamin Sutton told Noisecreep a little about ‘Faithless’ and its back story.

“The song was written by Rob Walden and its pre-production was done by Eric Ellis (ex-Bury Your Dead),” said Sutton. “The lyrics for ‘Bleed’ go along the same lines as a lot of the material on our 2008 ‘Iniquity’ album. It talks about how religion can sometimes be very corrupt and deceitful.

The recording of the song went pretty smoothly, since we already had the pre-production done. We had some time to think about adding new parts to the arrangement, and our producer had some catchy ideas. We then added some ambient, subtle effects near the end of the song. We’re extremely happy with the way ‘Faithless’ and the rest of the album turned out.”

Catalepsy will be touring with Deception of a Ghost and This Time It’s War in May.
