Watch the lyric video for ‘Those Who Rot The Souls’ here:
The band comment: “…amidst the muffled, maddening beating of vile drums and the thin, monotonous whine of accursed flutes; to which detestable pounding and piping dance slowly, awkwardly, and absurdly the gigantic ultimate gods, the blind, voiceless, tenebrous, mindless Other Gods… these are…’Those Who Rot the Souls’.

Birthed in Moscow in 2004, KATALEPSY‘s first demo Femicide brought their first victims to the altar of brutality, and led to the band’s first forays beyond Moscow.
In 2007 they spawned their debut full-length Musick Brings Injuries, and blood was spilled in the circle pits and mosh-battles all over Russia. The next year KATALEPSYreleased a split with partners in crime FLESHROT and BLUNT FORCE TRAUMA, and allowed the band their first tours abroad, including the Swiss festival Mountains of Death ’08 Open Air. Soon, shows and festivals across Europe followed: Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands, Austria, Czech Republic and Finland all becoming battlefields of unholy beatdowns and technical grooves.
The band inked their record deal with the famed Unique Leader Records following their Your Fear Is Our Inhabitancy EP, and have gone from strength to strength since. Now behold their ferocious new effort, the terrifying Terra Mortuus Est.
