Portuguese slamming, brutal death metallers ANALEPSY reveal details of their upcoming new album and follow-up to 2017’s debut “Atrocities from Beyond”. Titled “Quiescence”, the album will be released on May 27th on vinyl via Agonia Records. Digital/CD/MC release will be handled by Miasma Records and Vomit Your Shirt on April 15th.
A new song, music video and pre-orders are expected to be released on January 31st.
“Quiescence” continues the space motif from ANALEPSY’s previous releases, but from a different perspective. There are no living creatures, only the deserted cosmos awaiting its own demise. The album features guest appearances from Ricky Myers (Suffocation, Disgorge), Angel Ochoa (Cephalotripsy, Disgorge, Abominable Putridity, Condemned) and Wilson Ng (Facelift Deformation, Vermicular Incubation).
The band commented: “We are delighted to present our most recent work: Quiescence! This has been a tight process, and despite all the changes the band went through, everything worked like clockwork. The essence of our music lives on!”

The recordings of “Quiescence” took three months (August – October, 2021), entailing the skills of guitarist/co-founder Marco Martins, guitarist/vocalist Calin Paraschiv (ex-Pestilence), bassist João Jacinto and ex-drummer Tiago Correia. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Miguel Tereso at Demigod Recordings studio in Caxarias, Portugal. The cover artwork was created by Pedro Sena – Lordigan.
ANALEPSY‘s sound can be described as a crossover between old-school brutal death metal and modern melodic elements. The correct pronunciation of the name of the band is “uh-nuh-leh-psy” [ʌnʌlepsy], and it was chosen due to its (now obsolete) meaning: recovery of strength after an illness. The band was formed in late 2013 and started gaining popularity with the single “Genetic Mutations”. Their short discography embraces the 2015 EP “Dehumanization by Supremacy”, followed by 2017 debut album “Atrocities from Beyond” and split release “The Kraanialepsy Split”, to whom the band was invited by Kraanium. The release of “Atrocities from Beyond” was met with growing interest and turned the eyes of many towards the band. In the months that followed its release, ANALEPSY won the Portuguese W:O:A Metal Battle, to later perform at Wacken Open Air 2017. Their first show outside Europe led them to Japan in 2019.
