Chicago,Illinois’s Kataplexy are up-and-coming band to watch for in the brutal death metal scene I n 2011 the band released there Extreme Hockey Metal Theme Promo titled “Intermission Zamboni Disfigurement” consisting of three songs which was released independently by the band. The promo was intended to give the fans and death metal community a idea of what we want to sound and accomplish in the scene. The promo was tossed around from local shows to Maryland Deathfest. It was very well received throughout the death metal community. In 2011 the band once again independently released their first-length “Mind Deterioration”. So far has received very positive reviews.

Within that year we lost Eric and Mario and in return had Drummer AJ Thomas Join the band. Once established in the band Kataplexy began to play shows and start a name for it self in the Chicago Metal Scene. Towards the End of 2006 do to complications we lost Drummer AJ Thomas. Start of 2007 We added Drummer Matt Getto and Guitarist Mike Mayborne to create the more Fast and Technical side of Kataplexy. With the new line-up it gave us the chance to play with great bands like Dying Fetus,Origin,Vital Remains,The Faceless,Incinerate and Gorgasm. We had very Solid line-up till 2010 When Pat Rybovic was let go from the band. In The same year the Band went into the Studio to Record their first Album “Mind Deterioration”.
