In 2008 CATALYSIS formed out of the ashes of the best parts of some outstanding Florida bands.
It all started when Shawn Brandon went looking for elite musicians to build a band with, so he posted some ads on several local music classified site looking for other musician interested in heavy/melodic music that would set them apart from other bands in their local scene.
Within a day or two Jared Sasso answered the ad and after a lenghty phone discussion and jam session the two guitarist hit it off and they knew they had instant chemistry.
They're mixture of heavy riff phrasing, acoustic melodies & precise harmony structures set them apart from the norm.
Next challenge would be finding a vocalist that could complement they're chemistry and musical outlook.
Following up on a tip from a friend Brandon and Sasso contacted vocalist Mike Vredeveld about the vocalist position.
Seeking a heavy yet melodic singer the two guitarist knew it would be a challenge but after hearing Vredeveld's mixture of heavy screams/growl phrasings with his ability to belt out crystal clear melodic vocals they knew hands down he was the man for the job.
After numberous bassist auditions Ben Ross messaged the band about coming out to audition & from first note he fit right in with the guys personally & musically. With his 17+ years experience, total dedication & desire Ben was the perfect man for the job
After countless auditions the band is still seeking a skilled and dedicated Drummer that can bring a solid foundation to they're songs & take them to a new level.
If you are a Metal Drummer please contact CATALYSIS asap.
