Analepsy is a Portuguese slamming brutal death metal band based in Lisbon, Portugal. Their sound is described as a crossover of old-school brutal death metal and modern melodic elements. The band was formed in late 2013 by the ex-vocalist Ricardo Proença and the guitarist Marco Martins. They met through a mutual friend after a Disgorge (USA) concert in Lisbon. Ricardo was looking to form a new band, and Marco was the guitarist of the brutal death/grindcore band Brutal Brain Damage at the time. Flávio Pereira was at that concert too and joined shortly after.
