At the start of 2009, Paralyzed decided to call it quits.
Since its foundation in 2002, Paralyzed has found a distinctive own sound. Their repertoire consists of powerful rock with a hint of metal and emo. The band members’ average age is 21.
These five give an energetic show with a clear message. The band has performed up to fifty times in- and outside the area, among others at De Kade (Zaandam), De Bakkerij (Castricum), Manifesto (Hoorn), Donkey (Heemskerk), Volta and Winston Kingdom (Amsterdam). For local radio they played an acoustic set. A performance on a qualifying round of the province’s pop price ‘Noord-Hollands Glorie’ in 2003 resulted in the people’s choice award.
In march of 2004, the first EP ‘A Taste of Life’ was released independently, followed by ‘The Day You Stole Gravity EP’ in may 2005. The mini album ‘What Goes for a Dream’, containing new material, will be released in the summer of 2007.
Paralyzed wants to play as many shows as possible to keep developing. Every song is performed with a lot of energy to let the audience not only hear, but experience the music.
