Once upon a time, it used to be easy to guess a band’s origin based solely on their sound, especially in the death metal circles. Each scene sported a unique characteristic which would immediately give away a band’s land of origin. In today’s scenario, globalization has not spared metal and it becomes harder to discern the location based on sound. Take the case of Insision for example. Based on their brand of death metal, one would be inclined to say they’re from the Florida scene. In actuality, the band hails from Sweden and have been churning out straight up, old school brutal death metal since 1997. The music here is straight forward and has absolutely no frills. Insision are all set to unleash their 4th full length, titled ‘Terminal Reckoning’ after a break of 8 years on Sevared Records.
Composed of some darn heavy riffs, the death metal of Insision is devoid of melody which is uncharacteristic for an album coming out of Sweden. But the band could not care less as they’re only intention is to grind some bones with their brutal riffs. It’s quite amazing what the band achieves with just the traditional death metal tropes.
The band is currently streaming a track, ‘Shapeshifter’ to give the listeners an idea about what they’re up against. It’s got groove, brutal riffs and a stylish solo to finish things off. What more can you want in your death metal?
