Insane - "At Dawn They Die" (video)

Ο δίσκος των Insane "Victims"
Υπάρχουν περισσότερες από είκοσι μπάντες (στο ευρύτερο metal φάσμα) που φέρουν το όνομα Insane. Μεταξύ αυτών και οι Σουηδοί με τους οποίους θα ασχοληθούμε στην συγκεκριμένη ανάρτηση. Thrash metal μπάντα σχηματισμένη πριν από δώδεκα χρόνια.

Μετά από μία σειρά EPs και demos κυκλοφόρησαν το προ τετραετίας τον πρώτο "ολοκληρωμένο" τους δίσκο υπό τον τίτλο "Evil". Ο διάδοχός του είναι προ των πυλών. Φέρει τον τίτλο "Victims" κι αναμένεται στα τελειώματα του τρέχοντος μήνα. Η μπάντα αναφέρει ως εμπνεύσεις τους Possessed, Iron Maiden και Mercyful Fate...

Δελτίο τύπου: «Dying Victims Productions is proud to present the highly anticipated second album of Sweden’s Insane, Victims, on CD and vinyl LP formats. For over a decade now, Sweden’s Insane have inconspicuously built a catalog of dark ‘n’ dirty thrash metal worth reckoning.

That they’ve gone largely unnoticed by all but diehard thrashers is a crime, and attributable more to the sheer abundance of metallic options still coming out of their homeland rather than any lack of quality. In fact, across Insane’s two EPs, three demos, one split, one compilation, and especially 2017’s Evil debut album, one will be hard pressed to find a more strident iteration of ripping ancient thrash.

And Insane continue sticking to their (strident, ripping) guns with their second full-length, Victims. Lyrically focused on the dark world of Swedish murderers, Victims indeed evokes a darker aspect than the already-dark Evil predecessor; the harmonic dual-guitar action sends well-timed shivers down the listener’s spine.

But just like that preceding LP, here do Insane show their mastery of epic songcraft, as the majority of the tracks again top five minutes whilst exhibiting that exhilarating rush so crucial to thrash, winding along wildly and ever so slightly touching upon more “tech” textures.

If anything, the band engage and challenge in equal measure here, feeding manna to musos and rivetheads alike. Likewise, their iteration of thrash is a multilingual one, varyingly nodding to classic Canadian and German tropes and especially those that have been budding in the wider Scandinavian region more recently and also more “back in the day.”

A unique aspect to Insane that the quartet continue on Victims is the full-bodied, almost rock ‘n’ roll-ish production: warmly analog but not faked, gritty and dirty but never belabored, and thankfully, nothing ear-piercingly overdriven like so much pizza thrash. Essentially, Victims is for those who like their thrash dank and pure and, above all, well-crafted.

If thrash as a whole has its waves of popularity/oversaturation, depending on the year, Insane remain resolute as perpendicular maverick ready to challenge the passé and played-out. If you’re ready for their bandwagon to start rolling, become one of their Victims NOW!»

Bio: «Something’s wrong in the small Swedish town of Kristinehamn. In 2009, the four bloodthirsty killers in Insane began terrorizing the underground with a slew of demos and EPs, before committing their first full-length offense with EVIL in 2017.

And these boys have a criminal record, with past and present associations ranging from Witch Blade and Avskum to Nattramn and Blues Pills. Now, with help from Dying Victims Production, Insane has struck again.

Their sickening sophomore album, Victims, cuts 10 tracks of remorseless thrash metal straight from the cadavers of classic bands like Possessed, Iron Maiden, and Mercyful Fate. So, lock your doors, bar your windows, and for God’s sake, cover your ears. Because Victims is sure to turn anyone who hears it into a homicidal maniac!
