Insain-Enlightening the Unknown


Reportedly recorded back in early 2013, with production taking place at the 16th Cellar studio (Hour Of Penance, Fleshgod Apocalypse...), the 25 minute "Enlightening the Unknown" will end up serving as the swan song for the French act (aptly-titled) Insain. As the follow-up to 2010's self-released "Spiritual Rebirth" (Mixed and mastered at the Hertz studio in Poland, "Spiritual Rebirth" was picked up and re-released by Kaotoxin Records in early 2012) "Enlightening the Unknown", which saw the addition of new bassist Benoit Jean (Sentence, ex-Inquinatus, ex-Sinister Faith) and features a guest in the form of Daniel Neagoe (Eye Of Solitude and Unfathomable Ruination), not only picks up where this French act last left off, but it builds upon the viciousness that was "Spiritual Rebirth" and takes things into even more of a frightening direction! As technical as this lot was on this EP (Insain's two guitarists, David Schonbackler and Nicolas Becuwe respectively, work well together with some of the solos here proving to be quite exceptional!)  the band still manages to be all the more relentless with the voice of Louis Lafitte (cookie monster-infused growls to the max!) sounding utterly inhuman! With Jonathan Juré's spastic drumming keeping Insain on edge at all times (he's paired up nicely with Benoit Jean as the two really compliment each other) the band's sonic (BRUTAL) death metal assault is nothing if not constant as it's played-up in EXTREME fashion! If this truly is to be the last song and dance from this gruesome death metal outfit then at last they are doing it right. Insain are going down with all guns blazing as they leave a lasting testament to just how insane they were!!!
