Insision
Revealed and Worshipped
July 2004
Released: 2004, Wicked World
Rating: 4.3/5
Reviewer: Lord of the Wasteland

Sweden’s brutal death metallers, Insision, first got people talking with 2002’s BENEATH THE FOLDS OF FLESH and their latest CD, REVEALED AND WORSHIPPED continues to feed the machine. Residing on the Earache sub, Wicked World, Insision delivers sharp, well-played death metal in the vein of Morbid Angel and Deicide. Production work is handled by Nasum vocalist Mieszko Talarczyk, who does an excellent job of mixing everything well. Vocals are double-tracked with lots of ultra-low growls counterbalanced with ever-so-faint screeches. The music isn’t unrelenting aggression for 30 minutes, either. There aren’t any clean vocals or guitar wankery going on, but several songs exhibit a groove and bounce that I can’t recall hearing in death metal before. The guitars are exceptionally fast, yet precise, with loads of trickery. Variety is the name of the game on REVEALED AND WORSHIPPED and thankfully, the CD never gets bogged down by repetitiveness or a lack or originality.



Carl Birath possesses one of the best death metal voices I’ve heard in some time and on “The Foul Smell of Humans” and “Havoc,” he attacks the lyrics with such deep, guttural intensity that it’s jaw-dropping. The guitar parts are perfectly executed by Toob Brynedal and Roger Tobias Johansson on “Imminent Vision” and “The Foul Smell of Humans” as they marry up thick, chunky riffs with technical precision. The only negative on this CD is the silly title track. The Satanic chanting and evil samples is WAAY overdone and causes some of the intensity created by the first three tracks to be lost, but thankfully, things pick up again easily.



Insision is quickly becoming a force to be reckoned with on the death metal scene. They incorporate all the best parts of Floridian death metal with Swedish death and add just a dash of groove. If REVEALED AND WORSHIPPED is a sign of what they can do, this band has a long career ahead of them with only the best yet to come.

Insision
Revealed and Worshipped
September 2004
Released: 2004, Earache Records/Sound Pollution
Rating: 3.8/5
Reviewer: Anders Sandvall

Insision released their debut album in 2002 entitled BENEATH THE FOLDS OF FLESH. Now it’s time for this Swedish death metal act to release their follow up, REVEALED & WORSHIPPED. For this album they have chosen to record in Soundlab Studios with Mieszko Talarczyk as producer. The production sounds extremely aggressive, brutal and hard. Talarczyk has done a brilliant job.



If I didn’t know that these guys are from Sweden, I’d bet that they were Americans. I consider Insision to be genuine Florida-style death metal in the vein of Morbid Angel and Cannibal Corpse. They seem to be into the US death metal sound, but there are some smaller hints of Swedish death metal as well. Insision play US death metal so well, they surely have a great future ahead of them if they continue to sound as good as this.



The music is fast and is very technically played. It’s growling lead vocals straight through the album and there’s not any slightly calmer passages at all. Though I really like this, I do have problems with hearing the constant growling lead vocals. It wouldn’t hurt them to include some regular lead vocals in this brilliant musical inferno. It’s just hard to hear what the band is singing about. For all of you who like Florida-style death metal this album is worth checking out. It doesn’t get much better than this.
