Bay Area Tech Death/Thrash Metallers INSANITY have debuted the title track from upcoming Unspeakable Axe Records release Visions of Apocalypse, the band’s first full-length album in two decades! Consume the Apocalypse right here.
Visions of Apocalypse will be released on CD November 13 on Unspeakable Axe Records. Pre-orders are being taken at this location (CDs are shipping now).
A vinyl LP version on Dark Descent Records is also in the works, tentatively set for a late year release.
Innovators of the blast beat and influencers of the likes of genre godfathers like Napalm Death, INSANITY have survived repeated tragedies and setbacks since forming in the mid-80s. The Bay Area metal masters should need no introduction, but somehow after 30 years they are still one of the most unsung bands in the underground. In 2015 they are finally returning to sand-blast the ears of loyalists and unbelievers alike. The long-in-the-works album Visions of Apocalypse was begun years ago, with original drummer Bud Mills involved, until his untimely passing from cancer in 2007. Through this loss and subsequent lineup changes, the band persevered, led by original guitarist and longtime vocalist Dave Gorsuch, with Juan Casarez stepping behind the kit. In mid-2015, the final tracks were laid down and at last the album was completed.
