Insain Breaking Up

Last month we broke the news that Insain was due to release a new EP this coming March, but unfortunately the band has now announced this release will be its last.

A new teaser trailer for the EP can be seen below, courtesy of Metal Injection, and Kaotoxin Records also comments on the band's breakup:

"That's really heavy-hearted but yet with an absolute pride, that we have to announce that one of the Kaotoxin artists is no more as Insain decided to split up a little while before that brand new, and consequently posthumous, EP we'll release on March 11th (preorders start this Tuesday!).

"Proud for them, for what's been achieved and for such an absolutely brilliant and boundaries-pushing, brutal, fast, dark and heavy as balls new release that's gonna be the legacy of how awesome and will always be the band and its releases.

"Proud of that particular release too, as it's a real 'family' work like we love them at Kaotoxin: remember We All Die (laughing)'s feat. on Eye Of Solitude's 'The Deceit,' Déhà of WAD(L) feat. on Colosus' 'Blestem' SideBlasts Series release, Laurent of Drawers producing the latest Nolentia full-length and so on.

Pit Stories: "She Has A Dick!"

Each week we check in with hard rock and metal acts to get their pit stories from memorable live shows. Metal gigs may be home to intense moshing and shredding solos, but it's also a place where magic can happen and love can blossom. Of course, none of that will be happening in this week's pit stories.

Today we've got two stories of love gone wrong at metal shows from Unsu and Insain, which both signed to Kaotoxin Records earlier this year. First up is Unsu, with the following tale of a strip tease that ended up showing more than the audience was expecting:

Once there was a girl in the audience. She climbed on the stage and started to strip. She actually was a guy in fishnets, in fact. So, during the whole stong, I've played with his balls with the microphone. This actually was at the Lille WinterFest #1 in Lille and you can hear Micky screaming "Elle a une bite!," which translates in "Sha has a dick!" on the bonus live tracks of "The Filthy."

Vocalist Louis from Insain also had this story to share of missing a few not-so-subtle hints from a female fan: More...

Insain Recruits New Drummer

French death metallers Insain have checked in with the following announcement about recruiting a new drummer:

"We, Insain, are proud to announce the addition of Benoit Peichert (Years Of Tyrants, The Bukkaker, ex-Darkall Slaves) as our new drummer. Sangli is, obviously, still Insain’s skin beater but Benoit will handle the fast, brutal and deadly job, on the road and in the studio, until Sangli has fully recovered.

"In the meantime, we're delighted to announce we’ve started the writing process for a new MCD that will be recorded early next year, with Benoit behind the drum kit, for a tentative release by mid-2013 on Kaotoxin records.

"Until then, get 'Spiritual Rebirth,' on CD and limited DigiPak edition (100 hand-numbered copies) through Kaotoxin at this location."

You can also check out the opening track from "Spiritual Rebirth," titled "Black As Your Light," at this location.

Insain Signs Multi-Album Deal With Kaotoxin

French dealers in brutal death metal Insain have officially inked a multi-album deal with Kaotoxin Records, beginning with the official issuing of the band's previously self-released "Spiritual Rebirth" album. Metalunderground.com will soon be exclusively streaming the opening track from the album prior to its release.

Preorders for the album will start on March 12th, for a March 26th release date, both in limited edition hand-numbered DigiPak and as a regular CD. Kaotoxin commented on the band:

"Insain started in Paris, back in 2007, year during which they released their debut demo, 'Corpse before Death.' The band is all about early 90's death metal worship, mixing U.S. and Polish influences, like a crossover between Deicide and Vader, Immolation and Decapitated... the fast, brutal and deadly way!

"The debut album, 'Spiritual Rebirth,' was mixed and mastered at the Hertz studio in Poland by Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawski (Vader, Decapitated, Hate...) in 2010 and then (self-)released the very same year with artwork and layout by Michal 'Xaay' Loranc (Behemoth, Nile...).

"Featuring eleven tracks for a total running time of 37+ minutes, 'Spiritual Rebirth' is a merciless brutal and twisted beast hammering the eardrum until it bleeds, showing the band's impressive songwriting talent, mixing up-to-date blasting utter brutality with catchy melodies everyone will get stuck to like a fly in some gargantuous spider's web and lightning fast thrashy riffs that'd leave the listener no rest until his neck's properly broken.
