Sweden is packed to the gills with death metal acts and heavy metal bands in general, and Insision is one of those bands inhabiting that very heavy metal land. There are quite a few bands that are taking a melodic route to their music, but Insision is here to walk the other path, the path of pure devastation and unrelenting brutality. With the over melodious nature missing from Terminal Reckoning what you end up getting is an unfiltered and brutalizing death metal assault.
Insision sounds exactly like what looking death in the face would be like, or at least be the sound track to it, or maybe even be the soundtrack to your horrifying death. Terminal Reckoning is a blood thirst quenching eight tracks, but there is much more than just blood for you to feast on with this album.
Terminal Reckoning is a disease ridden and corpse laden album that reeks of putrefied cadavers among other eviscerated beings. You would think that the number of victims stops at eight, but that is just an underwhelming assumption. Once Insision smells blood they don’t stop at eight once the album is done, and they don’t stop until everyone is soaked in corrosive acid and set ablaze.
Terminal Reckoning is a hideous behemoth that’s ready to shred anything that stands before it. Insision is death metal that hasn’t been tainted by over production and compromised by any frills. These Swedish death dealers stick to the ever darkening blood stained and scabbed path of pure death metal.
Insision’s new offering gurgles to life with Among Us, which begins with dissonant wailing and whistling winds that shifts into the bludgeoning onslaught and the meat of the album. After the initial brief intro, Insision rumbles on swinging its bloodied ax cutting you into pieces.
Death metal such as this makes you feel as though you’re trapped in a dark dungeon or basement awaiting your torture. It’s a shocking kind of darkness, its menacing and almighty.
Insision brings the hammer down on your skull with gut ripping and rib cracking riffs with an entrail covered bass that rumbles and hacks away at your crumbling face. Atop the heavy chainsaw like riffs are drums that strike with incredible precision cutting every main artery. The vocalist spills his gurgling vocals with a powerful vocal performance that is just as devastating as the crafty musicianship.
Terminal Reckoning is a chugging and lurching mass of viscera and unfiltered death metal. If you’re ever wondering what looking death in the face feels like, just take a few minutes to listen to Terminal Reckoning. With their new release, Insision really grabs you by the throat, and as much of a thrashing as you get you just still can’t stop headbanging.
