Insatanity Interview

1.Can you give us an update on what has been going on with the band since the recording and release of the new album?

Until time of the Pandemic, We have been working on the set list for touring we were planning to do for the album. Now since everything is shut down, We have begun also working on new material and on other planned projects.

2.Recently you have released a new album, musically how does it differ from the stuff you have released in the past?

The production. We finally have a release that we really love the sound. We have been working on getting to that point for some time. Jarrett did a great job and we enjoyed working with him.

3.This is also your first full length since 1996 and with the exceptions of a few ep's being released once every few years the band has been mostly silent, can you tell us a little bit more about what has been going on during that time span?

We were mostly doing shows and tours. We did US tours in 2005, 2007 with Zircon, 2010 and 2015 with NervoChaos. We also did a European tour with Bloodsoaked in 2014. We also did a Fests, March Metal Meltdown in 2002/2003, The Los Angeles Murderfest in 2005, Extreme Texas Metalfest in 2007, Hostile City Deathfest in 2009, and the Las Vegas Deathfest in 2017.

4.The band started out with a more traditional death metal style before evolving into blackened death metal, what was the decision behind going into this musical direction?

It was a gradual process, as we started to listen to more bands coming out. We added those influences into our written style.

5.A lot of your lyrics cover satanic and occult themes, can you tell us a little bit more about your interest in the dark arts?

There’s a lot of interesting stories and tales associated with the occult. I take what I read and create my own stories from them.

6.What is the meaning and inspiration behind the name 'Insatanity'?

Mark, the original singer and creator of the band, came up with the name. He wanted something to stand out and define want his lyrics and themes were about.

7.Can you tell us a little bit more about the artwork that is presented on the album cover?

It’s a representation of the ancient world, but we went with a style that would be more recognizable as ruins. The songs on the album are a collection of different eras of the bands, so we are paying homage to our past.

8.Originally the band was from Pennsylvania but now resides in Florida, what was the decision behind the move?

It was a personal decision, I got tired to the cold and snow, so I decided to move close to the beach, lol. Not much about music involved with it.

9.What are some of the best shows that the band has played over the years and also how would you describe your stage performance?

Every show play for our fans We appreciate. They keep us going, so I wouldn’t say one is better than the others. Our stage performance, We just come out and bring the aggression and groove. We enjoy bringing our music to everyone.

10.On the new album you also had done a Deicide cover, what was the decision behind doing your own version of one of their songs?

When Satan Rules His World was originally planned to be shared on our YouTube, but the final track we had planned for the album ending up having an issue. With us running tight with studio time, we decided to cut the song and include WARHW as well.

11.On a worldwide level how has the reaction been to your music by fans of black and death metal?

It has been great. We have been hearing and receiving a lot of good reviews and comments.

12.What is going on with some of the other bands or musical projects these days that some of the band members are a part of?

With the touring shut down right now unfortunately. We have been writing, mostly for Insatanity but also putting in time on other projects and those may see releases by years end or the beginning of next year.

13.Where do you see the band heading into musically during the future?

We have some ideas planned for the next album but don’t plan to deviate to far from the way we write. We will always have new influences but are style of writing we have will still be is core.

14.What are some of the bands or musical styles that have had an influence on your music and also what are you listening to nowadays?

I can really answer that for myself. Bands that inspired me from the beginning to now is pretty vast but mainly consist of Bolt Thrower, Naplam Death, Unleashed, Emperor, and Behemoth.

15.Before we wrap up this interview, do you have any final words or thoughts?

Everyone stay safe and thank you for all your support. Thank you for your time and this interview. We’ll see you all on the road again.
