Insense: Soothing Torture

From the Black Metal wilderness of Norway, comes a Metalcore/TechniMetal powerhouse, Insense, with their 2nd full release, Soothing Torture. This 10 track CD is a must have for the complex Metalhead that is into the likes of Meshuggah, Mnemic, Fear Factory, Killswitch Engage & God Forbid. This CD just blisters from beginning to end!

Insense, an Oslo, Norway four piece powerhouse, serves up a real winner with Soothing Torture. Explosive, dynamic & full of attitude, Insense clobber you over the head & demand attention. From the haunting opener, "Helplessness", the Metalcore stage is set, and track #2, "Making Up for Lost Time", continues their frantic pace. Much of this CD is made up of headbanging, foot stomping relentless aggression, that would make any Hatebreed hardcore fan happy.

The non-stop groove of Insense, as well as their mechanical & technical abilities, provides the listener with a headbanging experience that stands up to any band on the scene today. Take a listen to the bombastic "Constriction", the title track "Soothing Torture" or video song "I, Deviant" to get a real sense of what Insense is all about. This is some fine Metalcore with an attitude!

Recorded in their native Oslo, Norway, Soothing Torture is a masterpiece. Boot stomping grooves, technical complexity, and flat out heavy!! What more could you ask for? This should be a record that will find it's way into a lot of CD players around the world. A MUST listen!
