Review by JD on April 10, 2016.
Once again, Belgium has offered up a splendid piece of metal and it is one powerful slab of metal to be hold. For such a small country they truly are then next nexus for extreme metal in all of its glorious forms.
Insanity Reigns Supreme comes at you with a combination of doom, death and black metal, packaged just right and not in Lo-Fi manner of some acts out there. Sounding like some twisted demon spawn of Cradle of Filth, Novembers Doom, Bathory and Italy’s Oath they paint a dark painting of their world that is filled with pain, hatred, despair and blood throughout their album – a macabre work of art.
I urge you to listen to the dark expressiveness of 'Opposer' or the brutal haunting of 'Cursed Be The Faithful' to get the full strength of this band in all of its glory. Each track is a sonic vision of the cursed world most of human kind would never venture into. With the addition of soothing female vocals that add to the ambiance of starkness it makes Insanity Reigns Supreme’s album literally jump out of the player right at your very soul.
I have not enjoyed such an extreme multi genre album in a while nor have I been this impressed right out of the blocks either. Unorthodox was one of those albums that truly was made and delivered in perfect balance of attack, depressing darkness, blood born death and the inevitable fear it will create before the end comes.
Insanity Reigns Supreme has lived up to its moniker and way past it as well.
Rating: 9 out of 10
