Music Feature: Insurrection

Music Feature: Insurrection

For the next Music Feature we’re going much heavier and to another province! Please welcome my pals in a death metal band from Gatineau, Quebec: Insurrection!

We (in The Parallax) had the pleasure of sharing the stage with these fellas last summer along with The Agonist. It was a small run of shows but it was a great time, and we got along right away. I’m pretty sure we bonded over the discussion of the house explosion that rocked Mississauga, Ontario…which happens to be nearby where I and the rest of the Supply Co. team lives.

Insurrection has three full lengths to their name already: ‘Prologue’ (2009), ‘Fracture’ (2010), and ‘Prototype’ (2013).

Moving forward, I’m happy to finally have the opportunity to listen to the songs I saw Insurrection perform on their upcoming release and fourth full length, ‘Extraction’. Their tune ‘System Failure’ had me chanting along at the shows, and it really stuck with me ever since. Who doesn’t feel like chanting “Failure” and “Pressure”? Well, their lead vocalist Stef will make sure everyone in the crowd does! ‘Extraction’ is out October 6th via Galy Records.

Their live show is incredible…full of energy, very technical, and aggressive. If you’re not singing along, then you’re definitely headbanging or at the very least not standing still. The death metal outfit did have a lineup change as well, seeing drummer Phil and bassist Frank depart. You’ll be seeing their newest lineup this fall as they head out on their ‘Extraction Tour 2017’ which hits Quebec, Ontario, and New Brunswick. Dates are on the poster below. If they’re heading to town near you, I definitely suggest checking these dudes out!
