Upon being assembled in 2003 by founding members Martin Samson and Stef Jomphe in Gatineau, Insurrection has been growing, modulating and mutating into a machine of an aural onslaught. Assaulting witnesses in both languages of French and English, Insurrection has blended its calculated technicality to create a signature mixture of merciless death metal that has emerged from the prominent Canadian scene.

Shortly after their 2009 debut release Prologue, giving true life to their monstrosity, the formation launched their second release 2010’s Fracture, a dark prophecy of unforgivable times and a brutal soundtrack to the fall of man. It pushed the limits with every outing, creating Insurrection to become more than the sum of its parts, but a merciless abomination.

Now the band is gearing up for their follow up Prototype to push yet another brutal assault and tour cities across Canada to convert the unwitting to their legion.

Death metal needs fresh blood and let’s hope this album inspires some youngsters to steer away from the crap and come back to serious business” Metal Made in Canada

“This 5-piece monstrosity has struck again with precision, aggression and near perfection! INSURRECTION delivers a one of a kind album – solid and crushing from beginning to end” – The Ottawa Epitaph

Free Scion A/V EP Featuring VEKTOR

Scion A/V, the creative enterprise of Scion devoted to the discovery, nurture, funding and distribution of compelling music and arts programming today releases a special two track, 15 minute EP featuring the scintillating sounds of Philadelphia sci-fi thrash metal band VEKTOR. Recorded this past January at The Glass House in Pomona, California as part of the Scion-presented Earache Records label showcase (that also featured Oceano, Bonded By Blood and White Wizzard), the free EP features VEKTOR performing the mind-obliterating tracks Cosmic Cortex and Tetrastructural Minds. The EP is available as a free download now at ScionAV.com.

“Earache has introduced metal fans to many great bands over the years,” comments Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotion for Scion.

“Vektor is a band that creates metal for fans of metal. We’re happy to work with them on this release.”

VEKTOR formed in 2002 in Tempe, Arizona and quickly established a name for itself by embracing heavy metal’s past while carving out an original niche; combining thrash with elements of black metal and progressive rock. The band’s labyrinthine songs question reality and existence while at the same time portraying the future as a dystopian wasteland destroyed by greed, power, corruption and control. Weird time signatures, banshee wails, eerie jazzy passages, over the top soloing and frontman David DiSanto’s banshee calls intertwine into cohesive, atom-smashing assaults that move from intricate progressive playing to breakneck thrashing in the blink of an eye. With vicious musicianship, complex composition and futuristic sci-fi themes, VEKTOR recalls the glory days of Voivod, Watchtower and Coroner as its herculean sound challenges the parameters of modern heavy metal.

VEKTOR EP tracklist:

1.) Cosmic Cortex (9:40)
2.) Tetrastructural Minds (5:27)

Earache Records was founded in 1987 by Digby “Dig” Pearson. The seminal UK label has launched the careers of many acts now widely considered pioneers of extreme metal including Napalm Death, Carcass, At The Gates, Morbid Angel, Cathedral, Bolt Thrower, Godflesh and Entombed and had a heavy hand in exposing underground music fans to the realms of death metal and grindcore music. Earache is currently celebrating more then two decades of bringing extreme music to the masses.
