Album Review: Insurrection – Extraction (Galy Records)

Extraction is the fourth album from Eastern Canadian brutal heavy metal band, Insurrection. It will be released on October 6th via Galy Records.

Insurrection 1

Playing an exciting blend of death & tech metal, Insurrection are masters of dishing out an aural onslaught, one that comes in both French & English. With a serious amount of meat to the bones of the guttural vocals & complex riffs, System Failure opens the album with a bang.

Rhythmically challenging but with plenty of hooks to keep things interesting & not sounding contrived.

The album motors along in a blast of white metal fire with Onward to Extinction, Pull the Plug & The Eulogy of Hatred being powerful slabs of metal that slay with their ferocious & catchy riffs. There is no give here, no let-up from the intensity of the technical death metal on show here.

Not that you’d want a break anyway. Extraction is filled with hooks that dig away at the brain matter threatening to leave you a dribbling wreck. Le pesant d’or ups the tempo to the point of insanity. The venomous vocals spat out at a blazing pace alongside the heavy groove.

The penultimate track, Assassins really lays the exciting guitar groove on thickly. Mixing perfectly with the complex sounding riffs & shattering drum beats. It’s the perfect precursor to the chugging finale, Data Extracted…End Transmission. A head-banging delight that caps off an impressive showing from Insurrection. They make tech/groove death metal seem so easy.
