Genre: Brutal Death Metal
1997: Insision crawled out of the ashes of underground acts Embalmer and Ildoor in Stockholm, Sweden, the aim was to create brutal death metal in absurdum. To create something different then what was growing in the Swedish scene that year. Something Brutal. Something Deadly... Insision.
1998: Debut demo Meant to Suffer is released, and Insision is acclaimed as one of the most promising new death metal acts of Sweden. Soon after Roger Johansson and Daniel Sommerfeldt of Disfigured join the band, immediately taking musical command driving the band towards new heights of technical brutality. The record labels start to notice Insision, and in the end of the year they sign with Heathendoom Music. The 97-98 line up contains Joonas Ahonen on guitar and Johan Thornberg on vocals.
1999: The debut MCD The Dead Live On is recorded at the Necromorbus Studio, and released shortly after (also re-released by Immortal Souls Prod. 2002). The album was different compared to other brutal Swedish death metal bands, no other Swedish band had ever sounded as American as Insision. On this recording: Joonas Ahonen on guitar and Johan Thornberg on vocals who were shortly to leave the band for personal resons.
After this, Roger & drummer Tomas Daun developed the technical brutality of the band even further. Insision soon recruits Dellamorte's bass player Daniel Ekeroth and Azatoth's singer Carl Birath. With the new line up things started to move forward. This is The Insision we know today. The new line-up begins a row of live shows with bands like Dark Funeral, Merciless and The Haunted etc...
2000: A new demo Promo 2000 is recorded at the "Real Music Studio" located just outside of Stockholm. The result is sheer brutality & precision to the limit! After this, more shows followed with Hypocrisy, Necrophobic, Merciless, Dark Funeral etc etc.. Now Insision really showed what they where made of!
2001: Guitarist Toob Brynedahl of Genocrush Ferox joins the band, and Insision soon had their debut show as a five-piece as opening act for Disgorge (Mex) in Gothenburg (Swe). Necromorbus Studio is visited once again to record an earlier planned 10" split EP with Inveracity for Nuclear Winter Rec. (also out as a demo under the name Revelation of the Sado God). Shortly after Insision signs to the major label Earache/Wicked World Rec.. In October, the full-length debut Beneath the Folds of the Flesh is recorded in the mighty Berno Studio (The Haunted, Deranged etc).
2002: Beneath the Folds of the Flesh is set for release in April. The response to the album is awesome and as expected...Tours and gigs are made. And Insision is revealed unto the world.
2004: After building a reputation of themselves Insision hits the studio again to compose yet another indept look into the world of Insision... Released in July 04 the full-length Revealed and Worshipped is brought unto the world....
In the same time Members T. Daun (drums) and T. Brynedahl (second guitar) decides to leave Insision and left are the main machines in the band, Carl, Roger and Daniel who aren't short in replacing T. Daun as drummer.
In mid-04 Thomas Daun is replaced by "monster drum-molester Marcus Jonsson" from Stockholmian thrash act Pandemonic.
A European Suffocation tour is lying ahead plus a couple of other feasts, gigs and smaller mini tours... This year gave both opportunities and smaller drawbacks... But in the end Insision gained more then they lost.
And so the wheel keeps spinning!
2005: After the awesome Suffocation tour along w/ Disgorge (US) and Dementor in late 2004 and the fast line up change within the band, [band]Insision[/b] was ready for the world once more and gets an offer during a Finland headline trip with Godhate, to do a Scandinavian tour w/ The Haunted on the eminent "Close Up Made Us Do It Tour" with Mac Jonsson Behind the drums, a Suffocation tour in the gig-bag and all waste dumped Insision is unstoppable and makes a fabulous tour around Scandinavia (Sweden, Norway, Finland, Denmark) just to return home to even more tour-offers and gigs.... Also Insision starts working on the third studio album since the signing on Earache/Wicked World in 2001.
Working on new material between concerts and preparing for the last tours this year (UK, Australia, South East Asia). Planning to, after that, put all concentration on the making of the new album... Hopefully coming out in late -06 or early -07
2007: Insision signs a new deal with Dental Rec. in Stockholm. Unleashing the new album IKON upon the world! The record is recorded in Black Lounge Studio with owner Jonas Kjellgren (Centinex/Scar Symmetry).
2008-2009: As Insision is a live act and has (almost) always been a five piece band. Insision decides to recruit one more guitarist. After trying out a couple of good guitar players they decide to take Magnus Martinsson onboard. Insision is playing several festivals including Death Feast, Party San, Neurotic Deathfest, NRW Deathfest among others.
After 10 years Daniel takes the decision to quit [band]Insision[/b] to focus on his writing skills (which includes the famous book titled "Swedish Death Metal")
2009-2010: Insision contacts the bass player Joel of the brutal Swedish death metal band Immersed In Blood settled in Gothenburg (swe).The band asks Joel to join forces. The answer Insision got was "of course". Joel has been in the death metal scene for several years and has a lot of experience/background in playing, touring. He was perfect replacement for Daniel who also had a lot of experience in the overall scene.
2010: Insision is fully concentrating on taking the band futher on the road of death metal.
The band started of 2010 with a headlining tour in the U.K with the British DM bands Dawn Of Chaos and Dead Beyond Buried & Sweden's Remasculate. The tour was followed up by playing at the Neurotic Death fest in Netherlands, NRW Deathfest in Germany and Gothenburg Deathfest.
2011: Insision inks a deal with the U.S. label Severed Records for a two album deal. The first one is an EP titled End Of All. The Ep is released 1st of June 2011 and it contains 5 tracks of epic brutal death metal. The EP was recorded just outside Stockholm area at Studio Off Beat (General Surgery/Vicious Art) with the dedicated engineer Anders Eriksson. The songs are a statement of the journey Insision has made until now. End Of All is also just a beginning of what to come….
