Insatanity was a Philadelphia death metal band that was formed in 1992 . The band issued several demos (Insatanity, Ad Maiorem Satanae Glorium and Unholiness Rising) before entering a contract with Greece's Unisound Records. One album was issued but after a series of disagreements the group switched to the New York-based Mortal Coil label. This resulted in a compilation appearance and a split disc with Immortal Suffering.
The band's line-up has been re-hauled several times. The band came out of a hiatus of several years and promised new material for 2005. Most recently Lytle switched to vocals. Insatanity and drummer Dave Kinkade parted ways due to personal and professional differences in the autumn of 2007. The band was using Mark Green as a stand-in drummer for upcoming shows.
INSATANITY/IMMORTAL SUFFERING - split - MORTAL COIL
While slightly better-known than Immortal Suffering, Insatanity is more
of a name due to its many underground activities, not to mention its
clever name. It is not only the bands and the label which are purely
underground either. The artwork, music, lyrics and the whole 'split'
concept are creations of the metal underground. Now that the target
market is clearly defined the bands' music can itself be defined as
good old death metal with slow/fast arrangements and deep vocals.
Insatanity is more religion-oriented in its lyrics, while Immortal
Suffering is entangled in the web of horror - a fact which is
accentuated by its Impetigo-style use of samples. There is little to
rave about here and little to complain about. The line is
drawn. This is purely for death metal fanatics. Others will find little
use for this disc. May this be the beginning of a new and successful
death metal label. - Ali "The Metallian"
