Unsigned and Unholy, Presented by Indiegogo: Insurrection
Crowd-funding albums is all the rage these days. While the fact that established bands can raise money for pretty much any project through crowd-funding is well accepted gospel at this point, there’s been some debate as to whether the model is viable for lesser-known unsigned bands still trying to make a name for themselves in the metal world at large. At MetalSucks we certainly believe that it is, so we’ve teamed up with Indiegogo to highlight four MetalSucks-approved, up-and-coming, unsigned bands that are currently running campaigns on the platform. Last week we featured Ontario, Canada’s Mandroid Echostar and this week we’ll put the spotlight on their fellow Canadians from Gatineau, Quebec: Insurrection.
These Canuck death metal groovers have been mentioned on MetalSucks before, although never outright featured. When we gave Corey Mitchell the keys to the MS Mansion a couple of years ago he stumbled upon a free comp to promote a death metal show and was impressed with all the bands thereon, of which Insurrection was one.
Insurrection play a groovy type of death metal that’s equal parts Dying Fetus, Decapitated and Lamb of God. Here’s a ripping song called “History Repeats Itself” posted on the band’s Soundcloud that’s sure to get those heads a bangin’:
The band has already surpassed their very modest Indiegogo goal of $2,500 to record their new album with four days still to go, but when is more money ever a bad thing for such a deserving band (especially when the initial goal is so low)? The packages they’re offering are pretty cool, too; one person has already shelled out $300 for the band to write a song about a topic of the fan’s choice, and someone’s even forked over $500 to have the band play a private show at their house.
