4.0 out of 5 stars Insanity...that pretty much sums it up! September 7, 2004
By Tom Z
Format:Audio CD
Darkane are the true masters of thrash. It's too bad they got overlooked in the Swedish popularity surge a few years back. If they had come out at any other time they would be at the top of the underground metal scene. Unfortunately that didn't happen and now they're forced to dwell in obscurity. Enough of my b*tching though, and on to the review. Insanity is the perfect title for this album. The weird layout of the lyrics, the distorted vocals and the eccelectic (god I butchered that word!) sound of the album will make it seem like your going insane. All makes for a damn heavy and strange experience. Like what would happen if you threw a handful of extreme acts like At The Gates, Slayer and old Metallica together then amped up the strangeness by about 1000. I don't have Rusted Angel or Expanding Senses yet but from what I hear they might even be better than this. If your a fan of thrash this is a must have, it beats the f*ck out of Lamb of God that's for sure!

5.0 out of 5 stars Controlled Chaos August 3, 2001
Format:Audio CD
On first listen, Darkane's Insanity is a thrashing, seething and chaotic metal beast. Imagine careening down a mountainside in a cement truck with the certain violent end waiting for you at the bottom. Next to you in the driver's seat is a recently escaped mental patient foaming at the mouth--all the while holding a fist raised with two fingers aloft in the metal salute. A total mess waiting to happen, right? Absolutely not!! Upon the 3rd or 4th listen, the chaotic amalgam that is Darkane starts to take shape and form. The mental patient appears to be in more control than one believed. For every one of Peter Wildoer's manic beats, there is a guitar riff or melody provided by Malmstrom and Ideberg that restrains(albeit only marginally)the maelstrom. Check out the sick rythms of Impure Perfection, for example. The unique vocal morphing of Andreas Sydow also sets Darkane apart from the increasingly overcrowded and stale death metal genre. His delivery fits the schizophrenic nature of the music perfectly. Darkane's synthetic blend of Gothenburg influenced melodic death and industrial mayhem is a challenging listen. The influence of the more robotic and asceptic Meshuggah is apparent throughout this release. It will appeal to fans of both extreme death as well as Iron Maiden influenced thrash/death. Climb into the cab of the cement truck and instruct the pilot: "DRIVE ON. YOUR INSANITY WILL SAVE ME!!"

5.0 out of 5 stars Get Ready For Pure 100% Evil Swedish Brilliance March 17, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Welcome to the dark and insane world of Darkane. Full of maniac drumming, lightning riffing, swedish melodies, and vocals straight from hell. These guys came out with a debut that few bands could even dream of making throughout their pathetic career. Everything on that cd is now intensified and branched out even further. Im not sure if you are ready for music of this volume and INSANITY, which to me is the perfect title for this amazing collection. Its faster, louder, and a hell of a lot scarier. Get ready for the ride of your life! Hold on TIGHT!

Even in a Swedish metal scene filled with killer death/thrash bands, Darkane have managed to stake out a pretty distinctive niche. Darkane combine elements of bands like Iron Maiden, Slayer, At the Gates, and Meshuggah and spit out some very potent metal. They can blaze along at lightning speed one minute, and then turn around and hit you with an insanely addictive melodic passage. The songs constantly evolve, and with an unpredictability reminiscent of the mighty Meshuggah, Darkane's sound never gets boring. "Hostile Phantasm" and "Distress" are doubtless two of the fastest, craziest metal songs in history, and they're far from the only slabs of pummelingly heavy metal on here. A sound like Darkane's requires plenty of chops to pull off, and fortunately they have them. These guys create complex song structures that would give many bands an aneurysm. Peter Wildoer's drumming is brilliant, very fast, heavy, and technical. Klas Ideberg and Christofer Malmstrom churn out the hard-driving harmonies and screaming solos characteristic of the Swedish style, and Jorgen Lofberg's thumping bass is a constant presence in the background. And Andreas Sydow, while not my favorite vocalist, is definitely a versatile one. At times screams he screams like In Flames's Anders Frieden, and other times he delivers his vocals in a robotic growl similar to Meshuggah's Jens Kidman (yes, I know that's three Meshuggah references now, but the influence is obvious). Anyway, it's very impressive. "Insanity" is an excellent album all around, and definitely essential if you consider yourself a Swedish metal fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Damn near perfect. January 24, 2002
By Micah
Format:Audio CD
This is yet another great album by Darkane. Sadly it was brought to life without the vocal genius Lawrence Mackrory. Replacement vocalist Andreas Sydow's voice is nowhere near as controlled or versatile as Mackrory's. Moreover his vocals lack the conviction and visceral power of the departed frontman. Competent and talented though he is, Sydow sadly lacks the energy and passion to bring the music to life like the original lead singer did. Utilizing many of the aspects that made their freshman release so appealing Chistofer Malmstrom and Peter Wildoer have once again compiled an excellent assortment of songs ranging from serene and contemplative to fast paced and chaotic. Replete with mellow interludes and a cacophony of guitar and percussion barrages Insanity will not bludgeon you into submission with a relentless wall of aural chaos as many bands will. Like the debut release, Insanity will push you to the limits of your musical endurence, give you a brief reprieve, then resume full on assalt on all of your senses. Darkane has once again created a monster Melodic(or Symphonic if you'd like)Black Metal album of amazing destuctive capability. But sadly the spark of life is not in its eyes this time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not as good as Rusted Angel BUT, it's still great!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great
This is a great cd, as are the rest. They do NOT sound anything like Meshuggah. The vocals can take some getting used to be some people, and nothing about this cd is boring.

5.0 out of 5 stars swedish thrash worth hearing
At the very heart of the matter Darkane is a death/thrash band who dosn't stray too far from the music of The Haunted, Defleshed, The Crown, God Forbid and others in the genre. Read more
