Concord The World

What happens when you mix the slightly melancholic, but catchy metalcore melodies from Killswitch Engage together with a progressively leaning, ambient melodic hardcore stance akin to the one purveyed by Misery Signals? Well, Hungary's iNSANE might be one answer, as their fourth album "Concord The World" basically offers bits and pieces from both worlds, though with a leaning on the former, old school style clean-ish metalcore from the early 2000s.

So even though many of the choruses are melancholic, well-produced, purposefully clean - professional one might even say - and source heavily from Killswitch Engage, it's the melodically screamed verses that make iNSANE a band worth considering. It's here where names like The Ghost Inside, and indeed Misery Signals come to mind, as the band's heavy, yet lingering melodies and clear, decipherable screams meet in a great dynamic together. It's nothing you haven't heard on a number of records before this one, especially now when the ambient hardcore style is so popular for the time being, but iNSANE execute their sound convincingly.

They avoid most metalcore clichés and win extra points through the many sublime ambient sections that launch into anthemic clean choruses straight after - even sounding a little bit like our local boys in Raunchy on a couple of songs. So although "Concord The World" falls slightly behind the (admittedly ridiculously strong) competition this year, it's still a release of international quality that should open a few more doors for the band.
