The unstoppable grindcore juggernaut known since 2000 as ANTIGAMA unapologetically dispatches their seventh full-length studio album, The Insolent in the coming days, and as a precursor to its official collision with humankind, Invisible Oranges has issued an exclusive stream of the entire creation. This all transpires just one week before the band makes their long-awaited return to American soil for their East Coast tour with Selfmadegod Records lablemates, Drugs Of Faith, including the band’s second time invading Maryland Deathfest.
Recorded in February at JNS Studio in Warsaw, The Insolent was engineered by Pawel Grabowski, mixed by Pawel Grabowski and the band, mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound in Bethesda, Maryland (Pig Destroyer, Agoraphobic Nosebleed), and features a guest appearance by the legendary Polish electronic artist Władysław “Gudonis” Komendarek. Advance warnings of the persuasive pummeling The Insolent offers have been issued from respected media outlets in recent weeks, including a write-up from Stereogum which offers, “By all rights, ANTIGAMA should be widely recognized as Europe’s answer to Pig Destroyer… The Insolent is ANTIGAMA‘s seventh LP and 24th release overall, and the band sounds as young and hungry as ever. Few bands have pushed themselves so hard for so long.” Invisible Oranges blasted, “They’re known for technical playing and mind-bending song structures, you’d almost call them progressive were it not for the fact that this stuff will probably send death Theater fans running for their lives. For a grind outfit, their song lengths tend to stretch into ‘normal’ territory, but making a good hallucinatory riffscape takes time.” Metal Insider’s review issues in part, “To say that this music is violent in nature would be a drastic understatement. It’s played out like a rabid and injured animal, backed into a corner and fighting for its sheer existence. At times raw and feral, and at others sleek and insightful, ANTIGAMA have penned an album that could almost be defined as ‘progressive grind’ as they combine both the artistic and the bombastic into a cohesive package.”
