Insolvency // Illusional Gates // Album Review

8

Insolvency are back with another blistering offering this time in the form of Illusional Gates, a twelve-track attack on the senses. 

The album tackles all of the modern world issues through the eyes of the band that seem to be so prevalent today, our obsession with modern technology and the issues which stem from this modern-day cancer, depression, rage, mental health and daily anxieties the album builds on foreboding themes of oppression and living out of time, in a dream-like reality spinning out of control.

You get that powerful sense across the album, angst-ridden tracks spilling their proverbial guts out across the floor through intense riffage, heavy lyrics and monstrous sounding recordings. The brutality within the four walls of Illusional Gates is a thing to behold. The balance between the violence of the music and technical prowess is balanced beautifully and creates this gargantuan sound that just swallows you whole. It’s an addictive quality in an album and before you know it you will have run through these twelve blistering tracks and find yourself yearning for more. 

A powerful statement, Illusional Gates has lifted Insolvency to greater heights and with guest vocals from both Ryan Kirby (Fit For a King) and CJ McMahon (Thy Art Is Murder) it shows that Insolvency can more than punch their weight with the greats of the genre. 

 The album is set for release on February 21st 2022, with limited edition bundles being made available HERE.
