Gallic kicks with ‘Death Wish’ video
Insolvency have released a video for new song ‘Death Wish,’ taken from their forthcoming debut album, Antagonism Of The Soul. Vocalist/Guitarist Valentin Gondouin said: “This song deals with the hardest time we come across during our lives: despair, loss of faith, being helpless. We made that video with this kid surrounded by his toxic dad, thinking about suicide but he can’t do it and he’s still a prisoner of his dad’s control. The music itself mixes melancholic and smooth melodies with aggressive riffs and instrumentals.”
The French metalcore mob have spent the last five years establishing themselves within the French underground scene, appearing at festivals and playing with the likes of Napoleon, No Return, Smash it Combo, Melted Space and Atlantis Chronicles.
Insolvency hit the studio in 2016 to record Antagonism Of The Soul in the UK with Jim Pinder and Carl Bown (Bullet For My Valentine, While She Sleeps, Machine Head). The result is a whirlwind of Blackstard & Valentin Gondouin’s elastic guitar work, soaring melodies and drummer Mickaël Tamario’s frantic assault; all pinned together by the double vocal barrage of Gondouin and bassist Pierre Challouet.
Having signed with French label Send The Wood, with distribution via Seasons of Mist, Insolvency now look forward to a busy 18 months promoting their debut album. Young, passionate and full of potential; Insolvency set to follow in the footsteps of countrymen Gojira in showing the world what the French metal scene has to offer.
