March 2013 "Remnants" the first EP release
Recorded John Haddad of Trench Studios
Artwork from Tom Bates.
Insentient is a blackened death metal band formed in 2009 by guitarist/vocalist Leslie Medina. Though the band has been around for a little over 3 years, it is only until late 2013 that that lineup was solidified.
Now Insentient is complete with current members: Kimberly Orellana on guitars, Randy Escobedo on bass, and James Coppolino on drums. The band looks to unleash its assault on the metal masses with its unique metal styling's.
The bands style has drawn comparisons to bands like Death, Dissection, Hypocrisy, and Necrophobic, to name a few. Expect to hear some melodic guitar riffs, guttural vocals, intense blast beats, with a touch of shred guitar.
What to expect when you listen to INSENTIENT:
"The band's amazing riffs and song structure is what really sucks you in..."
- Zack Dusedau, METAL UNDERGROUND (May 06, 2013)
"...stunning technical and clear riffs set within well-spaced harmonies. " William’s abundant riff on bass adds additional command to the music. And let’s not forget James’ drumming, holding the rhythm and promulgating the steady sound by pounding well-defined percussions.""... you are sent reeling, met head-on with a full blast from the entire band. Frantic, galloping drums and bass burst into a racing melody filled with pulsing riffs. The evil growling carries you places within your mind; with its entrancing allure..."
- Sigrid Ragnörack, Metal Wizard (Apr 17, 2013)
" INSENTIENT Rising to The Top of The Los Angeles Underground Decimating and Sonically Captivating all with their Sheer Merciless Brutality and Straight In Your Face Terroristic Oraganic Musicianship that will Literally Blow Your Head AWAY! Demonstrating Yet Again why INSENTIENT Reigns Supreme in The Los Angeles Underground! " REMNANTS" is a DEFINITE MUST! Jimmy Cabbs
- Jimmy Cabbs, KNAC (Apr 01, 2013)
"... this band is a refreshing blast of old school stylings. Insentient features two female members, both on guitar, and it would be a mistake to underestimate this group because of that simple fact.... the atmosphere they’ve created an epic feel as well. Together they blend skull-crushing thrash riffs with slower, clean breaks that act as a quick breath of air before being submerged back under the tidal wave of high-gain guitars. What had initially caught my attention was actually William on bass.William powers behind the break-neck fast riffs with ease, adding a significant amount of punch to this already thunderous sound." " you are blasted square in the face with a viscous riff paired with the chaotic stampede of bass..."
- Dallas Luckey, The Metal Review (Apr 04, 2013)
