From the first tones the shit hit the fan and the crowd went berserk. Their vocalist knows exactly how to interact with the crowd and pushes them to another level that finally results in a huge circle pit. It’s pretty clear that this is one hell of a band that knows how to handle a crowd. – metalrage.com
MagnaCult is back – angrier than ever, and ready to crush you with their second album, Insua EnVenom. With their signature mix of thrash and death metal, MagnaCult turns up the volume. Get ready to bleed: MagnaCult’s killing season is open.
With their second album, Insua EnVenom, MagnaCult – Seb (vocals), Spit (bass and backing vocals), Tomas (guitar, acoustic), D. (guitar, acoustic), and Bionic (drums) take their sound to the next level. More brutal and technical than their 2007 debut Synoré, Insua EnVenom is faster and more powerful, packed with massive guitar solos and full of groove.
“Insua EnVenom means true inner strength,” explains Bionic. “Everyone has inner strength, but it’s only the person who lives in an advanced state of self-consciousness who can force themselves to become the best they can be. Putting yourself down with words, behavior, drugs and thoughts will keep you from attaining this power. And there are always external forces that will try to make you fail. This is the main subject of MagnaCult’s new album Insua EnVenom.”
The band has toured through Europe, sharing stages with DevilDriver, Ill Niño, Five Finger Death Punch, Shadows Fall and Kittie. “Touring with these awesome, hard-working bands was an amazing experience,” says Tomas.
“We can’t wait to get back on the road and crush audiences with our new record – we’re ready to take MagnaCult to the next level,” adds Seb
“I know our fans will enjoy our new songs,” adds Spit. “They understand where we come from, what MagnaCult is about. They are our army and continue to stand side by side with us. We’re ready, we’re hungry, we’re angry. We’re MagnaCult!”
Creating the crush
MagnaCult teamed up again with producer Jochem Jacobs, SplitSecondSound Studios, who mixed and mastered this ambitious new album. Guitarist Tomas co-produced the album with Jochem. “Tomas has a great overview and knows how we want to sound, so it was obvious that he should be involved in producing this album,” says Spit. “And working with Jochem again was great. We had such a good vibe working together on Synoré that it was an easy decision to ask him to work with us on this album.”
Jochem already had a great feeling about Insua EnVenom in the early stages of mixing: “It's not even finished yet, but I already know that the new MagnaCult is gonna be KILLER!! The new songs are all great and this will definitely blow everyone away!”
Insua EnVenom is released on their own label, Synoré Records – named after their debut album. “It’s a tough time to be in the music industry, and this seemed the best choice we could make,” says D. “By starting our own label, we’re keeping everything within the band. The five of us, and our crew, are ready to work hard to get this band on the road and share our music around the world.”
The striking cover art for Insua EnVenom is made by artist Bob Martens, a good friend of the band. It’s based on the comic version of the Dark Tower series by Stephen King. “I'm a big fan of his work,” says D. “The dark side, the other world speaks to me. What comes forward very strong is the journey we’re making with the band, on a path to achieve our higher goals, with all the losses and setbacks we have overcome. The cover represents our journey: The unity, the dark side and the infinite.”
