EON Zero (1989-1997)
insania started in 1989, in Milan (italy) when two bands ,Res (heavy/speed metal) and Incubo (hardcore/grind) merged into a new creature.
the very first line up was made of 5:
- Davide = vocals (Res)
- Piero = guitar (Res)
- Salvatore = bass+vocals (Incubo)
- Ema = guitar (Incubo)
- Max = drums (Res)
but very soon, the sound became harder and Salvatore became the only vocalist. As a 4 piece combo we released a demo (Demone, 1990) and two live reharsal. After a while Ema left, and then Max left in search of something more melodic (at now he plays with Holy Shire).
Around the end of 1992/beginning of 1993 Sig (Luca Sigfrido Percich) joined and insania released "genesi" (demo-tape, 1994) as a 3 combo:
Piero = guitar
Salvatore = bass+vocals
Sig = drums
insania was a live band, we played live as much as possible our thrash(core), despite of no-budget gigs and no-soundcheck stages... playing live all the “genesi” tracklist we won the Rescaldina Rock Contest in 1995 (death-thrash act 1st classified among rock, dark wave, and punk rock combos: that was great) and 2nd classified in Saronno Famosi contest.
in the 1997 the adventure ended because of... who knows? maybe diffrerent levels of rage and dedication.
EON Zero.1 (2008-2011)
insania.11 is a studio project, re-built in 2008 by Samaang (Salvatore) 11 years after the original Insania split up.
he took his time and wrote something like 13 songs to offer the old partners.
choosing the best ones among these songs in 2010 Samaang released "I diari di Samaang (Numero zero) L'ostato larvale (Il prototipo del caos)" in 23 physical copies.
all the work was done in home recording, so that Samaang named his own laptop "inferno.99" that is our (indie) Label and mobile studio.
"I diari di Samaang (Numero zero) L'ostato larvale (Il prototipo del caos)" was a "call to arms" directed to the formers members of Insania.
did it work?
EON 1.1 (2011-2014)
in a sense it did. Samaang (=salvatore) and .Ethrum (= piero) started a race in writing down and arranging guitar riffs, someone from older Samaangs's scketches, others totally new.
so we undestood that rage and dedication grew up in those 11 years of silence.
Sigfrido helped a lot, even if some struggle about the riffing's odd/uneven metrics happened.
And the most he displayed a different approach to the studio project .
EON .11 (2015-now)
that's the point because at now insania.11 is a two people combo.
Samaang and .Ethrum started the recording of "di sangue e di luce" in september 2015 in homerecording, re-composing and re-arranging 4 songs played with Sig in reharsal sessions (70% of drums patterns are due to him) + a total new song (=B nAural).
This is a newer “call to arms”: we miss the stage-destroying era. So: step forward.
