TCM 067 Insanity Alert – Life's Too Short For Longboards

by this charming man records



taken from the album "Moshburger"

The alpine 4-piece mows everything down: Crossover-Thrash like the good old days, with a big evil grin from ear to ear and a skate, party drenched humour (“Life’s Too Short For Longboards!”, “Disco Demolition”). The singer may remind me of Mike Muir from Suicidal Tendencies sometimes, yet Insanity Alert sounds way more metallic and are definitely faster! Brutal riffing, gang-shouts, effective moshparts, everything presented in a tight old-school sound which barely keeps me from opening a beer.

D.R.I., Municipal Waste, early Suicidal Tendencies, S.O.D., early Anthrax, Nuclear Assault ,Dr. Living Dead! – that’s where Insanity Alert gets the toxicated inspiration. Thrash Harder! It’s all about having a good time and a massive moshpit: Metal Punk at its best, that’s what these dudes from Innsbruck celebrate - and everyone wants to join the festivities.

The band is on the road a lot, and is a force to be reckoned with, so do yourself a favour and go check them out, you're gonna regret it: Shred Power to the Max!!

Insanity Alert's upcoming longplayer “Moshburger” was recorded and mixed by Andy Classen (ex-Holy Moses) at Stage One Studios and mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust). Out September 2016 via This Charmin Man Records.

Das Ösi-Quartett mäht alles nieder: Crossover-Thrash der alten Schule, immer mit einem Augenzwinkern und viel Spaß in den Backen und skateboardaffinem Humor („Life's Too Short for Longboards!“). Der Sänger erinnert mich manchmal an Mike Muir von den Suicidal Tendencies, allerdings klingen Insanity Alert deutlicher metallischer und sind vor allem viel schneller! Atemloses Geriffe, Gang Shouts, effektive Moshparts, alles vorgetragen in einem angenehm old schooligen Sound zwingen mich fast dazu, ein Bierchen aufzumachen. D.R.I., Municipal Waste, frühe Suicidal Tendencies, S.O.D., Dr. Living Dead!, frühe Anthrax, Nuclear Assault, das ist die Suppe, in die Insanity Alert reinspucken, und zwar richtig. Thrash Harder! Alles, worum es geht, ist eine gute Zeit und ein ordentlicher Pit: Metal Punk in Reinkultur, den die Innsbrucker hart abfeiern und alle damit mitreissen. Die wollen's echt wissen! Und sind auch viel unterwegs, sollte man sich live mal reinziehen: Shred Power to the max.
