Insatia

    INSATIA is a driving, melodic, gothic metal band with female vocals- Hailing from Canada and the US. INSATIA's beginnings were in the mind of guitarist Jon "DUCK" Harris, who in Spring 2008 began a new project, Atomic Revolution. Atomic Revolution was the formalization of a solo project DUCK had begun years earlier, where he had written, recorded, and mixed a variety of songs but had never found a singer to properly tackle them.

    INSATIA is a driving, melodic, gothic metal band with female vocals- Hailing from Canada and the US. INSATIA's beginnings were in the mind of guitarist Jon "DUCK" Harris, who in Spring 2008 began a new project, Atomic Revolution. Atomic Revolution was the formalization of a solo project DUCK had begun years earlier, where he had written, recorded, and mixed a variety of songs but had never found a singer to properly tackle them. Collaborating with another guitar player, also named Jon, DUCK faced the hardships of getting the project to take off and truly thrive. After going through two singers, major changes were made in approach and TORMENT became the latest incarnation of DUCK's vision. Further lineup additions were made- Brenton became the drummer after a chance meeting at a Nightwish concert, and auditions were held to find a vocalist. Karri came on board for vocals, and an EP was released entitled "Left Behind." After noting how many other projects were using the name "TORMENT," DUCK changed the name one last time. A final phoenix arose- INSATIA, the insatiable desire.

    In Summer 2009, a bass player was added named Conrad and the EP was vigorously marketed to the metal community via Myspace and other online presences. Magazines, radio stations, and interviewers helped promote the demo, and work on the debut album commenced. Further lineup changes occurred as the chemistry of the band evolved- Karri was replaced by a new vocalist, Chelsea, and the drums were taken over by a talented young drummer, Jester. In Autumn of 2010 Jester wrote and recorded the drums for the album as Chelsea began her work on vocals. Unfortunately, she was forced to relocate 9 months later and INSATIA was once again stalled without a singer. DUCK and Jester decided to take INSATIA down to the bare basics, and since there was no need to play live shows at the time, they decided to postpone incorporating Jon and Conrad back into the band until a future point when they would be necessary.

    DUCK and Jester continued working on the debut album, Asylum Denied, which became a fitting name as the album seemed to be a constant struggle without rest or relief. A year and a half passed before Jester discovered a young singer with a youthful soprano voice and the tenacity to fit into INSATIA's band chemistry. After being invited to audition, Zoë was welcomed on board by DUCK and Jester. She spent the first year working and re-working the vocal parts to the album, writing melodies and lyrics, and sharing her ideas with DUCK and Jester until they reached a satisfactory "feeling" on the album. Once the vocal writing was complete, Zoë began recording in Winter of 2012. DUCK at this point had relocated to Canada, but kept his finger on the pulse of Zoë's progress. With input from Jester, the album vocals were finally recorded to the level that all the band members had wanted.
