Burn In Beautiful Fire AlbumPurchased

“First time I heard them, I wanted more.” These are the words of In Flames front man and Insense manager Anders Fridén, when talking about his exposure to Norwegian metal quartet Insense. “They have this amazing ability to sound extreme yet poised, dark yet beautiful, hardcore yet soft, technical yet simplistic, all without falling into the “pathetic”-trap. They are an extreme metal band that’s comfortable to listen to. They’re difficult to categorize that way.” He might just be on to the very essence of the Oslo-based four-piece. Created in 1999 by vocalist/guitarist Tommy Hjelm and guitarist Martin Rygge, and with the addition of drummer Truls Haugen and bassist Ola S Hana, the band steadily climbed the ranks in the Norwegian underground metal scene, one step at a time. Their schizophrenic mesh of death metal, thrash, grind core and hard core was an acquired taste for a somewhat conservative Norwegian metal community. “There really wasn’t a place for a band like us on the Norwegian scene”, recalls Hjelm. “You were either a black metal band or an Adidas sweats sporting Korn-wannabe. And if you were, you definitely didn’t like Insense. We fell between two stools.”
