INSANIA & THE ARISTOCRACY OF NEW OUTLAWS come from the Czech Republic and with "Trans-Mystic Anarchy" they present us their fifth or sixth album. I can recommend this only provisory for Metal fans but who can think of a mixture of BAD RELIGION melodies and mad WALTARI song fragments with much humour, will be right with this combo.
Songs like the jaunty, punky "The Lunar Priestess And The King Of Sun", the melancholic Good Night song "Behind The Sky" with its strange guitar passages, which sounds like orchestrated whale songs, the heavy rocking, with Ska-influences ennobled "Chaos! Fire! Heat! Storm! (Silence Is Death)", the song "Moribayassa", which is enriched with African drums, which makes SEPULTURA forgotten, or "Mother Theresa And Faust", which seems like NASTY SAVAGE meets the FEEBLES, makes a lot of fun.
The songs are altogether very catchy but they aren't no easy listening mainstream shit, though. So, it's right! (Online January 08, 2003)
