Power Metal 101: get fast galloping riffs and drums powered by the Duracell bunny themselves and soaring vocals so high that it can only be heard by dogs at times. This is then coupled with lyrics about tits or dragons or something. This is what it must appear to be to the uninitiated, however, dig beneath this stereotype and the listener will find a plethora of enjoyable bands. One such band are Insania who are back for the first time since 2007 with their brand new studio album ‘V (Praeparatus Supervivet)’.

                A break of nearly 15 years can do a lot to a band and for Insania, what it seems to have done is iron out some creases and refocus a band into a unit that is ready to return and remind the heavy metal world what they’re capable of. It is true, what the listener gets here are galloping riffs and drums, tracks such as ‘Praeparatus Supervivet’, ‘Moonlight Shadows’ and ‘Power of the Dragonborn’ drive with all the power of ‘Keeper of the Seven Keys’ era Helloween and would also massively appeal to fans of Gamma Ray, Stratovarius and Rhapsody. Furthermore, the track ‘Prometheus Rise’ may be one of the best songs that Insania have ever put to the record.

                Instead of dipping their toe in, Insania have taken the full plunge with ‘V…’ and there are few points in the album which aren’t exactly great, nor are they rubbish either and when this album clocks in at over an hour, it can be a little taxing. But for Insania to return in this form is both exciting and enjoyable and power metal fans should definitely grab a copy.
