    Blending calculated technicality to create a signature mixture of merciless death metal that has emerged from the prominent Canadian scene. INSURRECTION has been growing, modulating and mutating into a machine of an aural onslaught since their conception in 2003 by founding members Martin Samson and Stef Jomphe.

    Vocalist Stef Jomphe comments:

    "We're really proud to finally bring Prototype to the masses. It represents the next step for Insurrection, trying out different ways to present our own sound, exploring different angles and methods! This is the result of several years of hard work along with amazing support from our fans and friends whom without, none of this would've been possible! Enjoy Prototype, you made it happen!"

    “Insurrection play a groovy type of death metal that’s equal parts Dying Fetus, Decapitated and Lamb of God.”  - Metal Sucks 

    Death metal needs fresh blood and let’s hope this album inspires some youngsters to steer away from the crap and come back to serious business.” – Metal Made in Canada

     “This 5-piece monstrosity has struck again with precision, aggression and near perfection! INSURRECTION delivers a one of a kind album – solid and crushing from beginning to end.” – The Ottawa Epitaph

    Fracture is mint, tight and completely in your face. With well thought out lyrics, great aggressive riffs and a constant energy that hooks you to its sound; it’s a must for any tech death fan. It’s their second effort, and a solid follow up to Prologue, their first album. The lyrics, in both English and French, circles around the themes of society, politics and mental illness. Their vocalist, Stephane Jomphe, does a great job at throwing them at us like bullets and he’s also an incredible live performer. If you get the chance to see them live, jump on it. A good way to get in touch with this piece of art is by listening to its highlights. You better start off with ”Set The World On Fire” a catchy yet brutal (don’t bash me for using this term) song about human rebellion against our capitalist system, well written with a sing along chorus and a heavy sound, in short, a perfect starter. Then there’s ”Dérangé” which can be translated to disturbed or insane. This is surely one of my favorite, a French track about narcotic problems and sanity. Personally I also enjoy ”Fracture”, their title track, and ”History Repeats Itself”…If you’re the metal enthusiast craving heavy and vicious crushing riffs, or the typical technical death metal fan looking for some new stuff to enjoy. Stop searching, you’ve found what you need and believe me you’ll enjoy this album..” – Metal Storm

    “One of the things that attracted me to this band was their use of both local languages in their songs. I know it’s easier to write songs in english, and english bands seem to get more popular than french bands, but I feel like a lot of bands don’t even try. Half the songs on Prologue are in french, and half are in english, and it does nothing but improve the record. Hats off to these dudes for writing in their native tongue.” – Bloody Underated

    The wait is finally over and MALEVOLENCE fans can rejoice onward as the band have decided to sign with the American label CARBON MEDIEN after a very hefty period of dialogue and negotiation. CARBON MEDIEN feels extremely proud of this achievement and the third release for the band, will mark the very first for the label. Says CEO Derek Silver, “I have been a fan of MALEVOLENCE since day one and back in 2003 I even had the opportunity to meet Carlos personally in the USA and since then we have been in touch. From the very first time I heard their promotional work CELEBRATION OF DYSFUNCTIONAL BECOMING that I knew in advance that they were going to publish the best material since their inception. ANTITHETICAL took a while, but for the better, as this album will be reckoned as one of the greatest metal albums of all time coming out of the Portuguese territory! We, at CARBON MEDIEN are looking for a strong cooperation on all levels and we hope our love and dedication to the band will garner them even more recognition than the one they already posses out here. ANTITHETICAL is a great opportunity for people to discover great music”. ANTITHETICAL marks the third album by the Portuguese act and it will be available globally from November, 22nd 2013 throughout the alliance of CARBON MEDIEN to one of the largest distributors in the world associated with INTERSCOPE RECORDS/UMG. ANTITHETICAL will be available in hundreds of online stores, mobile services and streaming companies all over the globe. To mark the occasion a third single from ANTITHETICAL will be released during the next weeks.

    EP Stream - http://allelsefails.bandcamp.com/album/fucktropolis 

    About: Coming out of Edmonton Alberta Canada, All Else Fails is making a mark around the world for their aggressively dark brand of metal that is breaking the traditional ideals of their genre. Drawing comparisons to bands like As I Lay Dying, the band infuses their music with a variety of elements that includes experimental, Classical, synth lines, and spoken word sampling to accent a unique blend of heavy as hell screams and shiver inducing clean vocals.

    A high energy live show that sets them apart from their peers has garnered them appearances on numerous high level festivals over the years, including Van’s Warped tour, Boonstock and opening spots for artists like Protest the Hero, Cancer Bats, Dayglo Abortions, 3 Inches of Blood, Fear Factory, Threat Signal, Decapitated, Suffocation, and Arise & Ruin.

    The band’s last release received world wide praise from industry publications around the world. With the release of the band’s most recent music video “This Burden of Life” in the fall of 2012, and its addition to rotation on Canada’s Much Music, All Else Fails’ fan base expanded dramatically.

    July 30th 2013 marks the date of their heaviest and most diverse release to date, “Fucktropolis”. Heavy with a dark beauty, this highly anticipated 5 track EP, the band’s 4th release will solidly place All Else Fails amongst the best in their genre.
