German metalcore band Rising Insane are back with their new record ‘Porcelain’ to deliver more of the post-hardcore influenced rage that we heard on ‘Nation’ back in 2017. The haunting, melancholic tones compliment the aggressive nature that the band bring to their modern brand of metal.
To celebrate the new record, we caught up with the band and got them to pick five records that have inspired Rising Insane.
ARCHITECTS – ‘ALL OUR GODS HAVE ABANDONED US’
Because of the connection of power and harmony. There is not band in my opinion, which connects these components so fluently, than Architects. Even the lyrics are pure gold.
METALLICA – ‘MASTER OF PUPPETS’
This was probably one of the records that brought me straight into metal. The energy on this record is unbelievable, especially when you think of the age when it was produced. It is still one of my favourites.
AS I LAY DYING – ‘SHADOWS ARE SECURITY’
As I Lay Dying was the band, that opened my passion for screams and breakdowns. The combination of single note riffs followed by thundering breakdowns gives me still goosebumps.
ARCHITECTS – ‘HOLY HELL’
The band faced the same loss that I did, so it is no surprise that their latest release speaks right to my heart. The power that they deliver gives me strength and influences me a lot in my way to deal with the loss of my sister.
MIKE SHINODA – ‘POST TRAUMATIC’
Mike Shinoda delivers a different kind of grief than Architects, kind of more frustrated, like he is hating on his faith. I figured out for myself that this hate is, sometimes, an accurate option and I liked to work with this style when I was writing lyrics and vocals.
Rising Insane‘s new album, ‘Porcelain’, is out on November 1st through Long Branch Records.
