Vomitory was formed in 1989 by guitarist Urban Gustafsson during the birth of the globally well-known Brutal Swedish Death Metal scene. Ever since, they have constantly and brutally delivered straightforward grinding Death Metal. While being a part of the phenomenon that was the Swedish Death Metal scene, the early and most important influences were spelled Sodom, Slayer, Entombed, Bolt Thrower, Napalm Death, Grave and Carcass.
Insatanity was formed during the summer of 1992, when fellow area musicians united to create one of the most original, brutal and atmospheric bands in the metal genre to date. The band immediately began writing material for their self-titled debut demo. This brutal four-song offering was released in February of 1993, and it established Insatanity as one of the most intense metal bands in the Philadelphia area.
The band continued writing material and playing local shows,building a following of supporters. In October of 1993, Insatanity re-entered the studio to record their second demo, Ad Maiorem Satanae Gloriam, also a four-song release, which clearly demonstrated the band's musical progression and redefined technical proficiency and musicianship in their local metal scene. The demo sold incredibly well after its release, and was received tremendously well by fans and fanzines worldwide.
Insatanity released their third demo in June of 1995, a four song release entitled Unholiness Rising, clearly the heaviest underground recording ever to emerge from the Philadelphia area. In September of 1995, just three months after the release of their incredibly successful Unholiness Rising demo, Insatanity was signed to Unisound International Records, a popular black metal label in Athens, Greece. Their debut full-length album, Divine Decomposition, was released on compact disc by Unisound Records on January 30th, 1996.
Insatanity parted ways with Unisound Records shortly after the release of Divine Decomposition. In July of 1997, Insatanity released their second cd offering through Mortal Coil Records, Vengeance From Beyond The Grave, a Split CD with the brutal metal band Immortal Suffering.The split was a very anticipated release in the underground metal scene, and had sold well and received much critical acclaim.
During the next few years, Insatanity went through a few minor sent backs. Several members left the band putting the band into hiatus. A long and through search was done to bring the band back into action, but even after finding replacements none were suitable. It wasn't until 2001, when two main members came back into the band did Insatanity begin to mold into what it once was. Insatanity began playing shows again through out the next couple to years, but still plagued with line-up changes was not able to begin writing any new material.
Finally in the beginning of 2005, Insatanity was able to create a stable line-up. They entered the studio and recorded a four song EP entitled, "The Black Stone", which they released on thier own. This release was long over due and got much praise. Insatanity then headed out on a US tour, where they were well recieved. Six months later, Insatanity began to prepare for their upcoming release, "The Day God Died".
While Insatanity was in the studio recording"The Day God Died", Insatanity released a compilation containing songs from the three previous recordings and two from other compilations entitled, "Sheol". Prior to a release of"The Day God Died", Insatanity embarked on a North American tour with Manias and Zircon.
Shortly after Insatanity returned from the road, they returned to the studio to add to the recording of "Day". Unfortunitely, they had a loss their drummer while before the recording was finished and sought a replacement to finish and re-record the previous tracks.
