Fae Moonbeam I won't lie -- I originally bought this just to keep up with my collection of Hiraeth vinyl releases, but this might be my favourite release since Hellveterra. Yes it's metal, but it retains an EDM breakbeat and feel to it. It's hard to set a favourite track. I seriously cannot recommend this enough!!!

EDIT: This album is genius: A potent reminder that the deepest rabbit hole is found within the labyrinthine passages of your own mind, and it can quickly become a prison of your own design... Favorite track: Fertile Soil.

LoYo_Fan As a fan of vaporwave, FF, vapor ambient, metal, and industrial; this album was a nice surprise. On top of that, the album is much better than expected! Favorite track: Endorfin.

nthng_bt_gltch Beautiful, fierceful, super addictive piece of darkness! I couldn't help myself but buy this album, and if it was re-released on CD's i'd it once again, and maybe even multiple times!

Great blend of industrial metal and electronic, powerful and yet it feels vaporwavey enough. Blast beats and crunchy guitar riffs smashing my ears, and sharp electronic are tearing my whole head to shreds like a bunch of knifes, fiercefuly.

Ouch, but I LUV IT! Favorite track: From Better to Worst.

After being in production for almost five years, the debut album “Unrecoverable Reality” by Insanity Check sees the light of day. On this album Insanity Check takes you back to a mix of an alternative Command & Conquer Red Alert soundtrack mixed with underground Finnish beats and metal. But be aware, this record is not for everybody…

Besides music, the album delivers a strong message:
”The story on the album is about the darkest time in my life. It was when my mental health started deteriorating really bad, and I became a serious hazard to myself. The point of the project is to highlight mental issues, and encourage people to seek help. It’s never too late!”

Insanity Check is a project by Topias Svärd from Turku, Finland. Svärd is also known as ‘DJ Backstabber’ for his “Beats by the Dead” tape with ‘Shangó 404’ and as ‘8-Bitape’ for his two tapes (“8-Bitape” and “8-Breeder”). These 8-Bitape tapes have been baptized as chiphop by Scandinavian underground chiptune makers.
