  • Bio
    Severnica is a 6-piece symphonic/melodic metal band from Turku, Finland. Long Lost Longing (2014) is our debut EP which was released digitally and physically as a CD through Bandcamp. It contains four songs composed by our keyboardist Teemu Tolmunen. All of the songs were recorded and mixed by us resulting in a very natural sound. The heavy guitar riffs are balanced out by the high, clear vocals of Maarit Nieminen while the grooving bass lines complete our unique sound. The poetic lyrics add to the mystique of the songs and convey stories of epic proportions. See More

    INSATIA and the KICK*ASS*METAL heavy metal hall of fame.
    As a life long fan of all thing rock and of all thing metal. I always try to pay attention to small details in the history of bands, especially bands that are bands that I consider KICK*ASS
    One band Severnica help out one of KICK*ASS*METAL’s all-time favorite bands of the current decade and of the 21st century. Insatia feautres World-Class Vocalist Zoe Federoff of Insatia fame, and the members gave a big helping hand and a huge break for Insatia, where Insatia got to be on the radio, which is a huge break for Insatia in my eyes.
    And for that fans of Insatia, (see there influence list….)  and Symphonic Melodic Metal, KICK*ASS*METAL want to thank Severnica for all its help of the American band Insatia who plays a European style of music, Insatia hails for  Arizona

    • Short Description
      INSATIA is a driving, melodic metal band with female vocals. Debut album available here!
    • Bio
      In the vein of melodic power metal bands with female vocals, INSATIA draws it’s inspirations from the great genre giants of Europe such as Nightwish and Epica.
      Insatia’s beginnings were in the mind of guitarist Jon “DUCK” Harris, who in Spring 2008 began a new project, Atomic Revolution. After numerous incarnations, the project was retitled Insatia and released a debut EP entitled “Left Behind” (2009) featuring vocalist Karri. Numerous lineup changes followed in an attempt to form a dependable team of committed musicians. It was not until 2012 that a stable lineup was achieved with Jon Harris joined by drummer Mike Jester and Vocalist Zoe Federoff. A debut album was released entitled “Asylum Denied” (2013) and a following across the globe arose in appreciation, praising the “ethereal” vocal work of Zoe and the masterful song writing of all musicians involved.
      In 2014 Jon Harris and Mike Jester resigned from Insatia for personal and scheduling reasons. Vocalist Zoe recruited guitarist Matt Hanna of LASTWATCH, and drummer Seth Booze to continue the band and take it in new directions. Additional musicians Matt Federoff and Jeremy Gypton were added for live shows. The first show with the new lineup was October 1st, 2014, in Mesa AZ opening for SONATA ARCTICA, DELAIN, and XANDRIA. Legendary producer and bassist for SERENITY Fabio D’Amore then announced his position as producer on Insatia’s upcoming sophomore album.The second album is well underway with an expected 2015 release. The first song from the new album, “Act of Mercy,” was debuted live on October 1st and the first single off the new album, “We Are The Grey,” will be released with an accompanying music video in early 2015.Homesite
