We are fast approaching a day we’ve been hoping would come — the June 24 release of a debut album by the Italian death metal band Instigate. Their first release, a 2020 EP named Echoes of A Dying World, elicited praise at our site from both myself (here) and Andy Synn (here), with comparative references being dropped to the likes of Misery Index, Suffocation, Dyscarnate, Hour of Penance, and Hideous Divinity. And we weren’t alone in our praise — that EP triggered lots of positive reactions across the metalverse.
So we’ve been both eager and curious to find out what Instigate might do on a first full-length. Now we’re getting our answers, and you’re getting them too, thanks to the debut of two singles already (“Witness of the End Times” and “Haruspex“) and a third one we’re bringing you today — “Indoctrinated Reborn” — which is paired with an electrifying video made by Maurizio del Piccolo (Movidel Production).
