FRACTURED INSANITY was formed by Kenny (guitars) and Ignace (drums) in April 2004. They had the desire to create brutal Death Metal in the vein of acts such as Suffocation, Pyeamia, Disavowed and Decapitated. In September of that year, Didier joined the band on bass guitar and the first songs were written which eventually ended on the band’s first demo-CD, “The Ethics of Nihility”. The line-up was completed in May 2005 when Rob took on the job as vocalist and joined the ranks.
With this line-up, the first gigs were done and in January 2006, FRACTURED INSANITY entered the ShumCot Studio under the guidance of ReinieR Schenk for the recordings of their demo-CD, “The Ethics of Nihility”. Previous bands that entered the ShumCot Studio were Demonizer, Fleshmould... The entire demo was recorded in only two days and the mastering took place at the CCR Studio where bands like Aborted, In-Quest,... recorded their work. The band promoted their demo on various live-shows supporting bands like Ophialatry, Caducity, Emeth, Suhrim, Textures, Leptotrichia...
In October 2006 the band re-entered the ShumCot Studio to record their debut full-length album called “When Mankind Becomes Diseased”. This time, the entire process was completed within 5 months. The album contained four re-recorded tracks of the demo-CD + 4 brand new songs of utter brutality. ReinieR took on the recording and the mixing. The disk then got its final touch at the Hertz Studio in Poland where the mastering took place. Bands like Hate, Decapitated, Behemoth... went to the Hertz studio before for recording their work. After the recording, many promo discs were sent to various labels which resulted with the signing with one of the leading underground labels, Goregiastic Records.
FRACTURED INSANITY promoted this album with shows supporting bands like Cirith Gorgor, Caedere, Cephalic Carnage, Prejudice, Benighted, Cryptopsy, Decrepit birth, Angelcorpse, Kronos, Goryptic... not only in Belgium but also in Germany, the Netherlands, France... In April 2008, the talented Dieter Daems joined the ranks as the new second guitar player followed by Cid Jimenez in December whom is blessed with a brutal vocal approach as our new singer replacing Rob Polon who left the band.
After supporting Svart Crown and Disdained for a small Euro-tour the band came back and finished writing the last tracks for the upcoming album “Mass Awakeless”. During that time, Cid decided to leave the band and a new replacement on vocals was found in the person of Bert “Fafa” Geuns, also active in the band Bloodwraith. With this new line up ready to roll, the band went in April 2010 to the infamous Hertz Studios in Bialystok Poland to record the new album. Set for release on the 1st of August 2010 on Xtreem Music (owner is nobody else the Dave Rotten from Avulsed) the new album exceeded the bands expectations on every level.
To promote the new album the band shall support bands like Cattle Decapitation, Gorod, Trigger the Bloodshed, Welkin... and in October they will join Avulsed for a UK tour covering cities like London, Liverpool, Nottingham... The future looks good for the band and finally after years of hard work, the train finally starts to ride slowly.
