“This song deals with all the choices we make but that kills us slowly. Being overconnected but the same way, far from the reality, makes us live in a fake world. “Blindness” deals with its fake reality of life through social media, and the importance people give to it, so involved in this “mental prison”. When we’re on the web, we see the world through our screen, thinking we can understand everything, but it\’s like watching another world, where reality is polished and transformed.”
For fans of While She Sleeps, As I Lay Dying and Architects their music and stage presence delivers a wide range of metalcore ethos that make them the frontrunners of the new metal scene. The band have appeared at various festivals across Europe, smashing stages with the likes of Shining, OTEP, Decapitated, Napoleon, No Return, Smash it Combo, Atlantis chronicles, and FRCTRD. They closed their first chapter by playing at Hellfest 2019 and since then the band has been dedicated to songwriting, recording, and producing their new album Illusional Gates.
“Blindness” was written by Insolvency. The music video was directed by Brice Hinker (Smash Hit Combo), mixed by Jim Pinder (Treehouse Studio UK), and mastered by Tyler Smyth.
Insolvency’s “Blindness” is out November 19, 2021, with a full length to follow in the coming months.

Insolvency is a Metalcore band that can pick and choose from different styles and genres to create a sound uniquely their own. The band have appeared at various festivals across Europe, smashing stages with the likes of Shining, OTEP, Decapitated, Napoleon, No Return, Smash it Combo, Atlantis chronicles, FRCTRD. In 2015, guitarist Bruno Blackstard was selected to play alongside Children of Bodom maestro Alexi Laiho in Helsinki during the 100guitarsfromhel Festival.
After a self released EP, the band hit the studio to record their debut album “Antagonism Of The Soul” in the UK with Jim Pinder and Carl Bown (Bullet For My Valentine, While She Sleeps, Machine Head). The result is a whirlwind of Blackstard & Valentin Gondouin’s elastic guitar work, soaring melodies and drummer Mickaël Tamario’s frantic assault; all pinned together by the double vocal barrage of Gondouin & bassist Pierre Challouet.
Insolvency first started to garner media attention with their music video “Antagonism Of the Soul” which exclusively premiered with Metal Hammer. This track was featured also on Metal Hammer’s Sound Of Metal Compilation of April 2018. The band started 2018 with a French tour followed by gigs in Poland, Belgium and a UK Tour. They closed their first chapter by playing at Hellfest 2019 and since then the band has been dedicated to songwriting, recording, and producing their new album Illusional Gates. During the process, the band welcomed Prosper Duffours as their new drummer
