“Vampires” by INSAMMER, is out now and available for streaming and downloading on all major platforms. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming third full-length album, due in November 2021.
Directed by famous Turkish director Can Katipzade, the clip features frontwoman Vika in the role of a super-agent on a mission somewhere around the drug dealer’s mafia (starring all band members).
Vika says: “‘Vampires’ is a very strong but yet very passionate track. Throughout the pandemic, me and Dennis were writing a lot of dark, philosophic meaning songs. We tried to write openly about the ups and downs of our lives. All of us are living in a world of illusions and lies, we betray and kill each other just to get a wealthy life. ‘Vampires’ is not a single about medieval horror blood stories but about everyday life with all the sh*t we face on TV, Internet, magazines. Powerful riffs, heavy guitars and head crashing drums.”
INSAMMER is one of Sweden’s most promising metal bands, combining dark, pulsating Nordic grooves with Eastern European lyricism and melodic romanticism. Their live shows throb with emotional energy; Vika’s voice ranges from a whisper to a full-throated growl, melding with the instruments as verses explode into churning, hypnotic choruses and pounding, crowd-mesmerizing riffs. The group calls their sound transfusion metal, a heavy mixture of alternative rock and nu metal, which evokes the shifting musical styles and feelings that pour over them and infuse their performances.
The band was created in Stockholm by vocalist Vika and guitarist Dennis Wise, whose collaboration began at a music institute in Uppsala, Sweden. The name InSammer was inspired by The Door Into Summer, a science fiction novel by Robert Heinlein. The current lineup also features virtuoso guitarist Oleg Izotov, bassist Nikita Simonov, and world-class drummer Alex Karpukhin.
