New York, NY (Top40 Charts)
power metal group INSATIA has released the second single, "We Are The Grey," off of their upcoming album, Phoenix
Aflame, due out June 23, 2017 via Pitch Black
Records. Originally premiered on Metal Underground, "We Are The Grey" and Phoenix
Aflame are available to pre-order now.
Vocalist Zoë Federoff comments that the new track "was actually the first song we had written for this album - originally I had constructed it to be a ballad, but as we started working on it, it became more straight up power metal. I don't like discussing my lyrics in too much depth with certain songs, because it's fun to see people apply their own meanings to them. This is definitely one of those songs."

Aflame. Joined by producer Staffan Karlsson, known for his work with Arch Enemy, Firewind, Roxette, and many other notable acts, Fabio
and Ivan spent the first part of 2015 recording the album at St. Cecilia Studios in Tucson, Arizona, USA, with engineers Steven Lee Tracy and Robbie Williamson. The album's production then went to Artesonika Studios, Fabio
and Ivan's home base, in Perdenone, Italy. In mid 2015 Insatia's lineup was further enhanced by the addition of Dave Ablaze (Blackguard) on bass, as album production continued overseas. Kaelen Sarakinis and Daniel
Millan were added on guitars and drums in 2016. Phoenix
