The mighty Squealer from Germany is certainly the definition of perseverance, experiencing the passing of not one but two lead vocalists in the past. But future is now, and even in this pandemic year of 2020, Squealer has unveiled the appropriately titled Insanity, and the metal anthems found within present a band at the very height of their creative prowess.

The thrash attack begins at once with the ferocious refrains of Into Flames, followed immediately by the fist pumping exhilaration of the almighty Salvation. Then it’s time for a twist of Bad Tasting Sin dramatically smashing into the heart of the matter. Low Flying Brains is another mind-blowing highlight, showing just how imaginative and compelling the Squealer experience can be.

The heavy metal anthems continue into sonic overdrive, with tunes such as Hunter Of Myself, Power Of Bliss, and the glorious title track raging into your head with fiendish glee. And definitely listen on to the grand and glorious finale of the absorbing Black Rain, featuring all-star guest appearances from Bernhard Weiss (Axxis) and Zak Stevens (Circle II Circle, Savatage, TSO) on vocals, and Roland Grapow (Masterplan, ex-Helloween) on lead guitar.

Squealer 2020 features massive performances courtesy of Lars Döring (guitars), Michael Schiel (guitars), Sebastian Werner (vocals), Manuel Roth (bass) and Peter Schäfer on drums. With an album as thrilling as Insanity, it won’t be long until Squealer breaks out the auditory madness all over the world at long last! Available December 4th via Pride & Joy Music!
