From the very beginning of “Insurrection” the artists of Haema pose a simple question, “What’s the point of your existence?” As the album comes in at just seventeen minutes I dove in head first to see what this UK Industrial band had to offer. I took in the ablum in a massive metal dose to see if I could answer that question.
“What’s the point of your existence?” /Haema/ – from the track “Eden”
Haema drops a short but hard hitting dime on the Industrial Metal scene in “Insurrection“. Taking an old sound and fast forwarding it to a more modern looking and sounding 2017. A short, hard hitting, industrial metal dose for those looking for a great blend of Rage Against the Machine with a Fear Factory injection!
Eden begins the track rundown with a solid delivery of vocals most industrial fans are accustomed to hearing. Keen ears will immediately begin to see the resemblances in tone and delivery to the Industrial Metal giants, Rage Against the Machine.

Free Man and Insurrection follow closely behine Eden and continue to remain true to their Industrial roots. The title track “Insurrection” veers a bit from a solidly built foundation in Eden and Free Man but again the artistry and self expression are undeniable. Fortunately we get right back where we left off in Thirte3n and Two Minds as we get served a substantial amount of Industrial metal in just a short 17 minutes.
