Introspection Bio

Introspection logo

Introspection was founded in the summer of 2006 by Virgínio Gouveia, who proposed to revive a subdivision of the Death Metal genre that mainly focuses on more traditional death metal without ignoring more classical fusion thrash-death metal or even old school death metal, thus highlighting a thematic and philosophical sense that values a turn towards more technical compositions. As such, Introspection currently performs music that incorporates a perspective based on atypical metal, but without losing the traditionalism that characterized underground fusion thrash-death metal from the 80s and 90s. In terms of the issues addressed in the lyrics, Introspection highlights the critical values that conservatives throughout history have used as an instrument to instigate the suicide of humanity. Introspection means “insight” in the narrow sense of the word, suggesting an awareness of internal emotions through observation and reflection on one’s own internal workings as the subject itself. Thus, the individual is the subject of knowledge and the object of study in self-observation. From its genesis to the present day, the band has released three independent demos; “SUICIDAL PSYCHOLOGY” (2007), “THE BEAST WITH RETURN THE PEST (2008) and” DOMINATION OF DEATH “(2009/2010), and has participated in many underground Brazilian compilations and zines. Presently V. Gouveia, the main proponent of the ideas driving the music, is in the process of composing his latest artifact in order to support members invited to achieve the next album release from Introspection. The latest release, “Human Emancipation”, will be released in late 2013/early 2014. The new album has been written with the intention of satisfying true fans of the musical style, while preparing to reach an audience that is more distinct and prepared for the deep thematic and philosophical issues addressed by the band. It is true that membership of the album “Human Emancipation” is being held too hot for real connoisseurs of Death Metal and some unpublished factors contribute substantially to this. For the first time in the history of introspection the band had their work published in specialized journals in Latin American countries like Brazil itself, Peru, Bolivia and Chile, and likewise echoes the band in Europe, in countries such as Austria, Italy, Turkey Ocidental.Seguindo this same perspective, it is the first time the band releases its work in north American lands, through distributor Abominatrix. It has already been announced for early 2014 release of the original CDs, as well as the cd in tape format. Listen, criticize and publicize! Long life to Death Metal!
