Insanity made a welcome return to the Comms on 24th October and drew a decent crowd to see their show. Kicking off with Sabbath's 'Children of the grave' they kept up a steady momentum of tracks that you know, but don't often hear played live on the circuit, as well as a few classic tracks that had the Herd singing along. Billy on bass, fronted on a couple of tracks from Metallica and Motorhead and the band knocled out tunes from The Black Crowes, Dio, Whitesnake, Ozzy, QOTSA and AC/DC. Great show, smashing bunch of lads, a pleasure to work with.

Next Show:
