February 17th will see the release of “Recollections Of The Insane“, the highly anticipated debut album by Belgium’s up and coming Deathrashers SCHIZOPHRENIA. Featuring nine blistering tracks spanning over 43 minutes, the band’s first full-length is a relentless and highly energetic cocktail, blending the finest ingredients from the worlds of Death Metal and Thrash. Morbid Angel, Demolition Hammer, Slayer, early Sepultura, Dissection, Death, At The Gates, Obituary, Bolt Thrower, Pestilence…if any of these bands already gets you going, then imagine the best mixture of all of them combined with SCHIZOPHRENIA’s unique and fresh interpretation of Extreme Metal! In support of their upcoming album, the four-piece from Antwerp has released a brand new video clip for the track “Divine Immolation”.

Ricky Mandozzi (vocals & bass) comments:

It’s finally time to release the opening track of the album with a brand new video and yes, that’s a real burning man! The song tells a story of someone setting himself on fire so we wanted to represent this in the best possible way. It’s been really exciting to work with real fire and a stuntman who helped us to achieve this strong visuals, I hope our fans will enjoy this burning hot video clip!” 

Guitarist Romeo Promos Promopoulos on “Divine Immolation”:

This is one of the first songs where we started to incorporate the melodic side of Schizophrenia. With voices we rather suppressed that side. On Recollections of the Insane we wrote songs with elements we truly crave inside of us, and can’t ignore any longer. This just happens to be the perfect blend between melody and heaviness. Divine Immolation starts off slow and epic, but then drags you down to the darkest pits of lunacy. Do not mistake this for a breather in the first seconds. You’ll be surprised!


Recollections Of The Insane” drops this Thursday as an independent, DIY-release by SCHIZOPHRENIA, offering the perfect reflection of a band that is not afraid to take the harsh route. Despite various offers from worldwide, renowned record labels, it seems to be the right way for SCHIZOPHRENIA at this current moment and therefore offers the opportunity to present the most authentic version of themselves.

Furthermore, the band has not only released a new music video, but also the matching playthrough videos. Get into the full SCHIZOPHRENIA madness and watch the playthroughs below!

Recollections Of The Insane” was produced by Francesco Paoli of Fleshgod Apocalypse and mixed/mastered at Y-PRODUCTION by Yarne Heylen and is available to purchase at THIS LOCATION

Romeo Promos Promopoulos (Guitar):
Divine immolation is a good blend between melody and heavy riffing, starting off slow and epic but then dragging you to the darkest depths of lunacy.”

Marty Van Kerckhoven (Guitar):
The guitar playthrough of Divine Immolation – recorded at Project Zero Studio – offers a unique chance to directly get a closer look at the riffs and composition. It showcases a more intimate view of the identity of the song and the way the harmonies and solos are divided between Romeo and myself. In addition the playthrough shows how the diverse stylistic influences and different intricacies spread throughout the song. I was very pleased we decided to do a playthrough of Divine Immolation, since it’s definitely one of those songs that get me pumped up to play. I’ll always remember the melody of the chorus being stuck in my head for over a week after recording the playthrough.

Lorenzo Vissol (Drums):
Burning at 230 bpms, Divine Immolation is one of the fast tracks in the album. As such it allowed to integrate the technicity of Death Metal drumming to a rather Thrash Metal song. Opening up with a blast beat, it features lots of fast double bass and tricky fast rolls jumping from cymbals to toms and snare. The middle section however, leaves space for some air before bouncing back full force. When composing the drums my main focus was to serve the music and leave space for the vocal line without ever overshowing the other instruments! Hope everyone will enjoy the song as much as the song is fun to play.
