Insentient is a female fronted blackened death metal band formed in 2009 by guitarist/vocalist Leslie Medina, who is now joined by Kimberly Orellano on guitars, and James Coppolino on drums. The band looks to unleash its assault on the metal masses with its unique metal stylings.
The style we have has drawn comparisons to bands like Death, Dissection, Hypocrisy, and Necrophobic, to name a few. Expect to hear some melodic guitar riffs, guttural vocals, intense blast beats, with a touch of shred guitar.
"I was aware of the band’s music but seeing them live is kind of like, excuse the comparison, seeing Death again. Leslie Medina (guitar, vocals) is Chuck Schuldiner’s daughter, and I’m amazed that they didn’t choose her to be part of the Death to All tour. Regarding the band’s performance and music, their style is a super catchy technical death metal with emphasis on the riffs and the dynamics. Great chemistry between them, the bass is present all the time, Kimberly Orellana complements Medina on the guitars with a great smile and impressive guitar skills while James Coppolino’s drums were begging for mercy.

"Hadn't heard Insentient before, ... but was surprisingly impressed when I caught the last couple of songs of their set. ...t I will be making the effort to see them again in future. Musically a little reminiscent of Antaeus at times, and the vocals reminded me of Melissa from Adorior. Both great qualities to have!"
"The band that first caught my ear was Insentient, ...The guitarist, a young girl, was noticeably very good with excellent riffs and a deep roar that belied her waif-like appearance. "
