InSammer is one of Sweden's most promising metal bands, combining dark, pulsating Nordic grooves with Eastern European lyricism and melodic romanticism. Their live shows throb with emotional energy; Vika Dola's voice ranges from a whisper to a full-throated growl, melding with the instruments as verses explode into churning, hypnotic choruses and pounding, crowd-mesmerizing riffs. The group calls their sound transfusion metal, a heavy mixture of alternative rock and nu metal, which evokes the shifting musical styles and feelings that pour over them and infuse their performances.
The band was created in Stockholm by Viktorija Dola and guitarist Dennis Wise, whose collaboration began at a music institute in Uppsala, Sweden in 2011. The name InSammer was inspired by The Door Into Summer, a science fiction novel by Robert Heinlein. InSammer has performed throughout Sweden, at the Metal Christmas Festival in Bucharest, and in other European countries. In October 2017, they recorded seven new tracks for an EP with a producer Valery Stone. The current lineup also features virtuoso guitarist Oleg Izotov, bassist Nikita Simonov, and drummer Teodor Alexuta ("Todor Punch").
In December 2017, the band signed with Para Music Group, an affiliate of Sony Music Entertainment, and traveled to Gothenburg, Sweden to shoot a video for their new song The System. It was the first of two videos directed by Patric Ullaeus, who has made videos for In Flames, Arch Enemy, Amaranthe, and many other top international acts.
InSammer's new EP Seeds is scheduled for release in March 2018 in New York, and will be distributed by Sony Music / The Orchard.
