Insania is a Swedish power metal band from Stockholm , which was founded in 1992 by Mikko Korsbäck and Henrik Juhano. The band should not be confused with the German heavy metal band of the same name .
The band was founded in 1992 by Mikko Korsbäck and Henrik Juhano. Thomas Stolt (bass), Niklas Dahlin (guitar), Patrik Västilä (keyboards) and singer David Henriksson completed the line-up.

Several small tours followed, the biggest appearance was at a festival in the opening act of Manowar . In 2000, the second work Sunrise appeared in Riverland , in the opening act for Saxona little tour was done. David Henriksson decided to exit after the tour and was replaced by Ola Halén. Together with him, the album Fantasy – A New Dimension was released . In order to avoid confusion with the German and Czech bands of the same name, the band logo was given the addition “Stockholm”.
