Insek played their first live show on 1 April 2005. It originally started as some rough ideas and songs that Christo Bester (Bass/Vox) assembled after the split of his previous band – South African grinders – Groinchurn in 2001.
Insek aims to add a new, original flavor to South African music , specifically the Afrikaans speaking market , as a majority of the songs have Afrikaans lyrics.
Insek is : Christo Bester (Bass/Vox) Ewald van Vuuren (Guitar/Vox) Emile Hoogenhout (Drums)

The music style is grindcore and a range of other interesting influences like metal and punk , with a distinct South African flavour – they would like to call the style the “skrop” (The Afrikaans term “skrop” refers to chickens looking for food with their feet or a vigorous cleaning) Topics that are dealt with lyrically, ranges from religion , sex , race and other general philosophical issues.

They have released one album to date – “Maaiers” which was nominated for best alternative album in 2008 for the South African Music Awards. Insek het hul eerste lewendige vertoning gelewer op 1 April 2005. Dit het oorspronklik begin as idees en liedjies wat Christo Bester ( Bass/Vox) geskryf het na die vorige groep wat hy in gespeel het – Groinchurn – opgebreek het in 2001. Insek is : Christo Bester (Bass/Vox) Ewald van Vuuren (Guitar/Vox) Emile Hoogenhout (Drums)
Insek beoog om ‘n nuwe, oorpronklike geur by Suid Afrikaanse musiek te voeg , meer spesifiek Afrikaanse musiek , die meerderheid van liedjies het Afrikaanse lirieke .

Die musiek styl is “grindcore” (‘n musiekstyl hoog in tempo en energie) met verskeie andere intersante invloede soos metal en punk. Hulle beskryf hulle styl as die skrop. Liries word temas soos geloof , seks , ras en verskeie ander filosofiese temas aangevat. Die eerste album – “Maaiers” is genomineer vir beste alternatiew album in 2008 vir die Suid Afrikaans Musiek Toekennings. Doen die skrop.
