unnamed (37)

Finland’s foremost melodic deathsters INSOMNIUM have begun recording their 8thstudio album, as drums are being nailed at SF Studio with engineer Kimmo Perkkiö. Afterwards the work shall continue at Teemu Aalto Music Productions in Kotka. Jens Bogren will do the mix at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.

“Again when the days grew darker and the nights became colder, our path led into the dark. We checked-in to our traditional forest cabin-hq in the southern Finland for a new material rehearsal camp and (un)reality-check. We came out with 10’ish songs full of that good ol’ Finnish melancholy, sorrow & misery and now it’s time to wrap it all on tape for you peeps to hear ’em. Cannot wait to start the studio process and let the creative processes go up-and-down again!” comments guitarist Markus Vanhala.

INTERVIEW: Insomnium (Finland)


by Carina Lawrence/ Dark Art Conspiracy

I caught up with guitarist Ville Friman of popular melodic death metal band Insomnium from Finland to discuss the band’s origins, their latest album ‘Winter’s Gate’ and if we can expect a new album soon and about their future plans and upcoming tour in March amongst other things…

Firstly can you tell us about how you arrived at the name
Just by coincidence really. We had a list of cool sounding words Niilo
had collected and Insomnium was something that popped out from that list.

How did you come to form Insomnium which first began back in 1997?
Well, we grew up in quite small city where you didn’t have that much to do. So basically, out of boredom. Then again, the early nineties were a great time for metal music. Lots of great albums were released and new substyles were forged. We were heavily inspired what happened in the USA and Scandinavia and wanted to be part of this scene.
