Before taking on a more accessible albeit controversial route of music perceived in the eyes of "traditional" metalheads, In Flames were heralded as one of the pioneers of a genre that underwent more changes than Wacko Jacko's wardrobe; having said that, the music in its pristine form is to this day a refreshing blend of melody and aggression. It may seem out of place for me to ramble on and on about In Flames here, but Insomnium's Since The Day It All Came Down is, quite bluntly put, a more darker and mellower evolution of the In Flames sound of yore. This does not mean that it is a rip-off; on the contrary, Insomnium has managed to hone this style of music in their own, unique mold. The result, ladies and gentleman, is a pure masterpiece.

Imho, the best bunch of music Insomnium has ever made. the folkened Doomish elements combined perfectly with the riffs, Bereavement and Daughter of the Moon are both killer tracks

I just finish listening to this album again and wanted to give it a rate, just realized I had already rated 2 months ago after clicking the album's title. The best thing happened was my rating was exactly the same now and then ! 5 at most.

3rd that. It may not be as polished and neatly produced as their later releases but the originality and energy makes this album stand apart.

Actually had to adjust my vote from 9 to 10 on this, I realised that I've lost count on how many times I've listened to this, and I'm still not bored of it.. The Moment of Reckoning is such an amazing song
