23:59 - Netzach Czerny, I get your point but I'd say the same about "Ashes"... It just gets too droney and gaze-ish in sections. Limbs and Not Unlike the Waves are awesome though... The Mantle has this "whiskey fueled regret"-feel I adore
23:55 - Netzach Btw, AMA on Reddit with A.A Nemtheanga if anyone's interested [link]
23:51 - Czerny Reiter Ashes Against the Grain & Marrow take the cake for me. The Mantle has some sections where it loses steam and gets all too mellow.
23:45 - Overrwatcher The Mantle is beautiful. It's not technical or experimental, it's just a well-crafted album made with simple instruments. I show it to non-metalhead friends and they love it.
23:12 - Netzach 3rd, compared to those albums, The Mantle contains a lot more post-rock and acoustic/folk.
While they are working on a new album, Finnish metallers Insomnium have posted online the first part of the "Making of" documentary of their time in the studio recording their Century Media debut full-length album, One For Sorrow. You can watch Part 1 of the documentary below directed by Jussi Ratilainen.
The band comments: "During the spring 2011 our good friend Jussi Ratilainen decided to shoot some video of Insomnium, which was supposed to become a short, making-of-documentary about writing and recording of our latest album One For Sorrow. As you already know, things took unexpected turn and we lost a band member and a good friend, Ville Vänni, during this process. Luckily, during the same year we also found the best imaginable fit and new member from Markus Vanhala. This is our first-ever video release telling how One for Sorrow came into being. It's also a story about friendship and dedication; about four guys chasing a dream while trying to make ends meet. In all its honesty."
