The album is due to be released on April 28th in Europe and April 29th in North America this year via Century Media Records. Don't waste time, listen to a new Insomnium song now!

The song "Revelations", also from the new album, is still available for streaming over here.

What do you think of the video?

Pretty awesome!
Justicelust - 07.04.2014 at 16:50  
This is art, so awesome! this one is their best after Across The Dark. It's epic and mindblowing like the songs they usually had before One For Sorrow.

Got mixed feelings after one listen. Some of it reminded me little of Above The Weeping World, which is a good thing! Then there's some newer elements I'm not sure of.. Oh well, gonna buy the album anyways!

Very nice!
IronArkadius666 - 07.04.2014 at 17:08  
Holy shit! I was already excited but now my hopes have skyrocketed, loving the Weeping World touches.

I don't know where you guys are hearing the AtWW elements - the way I remember it, that album was defined by timeless melodies, of which I don't see much here

It's in the way the song develops, rather than in the melodies. Getting a carbon copy would be rather boring, wouldn't it?

Another great track. Awesome record coming up if they can keep at it all the way through.

It's my opinion that every Insomnium album supersedes the previous in quality. Thus far from what they've released, they're seemingly on track to follow suit with this album.

Didn't expect much, but I'm still surprised at how much I enjoyed it
Dark Blood - 07.04.2014 at 20:28  
This is why I love these guys. This song is what I usually expect to hear from them, and more. Great atmosphere and melodies. The clean vocals are a nice touch to it as well.
Scathach666 - 07.04.2014 at 21:10  
Killer track
WorpeX - 08.04.2014 at 01:21  
Awesome!!

Bloody amazing experience. For eyes and ears.
Troy Killjoy - 08.04.2014 at 01:57  
It's alright. I think I'm officially starting to dislike all forms of melodeath, even from some formerly favorite bands. I've heard this song 100 times already before, it's nothing new.
deadone - 08.04.2014 at 02:12  
Well that was boring.

It also sounds like pretty much every other modern melodic band with growl vocals.

Totally agree.

I like the stuff that came out in the 90s. After that melodic DM largely went down the toilet.

There's no energy or intensity or originality in these newer bands. And the old ones ala Dark Tranquility or Soilwork have completely lost steam.


It's in fact it's largely become emo music with growl vocals.


I think in the end Melodic DM was a one-trick pony and it died nearly two decades ago.
Kivenkantaja - 08.04.2014 at 02:29  
Preferred Revelation, i think

Same here, not sure if I like it or I'm bored by it.. These two new songs definitely are reminiscent of their earlier works, which is awesome but at the same time they still can't quite shake off the blandness Insomnium has become.

So far, at least I'm liking these new tracks more than everything off Sorrow, though that's not saying much.

I enjoyed this more than I thought I would. I used to like Insomnium a lot too, but I got too used to their sound.

I wouldn't write off all of melodic death though...Amon Amarth? Kalmah?

Amon Amarth just regurgitate the same old album every couple of years. As I always say, they make AC/DC and Cannibal Corpse sound like progressive avant garde jazz.


Kalmah are still doing well but that's it.

I had the same reaction on "Revelations" track and exactly the same now. Seems like they lost 2 people
bladefall - 08.04.2014 at 15:06  
This song is good.But i find the intro riff is so similar to Down with the sun、1:30-1:48.
I really hope they aren't stuck for fresh ideas.

Not even close, mate. It sounds familiar because it shares a chord progression with Song of the Blackest Bird (outro).

I kinda agree with you here. Melodic death metal was the first extreme genre I got in to, and now I'm just sick and tired of the genre. Even Seventh Swamphony by Kalmah didn't do it for me. But oh well, still hoping there's something with this album, as much as I still love the older Insomnium albums like Since The Day It All Came Down and Above The Weeping World

He said that is sounds similar, not the same. As soon as the song started I knew that I'd heard something like it before. It's clear that they're running out of ideas.

Like I said, not even close. As for running out of ideas, to me they sound more inspired than on the previous record. Sure, some things are being recycled (deliberately or not), but that doesn't mean the well has run dry.

Just love it. Maybe some of you say Insomnium are always doing the same things but at least they do them a very nice way. All their songs are very enjoyable if not memorable. Besides, I wouldn't call them melodeath I will buy this album, undoubtedly !

Same ;(

I Haven't had the urge to listen to melodeath in some time now. Same bands putting out the same shit it seems.

At least your comment was funny, even though I don't agree with you

When will they ditch the clean vocals?

Probably never considering it's an integral part of the band's sound.

Integral how, they only started using clean vocals on Across the Dark, and even then they only used them for two songs if I recall.

If all else fails, can't they get someone who doesn't sound so... whiny.

Integral in the sense that it's what Insomnium does now to "separate themselves" from the horde of melodic "death" metal bands. There was a bit of veiled sarcasm in that comment but sometimes it doesn't translate well in text.
