Biography

Insomnium biography 2009 .... Over the last decade Insomnium has slowly but surely made itself a household name among the melodic deathsters. Formed in 1997 in a somnolent town of Joensuu, in eastern Finland, these stern men have ever since redefined the boundaries of the genre. Two highly acclaimed demos already set the standard and in 2001 the band signed to UK label Candlelight Records. ... Read more in Amazon's Insomnium Store

In short: Gorgeous, spacious, rousing, vital Melo Death. An album that you'll listen to again and again.

A quick confession, prior to buying this CD I wasn't overly familiar with Insomnium (I'd heard of them but had never really 'heard' them). I bought this on a whim and on the suspicion that if I didn't I might just be missing out on some of the best melo-death being produced today. I thank the stars that I did because 'Across the Dark' is truly a knockout album. Rich, creative, exciting, captivating, entertaining (the adjectives could go on I assure you).

I'm a big big fan of Finnish band Omnium Gatherum (do check out their brilliant 'The Red Shift') and so, whenever I hear of a new or previously (for me) unheard of 'Finnish' Melo-Death band I'm always just a little curious to know what they're like. Amazon samples and a bit of iTunes fishing confirmed all the staples of melo-death were intact (death vocals - check, chugging drums - check, rousing guitar - check so on and etc.) but, as they say 'the proof is in the pudding'. I eagerly awaited the arrival of the +DVD version of this album (which is the version you should pick up if at all possible) from Amazon UK. When it arrived I sat down and listened to it from start to finish... then I listened to it again... and again... and again....

There's always a wonderful feeling when you know that you've found an album that's going to be with you for years to come, an album that (despite however many times that you've heard it) will take you back to that very first experience when you pressed play for the very first time and the music you heard restored your faith in good old rock'n'roll (should that be 'death'n'roll').

I've been fallowing this band for quite a while now,ang every time they released an album they never let me down.coming from the success of they're last album (Above The Weeping World) is a big challenge for the band to top that album,since its one of the best metal releases of 2006..For me this is a natural progression of that one.from the opener(equivalence) you know your in for a treat! all of the trademark sound of insomnium is present.its a not stop metal melodies to the max!I've never been this excited again for a long time since i first hear a metal album way back 1984,via Metallica's ride the lightning.But this time they incorporate a new elements to they're sound adding a clean vocals,is quite good,though i love to hear nilo sevannen to do that duty,i wonder how it will sound during live show..So what are you waiting for?to all the people who enjoy's this type of music go on & pick this album,just make sure you already have their previous albums its all worth your cash!& make sure to get the limited edition with bonus DVD! plus 2 bonus tracks.this is one of the best album of this year so far.congrats INSOMNIUM! horns up!\m/

I'll keep this short. As per all the other reviews so far....this is the single best CD of 2009 and Insomnium could very well be the best band you never hear because all the other more 'popular' melo-death/doom bands such as DT et al get the lions share of attention. This is simply awesome, a true timeless classic that will last for years and years to come. You should buy this album AND then get their back catalogue, especially Above The Weeping World which is as good if not better!! Perfect!!

I bought this on a whim, and i'm very glad i did this!
This is one of the best melodic deathmetal releases this year.
I'm certainly going to buy the other albums of this terrific band.
This is a finnish group, but they have a real Goteborgstyle of guitars.
Listen to this, and be amazed!
