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/

My advice is simple - buy all of this band's cds. Finnish band Insomnium are criminally underated. If you like your metal heavy with plenty of melody, if you like your music with twists and turns, darkness and light, a mix of clean and growled vocals, guitars soloing like the harmonies from angels - this is for you. As with all of their cds the tracks blend and compliment - my favourite track at the moment on Across the Dark is Against the Stream which is just awesome. Buy this then go back to the beginning (In the Halls of Awaiting) and work up - you will not be disappointed.

For those who previously enjoyed Above the Weeping World this album continues on with the familiar sound, albeit now with the injection of clean vocals here and there. Don't worry, the gruff vocals still take centre stage and they're delivered in exactly the same manner as before. The guitar sound is also very similar - powerful yet melodic throughout. It amazes me that a band like Insomnium can output what is essentially Death Metal, but infuse it with a sense of emotion - yearning, pain, regret; there are many angles explored in their unique music.

If I do have a couple of minor complaints it's that their music is almost too consistent, i.e. there is little in way of deviating from the established formula, though that can of course be considered a plus when a band produces music as good as they do. The other slight minus is the clean vocals (admittedly sparingly used) - they don't quite have any real impact and don't especially stand out as something that adds to the music in the way that, say, Dimmu Borgir's implementation of Vortex's vocals did.

Otherwise this is a definite requirement for those already into Insomnium - you are unlikely to be disappointed. The DVD adds value, and there are a couple of bonus tracks on this edition not listed above, one of which seems to be an old variation of a song that appeared on Weeping World. Stand-out tracks for me include The Harrowing Years, Lay of the Autumn, and Into The Woods. There is not a duff track amongst the rest either.
