insomnium have captured the true essence of melodic death metal I find it an odd mix because its brutal yet soothing I can quite easily put my headphones in and chill to there songs as much as I can pump out a gym session with aggression listening to it, either way it is fantastic and shadows of the dying sun is a truly great album love the guitar riffs especially "while we sleep" and "lose tonight" but every single song to me has a great moment in it, there must be something in finlands water because there producing some top notch bands, keep going insomnium!

So Insomnium's 6th album is finally here. Actually, this is not just another album but rather a beautiful journey full of emotions that will offer you a great companion either when travelling or when you are at home. 'Shadows Of The Dying Sun' is with no doubt another great addition to Insomnium's back catalogue. The band has been steadily growing through the years and since day one the music always maintained an amazing quality in every aspect. The previous album 'One For Sorrow' was a masterpiece in my opinion but thankfully Insomnium have managed to produce another album which is on par in terms of quality (if not better).

I will refrain from providing a detailed description of each song (you can find plenty detailed reviews on the web) but I would like to stress that the music of the whole album is just beautiful. All new songs are excellent and the atmosphere these Finns create is just amazing - this is pure art! The production is top-notch as well and enhances the value of this studio offering.

As you would expect, melancholy meets aggression in a perfect balance; The guitar work from the founding member Ville Friman and the new member Markus Vanhala (also in Omnium Gatherum) is great throughout: there are really good riffs, sweet melodies, acoustic passages, and beautiful solos - keyboards are also used effectively. This time there are more parts with clean vocals (courtesy of Ville Friman) which add to the atmosphere and successfully support a nice melody. For instance, this approach is more prominent in the song 'Lose to Night' which has an excellent and really infectious chorus.

What a fantastic album...a nice mix of growls and clean vocals. TBH I didn't know much about Insomnium, I love it when you take a punt on a blind purchase and it turns out as good as this. The guitars are pitched to get the hairs standing up on the back of the neck. A great album to listen to through the headphones...I agree with other reviewers the production is a bit low key, but it doesn't detract too much from the listening experience. I'm certainly going to be purchasing from their back catalogue if this is the standard of music and song writing. Also touring later this year. If you like Dark Tranquility and other bands of this genre, I doubt you will not go wrong in purchasing this album. Great stuff!

Good stuff but need a good amp/setup to really hear the greatness. Been waiting awhile for this but not disappointed at all. Give it a go :)

I don't know what is the formula but Insomnium is always capable of making their genre of metal sound special.
