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

Format: Audio CD
This album is a masterpiece of catchy riffs, emotive acoustic, sombre vocals and beautiful melodies. Standout track to be the title track, "the day it all come down" and also "bereavement" and "death walked the earth". I got into Insomnium later than I should of. They were the band which really changed my direction in music from metalcore/tharsh to Melodic death/doom/progressive metal and I have't looked back. Insomium mix all these elements perfectly to produce something that is just plain brilliant

This band qualify as one of my absolute top favourite metal bands. The voice is brutal, yet not overdone. The melodic parts fits perfectly to the vocals. I would describe it as melodic death metal. I would love to see them live some day. Their previous album "In the halls of awaiting" is also very good, but this is even better.

Melodic Death Metal...with a bit more melody 4 Aug. 2006
By T. Wagner - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I love all types of metal. Death metal, black metal, metalcore, power metal, thrash metal, you name it. But I've started sniffing out the more obscure sub-genres such as melodic death metal and black death metal. Insomnium was my big thrust into melodic death metal and I'm absolutely loving it.

This CD had a bit more melody than I was expecting, but after listening to it a couple times, I realize they did an excellent job. I thought it would be tough for me to get away from the pure death/thrash metal that I've been listening to (Arsis, At The Gates, Demiricous), but the constant pounding of the drums and guitars keeps your head banging and the melodies in between keep your toes tapping. Some of the songs seem to have a sort of break in the middle of the song with a melodic breakdown of soft drums and soothing guitar work, then the pounding starts again and doesn't let up until the end.

The beginning of this CD ("Nocturne" leading into "The Day It All Came Down") gave me chills because the opening gets you in a sort of daze and relaxes you a bit, then "The Day It All Came Down" starts with a constant guitar with steady drums and eventually leads to the scream of frontman Niilo Sevänen. Once you reach this point, the CD doesn't let go until the end.

Another stand out track is "Daughter of The Moon". While listening to this track, I get a mixed feeling of an almost "downer" song but with brutal pounding of guitars. This creates a strange mix of positive and negative energies which makes for a different feeling in anyone who listens to it.

This CD is difficult to explain because you really have to feel it. It's not one that you just pop in and bang your head (nothing wrong with that though) but brings out all different emotions. Just think of sadness, anger, depression, passion, hope, and love rolled into one big ball of musical goodness.

Don't be scared of the "melody" part, because I've noticed all that does is relax you so it can slap you in the face with thick riffs and relentless drums. If you're into melodic death metal (or are interested in it), buy this CD. I will be watching these guys in the future and cannot wait to see what else they produce.

Insomnium has hit the nail on the head with this album! 17 May 2004
By Chad Brendan Fogelberg - Published on
Format: Audio CD
In this album, Insomnium have quite simply proved themselves to be the best Melodic Death Metal band out of Finland. This album will put your darkest emotions in a chokehold and will not let go. This is beautiful music for any lover of melodic Heavy Metal. Anyone who likes dark melodies should really enjoy this CD. There is not a bad song on it. Additionally, it's very different from most Melodic Death Metal. For those familiar with melodic Heavy Metal, fans of Opeth, Dark Tranquillity, Sentenced, or Rapture will like this band. I think this is one of the most underrated bands, and every Heavy Metal fan should give this a listen. My favorite songs would be "The Day It All Came Down," "Daughter of the Moon," "Bereavement," "Disengagement," and "Song of the Forlorn Son." As I said before, all the songs are beautiful and this band deserves way more praise than it is receiving. This Insomnium's second release, after "In the Halls of Awaiting," which was very good as well.

Simply Amazing 15 May 2006
By Matthew Teal - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Every aspect of this band is amazing. The members are extremely talented. Guitar's can be pulling off a brutal riff at one point and then emotionally soothing within seconds.. The vocals match the music perfectly. The drummer rolls it great and keeps the tempo going perfectly. This is the best band that I have heard in the melodic death scene for quite some time. This band is meant for people who enjoy Opeth, Dark Tranquility, Arsis, or Vintersorg.

much needed fresh blood on the melodic scene 2 Aug. 2004
By pray_for_mojo - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Although Insomnium gained some attention with this 2004 release, "Since the Day All Came Down" remained relatively overlooked, which is a bit of a shame since from the haunting opening piano piece 'Nocture' to the very last track, Insomnium have come through with a hard hitting, great sounding second album.

This is metal with passion, metal with anger, metal with beauty. What really hooked me on this album is the emotional power and range of the music. Many bands have come along that can arrange progressive metal, but relatively few have had Insomnium's ability to make you really FEEL those heavy and light transitions like they do.

Some of the songs on the album are somewhat reminiscent of Opeth and others, especially in how Insomnium use layered guitars with longer slower notes in the background (an Opeth staple) and also transitions from heavy to light and back. But make no mistake, Insomnium carry it off perfectly, while adding a welcome aggressive edge. An example of where Insomnium begin to set themselves apart from the crowd is on the song 'Disengagement.' The beginning of this song is nothing short of amazing, and it highlights how Insomnium use some rather unique, almost tribal drumming at times.

When I first heard this album, I absolutely loved it, and wrote a raving, drunken rant of a review to back up these feelings. A more sober second look reveals that yes, the album is very good, but just don't expect a whole lot of innovation. Insomnium fits very well within the molds formed by bands such as In Flames and Opeth. But give Insomnium full credit: "Since the Day..." ranks up there with the very best of the genre.

Excellent 4 Nov. 2004
By K. Scott - Published on
Format: Audio CD
All I can say is, for a band I had never heard of, this is a truly tremendous effort. If you like the Dark Tranquillity style of melodic death metal, you should like this. A lot of mellow and acoustic breakdowns seperate this from the more agressive Dark Tranquillity approach, but, similar in style nonetheless. A wonderful album containg a bit of a morose feel throughout. A great surprise that I had to add to my top 15 list of 2004!
