Top quality melodic death metal from Finland,
This review is from: In the Halls of Awaiting (Audio CD)
Take 2 parts Dark Tranquillity, 1 part Opeth and 1 part In Flames and what have you got .... ? No, I'm not answering that ..... its a rhetorical question ...tch... For those not familiar with these bands then this album is a really nicely balanced blend of catchy metal riffs with the occasional soft acoustic passage and the Scandinavian trademark combo of death plus softly-spoken vocal styles.
Echoing what someone else wrote in their review, Insomnium already sound like professionals despite the fact that that this is their first album! That should say a lot.
A must for anyone who likes heavy or extreme metal.
Simple as that.
