Insomnium are fast becoming a force to be reckoned with. Shadows of the dying sun is a faultless album, from the slow burning The Primeval Dark to the harrowing closer of Shadows of the dying sun this album delivers a rollercoaster ride of the very finest melodic death metal.
The production is hard to describe in words, but i think the best way to describe it is, as a wall of sound. Everything seems to be playing on the same level, nothing louder or quieter in the mix. I could appreciate why some people wouldn't like it (dynamic range is something that happens to other people) and i'm not sure many bands could pull this off but somehow insomnium manage it.
Its the sonic equivalent of being alone, at 01:00 on a barren hillside with the mother of all storms brewing on the horizon.
The guitar work is astounding with some terrific lead work, crushing atmospheric riffs and fantastic melodies. The vocals deliver both on the heavy, death metal style and the soulful sung passages. The rhythm section never seem to stop with some furiously intricate and punishing drum work with the bass always locked down and keeping it moving.
Standout tracks are While we sleep, Black Heart Rebellion, Collapsing Words, The Promethean Song and the title track.
I cannot recommend this album enough - A truly phenomenal piece of music.

other reviews have placed this album slightly lower down than a couple of their other releases, personally I think this is a very strong album that stands up to the rest.

Absolutely blown away by this album! I just love how the band can switch seamlessly from melodic acoustic to crushing heavy riffs and growls, at one minute I feel I could shed a tear and the next I'm rocking my head like George corpsegrinder! All killer, no filler too 😀

The best Insomnium album so far. Every song is different and still very good. Melodic variety of the decade . They became one of my favorite bands.
