Insomnium: launch new video for "Regain The Fire"
INSOMNIUM's fifth album "One For Sorrow" was one of the Metal highlights of 2011, a perfect blend of melancholy and melody. Now 'Finland's finest miserablists' (as Terrorizer described them) present the second video "Regain The Fire" at the dawn of their UK tour start with PARADISE LOST in April. Same as the first video "Through The Shadows", the video was produced by their Finnish friends of Obscure Entertainment from Tampere.
The band comments on the video and upcoming tour with label mates PARADISE LOST: "Our new video Regain the Fire was shot already in last July so it still features our old guitarist Ville Vänni. The video is done by Obscure Entertainment who are responsible for all our videos since 2006. This time we also have a story line amidst the moshing so this is a bit different than previous works. Go and watch the video and judge it yourself! We are really excited to hit UK together with Paradise Lost. They are one of those bands which we liked already as teens so it really feels strange that we are getting in a same tour bus with them. We haven't toured UK properly since 2009 so it's high time to deliver some goodies for the Britons. So remember, there is no excuse for not showing up!"
The video will be premiered through Terrorizer's website. Click here to see the video: http://truecultheavymetal.com/
"One For Sorrow" press feedback:
"A defiant stand against hopelessness rather than a surrender to the mire of depression."
"Arguably their most expansive effort yet, this is a must for fans and newcomers alike."
Metal Hammer, UK
"Insomnium exemplify how to fuse genuine heaviness with heart-wringing beauty."
