Insomnium: LAUNCHES NEW VIDEO FOR "REGAIN THE FIRE"
INSOMNIUM LAUNCHES 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 described by Terrorizer) present their second video from the album, "Regain The Fire"! Like their first video for "Through The Shadows", this clip was produced by their Finnish friends Obscure Entertainment from Tampere.
In regards to the video and their upcoming tour with label-mates PARADISE LOST, the band comments: "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 is 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 the 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!"
To watch the video, head over to Terrorizer's website now:
Read on for a few reviews of INSOMNIUM's One For Sorrow:
"Moored by Ville Friman and Ville Vänni's soaring if plaintive melodies and old-school Gothenburg aggression, 'One For Sorrow' demonstrates what a cold dark night in Finland might be like after getting into a bar brawl over a pint of flat Olvi and losing the affection of the light-haired girl in the corner." - Decibel Magazine, US
"...while INSOMNIUM have introduced new elements into their music and have taken a few away over the past few albums, one thing remains the same: consistency and quality have always been two key ingredients to INSOMNIUM's music, and 'One For Sorrow' is proof of that yet again." - Ultimate Guitar.com, US
"INSOMNIUM finds the ultimate balance of technical prowess and song arrangement with raw emotion and an almost simplistic presentation that pulls you right into a melancholy and ponderous state of mind." - Stereokiller.com, US
"A defiant stand against hopelessness rather than a surrender to the mire of depression." - Kerrang, UK
"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." - Terrorizer, UK
