Insomnium: launches part 1 of documentary for latest album, 'One For Sorrow'
Before entering the studio to record their upcoming sixth studio album, Finnish melodic death metallers INSOMNIUM have first compiled a "making of" documentary of their time in the studio recording 2011's One For Sorrow, their Century Media debut.
INSOMNIUM comments: "During the spring of 2011, our good friend Jussi Ratilainen decided to shoot some video of INSOMNIUM, which was supposed to become a short, making-of-documentary about the writing and recording of our latest album 'One For Sorrow'. As you already know, things took an unexpected turn and we lost a band member and a good friend, Ville Vänni, during this process. Luckily, during the same year we also found the best imaginable fit and new member from Markus Vanhala. This is our first-ever video release telling how 'One For Sorrow' came into being. It's also a story about friendship and dedication; about four guys chasing a dream while trying to make ends meet. In all its honesty."
Check out the first episode here.
To purchase One For Sorrow, please visit iTunes for a digital copy or CM Distro for a variety of physical formats. For a preview of One For Sorrow, be sure to check out the video for "Through The Shadows".
INSOMNIUM will embark on one more European tour to promote One For Sorrow. The band comments: "We have been listening to CHILDREN OF BODOM since we started this band and it's an honour to share the same stage with them every night. Can't wait to see you on road!"
