In the realm of melodic death metal, Insomnium reigns supreme with their melancholic approach. This is why I often refer to them as “rainy day metals” alongside Katatonia and In Mourning. Good stuff for when I need to brood, and there’s never a bad time for brooding.
To the point: Chris missed this one earlier because he’s a silly, but Hails and Horns are streaming the new Insomnium album One For Sorrow alongside a track-by-track breakdown by guitarist Ville Friman. I could harp on all day about why Insomnium are worth your time and a step above the countless other melodic death metal acts, but I’ll just let the music speak for itself.
One For The Sorrow is due out in North America October 18th on Century Media.
