INSOMNIUM Is In The Studio For A New Record Out This Fall
Insomnium have hit the studio for their follow-up to 2016's Winter's Gate. The band will work with engineer Kimmo Perkkiö (Insomnium, Stam1na) at SF Studio, as well as at Teemu Aalto Music Productions in Kotka. The record will be mixed by Jens Bogren (Amorphis, Enslaved, Ihsahn, Katatonia, etc.) at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden, and Insomnium says they're planning on putting it out this fall.
Here's what the band had to say.
"Again when the days grew darker and the nights became colder, our path led into the dark. We checked-in to our traditional forest cabin-hq in the southern Finland for a new material rehearsal camp and (un)reality-check. We came out with 10’ish songs full of that good ol’ Finnish melancholy, sorrow & misery and now it’s time to wrap it all on tape for you peeps to hear ’em. Cannot wait to start the studio process and let the creative processes go up-and-down again!" comments guitarist Markus Vanhala.
”Exactly so!” adds vocalist & bassist Niilo Sevänen. ”We have a pile of great songs in our hands and we can’t wait to get these recorded and finished. I would say the album will be the kind of dreary and wistful Insomnium that people probably might expect but we also have a few surprises in store. Lyrically the album will revolve around Finland’s bleakest and most sorrowful tales and songs. So this time we are really going into the blackened heart of Finnish gloom!”
