Insomnium is now streaming their cinematic-sounding new single "The Witch Hunter" alongside a video created by David Minall. "The Witch Hunter" showcases Insomnium sounding more triumphant than ever, complete with massive melodies and soaring clean vocals in the chorus.
"This is a good example of a song growing and finding its own wings during the studio process," said guitarist Markus Vanhala. "This one definitely has a cinematic feel; the storyline needs the essence of journey moving forward. In fact, I made a Finnish vocal demo for this one, reading and screaming Niilo's storyline, but only the name stayed and translated from 'Noidanmetsästäjä' to English. But that's another story and a secret version never to be found by 'outsiders'… :)"
"This is Markus Vanhala's composition; it actually does not really sound like the archetypal Insomnium song and has some very interesting elements," added bassist and vocalist Niilo Sevänen. "One of the songs that improved the most in the studio in my opinion – and became one of the singles. Lyrically it continues to tell the story from the Witch Hunter's point of view."
"For me, this song has a really strong cinematic feel to it, and I can easily travel into the story in my head when I close my eyes," said guitarist Ville Friman.
