INSOMNIUM "One for Sorrow"

I'm kind of surprised this isn't on here.

Finnish melodic death metallers INSOMNIUM will release their new album, "One For Sorrow", on October 12 in Finland, October 17 in the rest of Europe and October 18 in North America via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded in Gothenburg, Sweden with sound engineer Daniel Antonsson (also bassist in DARK TRANQUILLITY and guitarist in DIMENSION ZERO) and at Fantom studios in Tempere, Finland, where the album was also mixed by Samu Oittisen.

According to a press release, "One For Sorrow" is "such an amalgamation of styles that pigeonholing [INSOMNIUM] into a single category would be to rob the band of its true complexity and ignore the very essence of its sound. Recalling art-metal titans CULT OF LUNA at one turn and brutal visionaries AMON AMARTH at others, 'One For Sorrow' displays the true musical breadth of a band that has clearly come into its own."

INSOMNIUM guitarist Ville Friman comments on the album title: "The name 'One For Sorrow' comes from a traditional children’s nursery rhyme. There are ten different scenarios in the original rhyme; likewise there are ten different songs and stories on our album. I think 'One For Sorrow' truly depicts what this album is all about: bereavement, grief and loss."

INSOMNIUM will embark on a European headlining tour in November with support from fellow Finns BEFORE THE DAWN and MYGRAIN.

Commented INSOMNIUM vocalist Niilo Sevänen: "'One For Sorrow' is a truly epic album and the tour will surely be immense! We get to visit many of our favorite cities and meet the fans who have long waited for INSOMNIUM headlining show. From London to Ljubljana, we are looking forward to see you all!"

INSOMNIUM's last CD, "Across The Dark", entered the official chart in the band's home country at position No. 5. The album was also recorded at Fantom studio (where the group previously recorded its 2006 LP, "Above the Weeping World").

Yeah they should tour here again. They should bring Swallow the Sun, Eternal Tears of Sorrow, Amorphis, and Before the Dawn.

I saw them a few years ago in Cleveland with Katatonia, Swallow the Sun, and Scar Symmetry. Great show.

I would a tour with them, StS, and Before the Dawn. Maybe throw on Daylight Dies.
