Insomnium Recording New Album


Recording sessions are underway for Insomnium‘s eighth studio album. Initial sessions are taking place at SF Studio with Kimmo Perkkiö engineering, after which the band will continue on at Teemu Aalto Music Productions in Kotka, Finland. Jens Bogren (Amon Amarth, Opeth) will later mix the record at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden. The band’s guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:

“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!”

Vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen added:

“Exactly so! 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!”

A fall 2019 release date is being eyed for the effort.
