Insomnium, Enslaved & Black Anvil Announce North American Tour, Insomnium Debut “White Christ” Video Featuring Sakis Tolis Of Rotting Christ


Insomnium and Enslaved have announced the dates for a North American tour they will be co-headlining this coming spring. Black Anvil will be taking on the opening duties for that trek. Both of the aforementioned headliners have new albums in the wings, with Enslaved‘s sixteenth studio outing “Heimdal” due out March 03rd. Insomnium  ninth full-length offering “Anno 1969” will land a week prior on February 24th.

Coinciding with the announcement of this trek is the arrival of a video for Insomnium‘s latest single “White Christ“, which features a guest spot from Rotting Christ vocalist/guitarist Sakis Tolis. Riivata directed that clip, while several members of the Finnish melodic death metal group weighed in on the song itself.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala:

“Heavy & hypnotic! A very Rotting Christ-influenced song, and it was insane that in the end Sakis of Rotting Christ ended up being featured on the song as a vocalist. Can’t wait to see people raise their fists at concerts for this banger.”

Bassist/vocalist Niilo Sevänen:

“This is Markus Vanhala‘s composition and maybe the heaviest song on the album. Great to have Sakis from Rotting Christ on this track too. Lyrically it is about the mindset of the main antagonist of the story and the religious fervor.”

Guitarist Ville Friman:

“A really catchy and heavy song. Also a new type of Insomnium song we have not had before on any previous albums.”
