Insomnium Premiere “The Witch Hunter”


0

A brand new single from Insomnium by the name of “The Witch Hunter” went up online today. That song is the latest single to emerge from the Finnish melodic death metal band’s upcoming ninth studio album “Anno 1696“, which Century Media have earmarked for a February 24th release date.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented of this new single:

“This is a good example of a song growing and finding its own wings during the studio process. 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’… :)”

Bassist/vocalist Niilo Sevänen added:

“This is Markus Vanhala‘s composition; it actually does not really sound like the archetypal Insomnium song and has some very interesting elements. 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.”

Guitarist Ville Friman concluded:

“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.”

In support of that outing, the group will embark on the below co-headlining North American tour with Enslaved. Black Anvil will open that run.
