Finnish Melodic Death Metallers INSOMNIUM, have released their new EP “Songs Of The Dusk”, on November 3rd via Century Media Records. To celebrate the release the band unveiled a visualizer video for the track “Stained In Red”, created by The Dor Brothers with the help of AI.
” ‘Stained in Red’ was written during the pandemic as an antidote to lighter, acoustic-orientated stuff we were coming up with. After the more mellow ‘Argent Moon’ EP, I wanted to write something more aggressive and heavier”, says Ville Friman (guitars). “Some influences from OPETH and GOJIRA can possibly be heard on this one, as these bands were on heavy rotation on my playlist at that time.”
Originally “Songs Of The Dusk” was a part of the Ltd. Deluxe 2CD Artbook of “Anno 1696”, but it is now available separately as: Ltd. CD Digipak, LP with etching on side B and as Digital EP.
The band comments: “As the album would have been too long, we left these three tracks out on the initial version, yet they are part of the ‘Anno 1696’ story and complement it and some of the gaps are being filled. ‘Songs Of The Dusk’ offers an alternative ending, so people can decide which kind of mood they prefer. This version is a bit more hopeful and less tragic, at least on a general INSOMNIUM scale – everyone is dead…except the wolves.”
“Songs Of The Dusk” track listing:
- Flowers of the Night
