INSOMNIUM: North American Tour Blog Launched

September 6, 2007

Finland's INSOMNIUM is currently on the road in North America with fellow countrymen SWALLOW THE SUN as well as Sweden's KATATONIA and SCAR SYMMETRY as part of the Live Consternation tour. A tour diary/blog maintained by INSOMNIUM guitarist Ville Friman can be found at this location.

INSOMNIUM's video for the song "Mortal Share", from their current album, titled "Above the Weeping World", can be viewed below.

Released October 17, 2006, "Above the Weeping World" was recorded at renowned Fantom and Finnvox studios and contains the band's skilled melodic death metal. Stunningly heavier with even further dynamic and melodic variety than that of their previous efforts, the CD "is by far the best INSOMNIUM album," stated vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen. "It is the first time we feel we really succeeded in studio. We have nine great tracks on the album. As a band we are very happy with the end result."

For the past three years, INSOMNIUM has quietly founded a strong sales history and supportive fanbase. Their two recordings, "In the Halls of Awaiting" and "Since the Day All Came Down", represent mere glimpses into the potential of this still very young band. The band recorded two demos before signing with England's Candlelight Records (home to OPETH's original trilogy of records).
