Insomnium – Across the Dark (2009) – Review

RockmusicRaider Review - Insomnium - Across the Dark - Album CoverWhen the cold dark wind is howling through the countryside with a bleak moon illuminating the wolves looking for sorry beasts to hunt down, then this is about the mood the 2009 album Across the Dark from the Finnish metallers Insomnium appears to transmit to the poor listener – unless you are a Metal Fan and a melancholic Melodeath Fan to boot. 

But relax: Nothing there about poor fans and such, this is stellar Melodic Death Metal produced by Insomnium and I absolutely love the way they present their music. Of course (and we know it), this band spouts a gloomy style.

This reminds you of bleak landscapes and you really want – in a desperate way – to be depressed and look for some Xanax.Got hooked? Raid this some more...
