Insomnium – One for Sorrow (2011) – Review


Ah, yes! Sleepless music for the sleepless, made by the Sleepless Ones from Finland. And from where else? The land of eternal night. A bit subdued, I would say, but still trademark 'Insomnium' fare. 

Complex tunes established around the grunts of Niilo Sevänen, just great Melodic Death Metal at its best. Like freshly ground coffee, to be enjoyed by preference in the morning as a little breakfast music. And it is Melodeath with a Doom component that is very pronounced. 

Perhaps they are pushing the melancholic button a bit too often.
