KASC The Blaze 1330 AM (web site) conducted an interview with guitarist Ville Friman of Finnish melodic death metallers INSOMNIUM. The chat is now available for streaming using the SoundCloud player below.
"One For Sorrow", the new video from Finnish melodic death metallers INSOMNIUM, can be seen below. The song is the title track of the band's latest album, which was released in October 2011 in North America via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded in Gothenburg, Sweden with sound engineer Daniel Antonsson (also bassist in DARK TRANQUILLITY and guitarist in DIMENSION ZERO) and at Fantom studios in Tempere, Finland, where the album was also mixed by Samu Oittisen.
INSOMNIUM vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen tells AOL's Noisecreep about the video and the band's upcoming North American tour with EPICA, ALESTORM and SYSTEM DIVIDE: "'One For Sorrow' is one of the best songs INSOMNIUM has ever done. It stands out as a unique kind of track and it clearly deserves a video of its own. It's not your typical melodic death metal song but something else: the essence of the song is not its pace or brutality, but its haunting and melancholic atmosphere. And that mood might be much heavier than any blast-beat onslaught you can create.
"The video for 'One For Sorrow' was filmed at Wacken Open Air and Tuska Open Air this summer. The atmosphere at both these shows was absolutely amazing, and I hope this live video conveys the feeling that we were really enjoying our time on stage.
"After a busy summer and a short break, it now feels good to get touring again. We've been waiting for five years since our last North American tour and finally we have the chance to keep conquering America. We'll be all around the continent, and it will surely be a great tour for everyone. See you soon!"
INSOMNIUM last fall parted ways with guitarist Ville Vänni and replaced him with Markus Vanhala (OMNIUM GATHERUM).
