Insomnium – Winter’s Gate

insomnium

Things open with the gentle sounds of wind upon the waves before erupting into classic Insomium riffing. The early going is fairly typical for the band but features some of their strongest writing in recent memory. At the 6:10 mark things move toward calmer waters, adopting a soothing, Anathema-like drone before heavy riffs return to wreck your dark tranquility. These riffs give way to an upbeat, almost Running Wild style “pirates on the high seas” lead which reoccurs periodically throughout the song.
