  • Description

    Inspired by Edge Of Sanity’s majestic one-song-monument “Crimson” (1996), Finnish melodic deathsters INSOMNIUM present a very special and personal release with "Winter's Gate". The concept album is made of one epic 40 minute song and built around a short story of the same title (“Talven portti” in Finnish) by vocalist & bassist Niilo Sevänen, which won several awards and nominations in Finland back in 2007 and 2008. It's a story about a group of Vikings who set out to find a fabled island west from Ireland, even though the winter is drawing near. This gloomy tale has been translated to German and English as well as illustrated by the artist Teemu Tähkänen. Mixed and mastered by Dan Swanö, musically “Winter’s Gate” is supported with equally dark and atmospheric melodic death that bears all the classic INSOMNIUM trademarks. The Ltd. deluxe 2CD artbook includes additional illustrations plus the Finnish / English / German versions of the short story as well as an audiobook CD read by Niilo Sevänen in English. An ambitious piece of melodic death metal art!
