Article description

Appearing as a limited deluxe edition in a high-quality artbook (44-page booklet) and a bonus EP 'Songs of the dusk'.

Very few bands combine sounds of darkness, melody, and musicality like the Finnish INSOMNIUM. With 'Anno 1696,' the ninth installment of their sonic explorations, which also includes masterpieces like 'Shadows of the Dying Sun' (2014) and 'Winter's Gate' (2016), INSOMNIUM continues to interweave bitter sound branches that set the standard for upcoming nightmares. From the expansive soundscapes and sparse chords that open the album with the track '1696,' to the sound cloud and deathly growl of 'White Christ,' the haunting 'Godforsaken,' the catchiness of 'Lilian,' and the epic closing piece of the album, 'The Rapids,' 'Anno 1696' is a soundtrack of intensity and despair that captivates and never lets go. A masterpiece of Finnish melancholy.
