"Songs of the dusk" SINGLE by Insomnium
Music is essentially a weapon to break down the walls we have erected around us - and Finnish metal melancholists INSOMNIUM are among the strongest wielders of this weapon. Their ninth masterpiece 'Anno 1696', released in early 2023, takes us deep into the dark and restless past of Northern Europe, a time of witches, superstition, bloodlust, and madness. And werewolves. Now, INSOMNIUM continue the epic story of 'Anno 1696' with their addendum-like EP 'Songs of the Dusk', which includes 22 minutes of music and three more journeys into a dark and misty past. 'We simply had eleven great songs, and we thought that this material is too good to be 'just' bonus tracks,' explains Niilo Sevänen (bass, vocals). 'They are part of the big story, so you can consider them as director's cut material that tells a little more. For those who want more.'
Mixed by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Orgone Studios) and mastered by Tony Lindgren (Fascination Street Studios), 'Anno 1696' and its accompanying 'Songs of the Dusk' are their most accomplished, emotionally stirring, and soaring achievements to date.
Originally, 'Songs of the Dusk' was part of the Ltd. Deluxe 2CD Artbook of 'Anno 1696', but is now available separately as: Ltd. CD Digipak as well as Vinyl editions with motif-etched side B.
