70000 Tons of Metal - The World's Biggest Heavy Metal Cruise

Insomnium Posts "While We Sleep" Music Video

Finnish melodic death metal outfit Insomnium has completed the video clip for the track "While We Sleep," taken from upcoming album "Shadows Of The Dying Sun," which is due out April 28th in Europe and April 29th in North America via Century Media Records.

The video was directed by Dariusz Szermanowicz and can be viewed below, courtesy of No Clean Singing.

Insomnium's Ville Friman (guitars/vocals) comments: "Couple of weeks ago we travelled to Wroclaw, Poland, to shoot the first music video from 'Shadows Of The Dying Sun'. This time we decided to work with a Polish production company, Grupa 13, whose work includes the new Behemoth video, amongst others. The song we chose for the video is called 'While We Sleep'. It's a wistful song with all typical Insomnium elements included - riffs, melodies, aggression, sorrow, grandeur and hope. We shot everything within one day and it was really a pleasure to work with such a professional film group. Everything went smoothly, and we are amazed and very happy with the end result. You really can't complain when the film group provides you vodka schnapps between the takes. We sincerely hope that you'll like the end result as much as we do."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. The Primeval Dark
2. While We Sleep
3. Revelation (see the lyric video here)
4. Black Heart Rebellion
5. Lose To Night
6. Collapsing Words
7. The River
8. Ephemeral
9. The Promethean Song
10. Shadows Of The Dying Sun
