Insomnium Posts New Music Video "One For Sorrow"

Finnish melodic death metallers Insomnium return to North America in October for a tour with Epica, Alestorm, and System Divide. In anticipation of this trek, the band is partnering with AOL Noisecreep to premiere a video for the title track off latest album, "One For Sorrow" (reviewed here).

Watch the video - a live recording from the Wacken Open Air and Tuska Open Air festivals - through Noisecreep or in the player below.

Vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen comments: "'One for Sorrow' is one of the best songs Insomnium has ever done. It stands out as a unique kind of track and it clearly deserves a video of its own. It's not your typical melodic death metal song but something else: the essence of the song is not its pace or brutality, but its haunting and melancholic atmosphere. And that mood might be much heavier than any blast-beat onslaught you can create...

"The video for 'One for Sorrow' was filmed at Wacken Open Air and Tuska Open Air this summer. The atmosphere at both these shows was absolutely amazing, and I hope this live video conveys the feeling that we were really enjoying our time on stage...After a busy summer and a short break, it now feels good to get touring again. We've been waiting for five years since our last North American tour and finally we have the chance to keep conquering America. We'll be all around the continent, and it will surely be a great tour for everyone. See you soon!"

Great f***ing band, 'Above the Weeping World' is my favourite melo-death album of all time.

I am excited for Halloween for the first time since Saw III, see you at the Toronto date. ;)
