Editorial Reviews

2011 album from the Finnish Heavy Metal heads. One For Sorrow is such an amalgamation of styles that pigeonholing them into a single category would be to rob the band of its true complexity and ignore the very essence of its sound. Recalling Art-Metal titans Cult Of Luna at one turn and brutal visionaries Amon Amarth at others, One for Sorrow displays the true musical breadth of a band that has clearly come into its own.

Biography

Insomnium biography 2009 .... Over the last decade Insomnium has slowly but surely made itself a household name among the melodic deathsters. Formed in 1997 in a somnolent town of Joensuu, in eastern Finland, these stern men have ever since redefined the boundaries of the genre. Two highly acclaimed demos already set the standard and in 2001 the band signed to UK label Candlelight Records. ... Read more in Amazon's Insomnium Store

I have been a fan of Insomnium since the very beginning, and "In the Halls..." still remains one of my absolute favorite albums of all time. I have been introducing people to this band since I first heard them, and the response is always the same: sheer wonder and delight. I'm so pleased to see the band continuing to do well and perfecting their unique sound. It's not often that a band can kick your ass and make you admire the beauty of it all at the same time. This is a band that needs to be heard to be believed, and I am convinced, after 33 years of metal music, that my ear is tuned in to the excellence that only this music can create when it's power and beauty are harnessed by respectful, skilled practitioners. You wanted the best? Well here they are. Insomnium - best in the world at what they do.

This album blew me away...Insomnium seems to be one of the few bands now a days that album after album puts out great Metal. They really know how to blend beautiful acoustic passages with great melodic guitar rhythms. You seem to be drawn into their world as you listen. At times I get so drawn in that when a song finishes I totally forget where I am and once i come around again it just puts a smile on my face. Its just beautiful music really, one that before you know it you'll hear the entire album and wanting a lot more.
This album deserves to be heard like the reviewer before me said, and sucks to see only 2 reviews thus far when it really deserves so much more, but in due time i guess/hope.
Five...Ten...a hundred + STARS all the way!! Great work Insomnium ...AGAIN!

keep it metal-
CHEERS TO ALL!

Released late in 2011, One for Sorrow is the fifth studio album from Finnish melodic death metal band Insomnium. I have a couple of their previous albums and found them enjoyable, but I never quite got the band the way so many other fans seem to. I picked up One for Sorrow recently though, and as soon as I pressed play, I could tell this was anything but your typical melodic death metal album.

With One for Sorrow, Insomnium takes their melodic death metal sound right up to the edge of doom metal territory. The melodies are more mournful, the keyboards more haunting, the vocals - especially the clean vocals - more somber. I'd place the overall sound of this album closer to doom/death bands like Daylight Dies and Novembers Doom than the usual melodic death influences, though there are a lot of similarities to Dark Tranquillity here as well. Insomnium hits the perfect balance between the fast and melodic and the somber and heavy, and the whole album is drenched in this gloriously depressing atmosphere. Like being in the heart of some immense thunderstorm, One for Sorrow just seems to rage all around you and draw you deeper into its center. It has a sense of emotion that few albums ever reach, and that is only intensified by the occasional acoustic passage or tranquil interlude that moves the listener along to the next explosion of grief and rage.

I have to agree with the reviewer who pointed out the problems with the sound quality of this album. His one-star rating was way off-base, but there is something - and I don't know if it's the mixing or something else - that makes the album a little harder to take in. I don't know enough about the technical side of things to adequately explain it, but it bothered me enough that I almost took off a star.

This album is much less generic melodeath than their past albums, and that can be good or bad. The songs on this album change from pure melody to old school melodeath.

For example, "Decoherence," a slower instrumental piece with a orchestral melody in the background sounds like something a contemporary post rock band would come out with. The opening song, "Inertia," has definite similarities to bands like Explosions in the Sky or Pelican.

On the flip side, songs like "Through the Shadows," and "Song of the Blackest Bird," are some of the best pure melodeath I've heard in a long time. The guitar riffs, the grooving rhythm; it's just perfect. The vocals are some of the best I've heard from Insomnium since "In the Halls of Awaiting." There is a good mix of death growls and clean singing that just works well with the music.

Insomnium doesn't fail to disappoint. If you like any of Insomnium's older albums, pick this up.

I'm an old dude who grew up on metal. Back then it was all about Maiden and such and so melody and an awesome voice were vital. I didn't even know about death metal til much later on, and I just could never get into the grunt / growl style of vocals. Some bands seem to have a good mix of the "ugly vocals" coupled w/ excellent music though, and Insomnium is one of them. I think maybe it's because of the mixing; the vocals don't drown out the music. Powerful album. Heavy and nuanced.

Insomnium delivers from front to back. If you're a fan of melodic death metal at all, you'll love this album.

Like every Insomnium album, this delivers with great songwriting and musicianship, while failing in post production. These guys should find a new studio.
