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!
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.
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.Read more ›

Insomnium delivers from front to back. If you're a fan of melodic death metal at all, you'll love this album.Published on December 24, 2013 by Amazon Customer
Like every Insomnium album, this delivers with great songwriting and musicianship, while failing in post production. These guys should find a new studio.Published on October 4, 2013 by Ahbin
My first mp3 album by insomnium which i loved so much.
I wanted to buy actual CD and placed an order but they didn't have it in stock.
I'll have to wait for it.
Probably one if their best albums yet! It has the strikingly beautiful melody mixed with the powerful riffs that you have come to expect from this incredible band.Published on February 6, 2013 by James Odinson
It's strange, Insomnium's albums usually sound so clean and crisp, with many musical layers able to be heard. Read morePublished on January 7, 2013 by McSethy
I'm new to Insomnium, and listening to this for the first time I should just be loving it, but I noticed a higher frequency buzz that was beginning to make my ears hurt. Read morePublished on August 17, 2012 by Matt
Insomnium is pretty much "the" melodic death metal band these days, and for good reason. Ever since their 2002 debut, they've been churning out record after record of prime... Read morePublished on May 25, 2012 by Zadion
I could really like this album but whoever put this CD together really did a number to ruin it.
Quite possibly this happened as someone tried to jack up the volume... Read more
