Insomnium – Winter’s Gate European Tour 2017
Finland is an evocative land. The very mention of it conjures visions of endless darkness, long, cold wintry nights and an almost oppressive bleakness. It is within this icy cauldron that the soul of INSOMNIUM was born. Their music is as epic as it is melodic, as melancholic as it is majestic and as brutal as it is beautiful. To call INSOMNIUM a Death Metal band is to do them a grave disservice.
The band supported ‘Above The Weeping World’ and ‘Across the Dark’ with a furious touring schedule, traversing both the States and Europe with the likes of AMORPHIS, KATATONIA, ENSLAVED and SATYRICON. They capped off the album cycle with a co-headlining tour with their friends GHOST BRIGADE and a spring 2010 direct support slot with DARK TRANQUILLITY. In September 2016, INSOMNIUM released their seventh studio album, ‘Winters Gate’, which is based on the award-winning short story by vocalist Niilo and a 40 minute-spanning song. So be prepared for an epic night when INSOMNIUM comes this January to town.
