Insomnium Premiere New Song “The Witch Hunter”

Insomnium have premiered a new song titled “The Witch Hunter.” This track is from the band’s band’s new album “Anno 1696,” which will be released on February 24.

Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:

“This is a good example of a song growing and finding its own wings during the studio process. This one definitely has a cinematic feel; the storyline needs the essence of journey moving forward. In fact, I made a Finnish vocal demo for this one, reading and screaming Niilo‘s storyline, but only the name stayed and translated from ‘Noidanmetsästäjä’ to English. But that’s another story and a secret version never to be found by ‘outsiders’… :)”

Bassist/vocalist Niilo Sevänen continued:

“This is Markus Vanhala‘s composition; it actually does not really sound like the archetypal Insomnium song and has some very interesting elements. One of the songs that improved the most in the studio in my opinion – and became one of the singles. Lyrically it continues to tell the story from the Witch Hunter’s point of view.”

Guitarist Ville Friman added:

“For me, this song has a really strong cinematic feel to it, and I can easily travel into the story in my head when I close my eyes.”
