Insomnium Premiere “Godforsaken” Music Video

Insomnium have premiered a new video for their new song “Godforsaken.” This track is from the band’s newly released album “Anno 1696.”

Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:

“This shows the epic side of the album and is taking the listener through the sonic snowstorms and shamanistic plays. I truly love the shamanistic vocals of the beautiful soul Johanna Kurkela who did a perfect job on executing this vision to perfection. We salute you, Johanna! Probably my own favorite on the album, besides ‘The Rapids‘.”

Bassist/vocalist Niilo Sevänen continued:

“Vanhala‘s composition and one of the most epic songs in this bunch. Here we have the renowned Finnish singer Johanna Kurkela performing the female vocals. Lyrics are from the point of view of the main protagonist, Arvid, who tries to solve the mysterious deaths in the small village.”

Guitarist Ville Friman added:

“Also one of the oldest demos we had ready for this album before the pandemic hit. The original female voice sample was elevated to another level by Johanna‘s vocals. First time we have used female vocals on any Insomnium song.”
