Insomnium have officially entered the studio to begin the recording process for their new album. The band are currently tracking drums with engineer Kimmo Perkkiö at SF Studio. After that, they will move to Teemu Aalto Music Productions in Kotka, Finland for further sessions. Once its recorded, Jens Bogren will mix the effort at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden.
Guitarist Markus Vanhala commented:
“Again when the days grew darker and the nights became colder, our path led into the dark. We checked-in to our traditional forest cabin-hq in the southern Finland for a new material rehearsal camp and (un)reality-check. We came out with 10’ish songs full of that good ol’ Finnish melancholy, sorrow & misery and now it’s time to wrap it all on tape for you peeps to hear ’em. Cannot wait to start the studio process and let the creative processes go up-and-down again!”
Vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen added:
“Exactly so! We have a pile of great songs in our hands and we can’t wait to get these recorded and finished. I would say the album will be the kind of dreary and wistful Insomnium that people probably might expect but we also have a few surprises in store. Lyrically the album will revolve around Finland’s bleakest and most sorrowful tales and songs. So this time we are really going into the blackened heart of Finnish gloom!”
The album is expected to be released thus fall.
