Insomnium commented:

“Needless to say, we are really stoked about the new album! With ten songs and over an hour of music we really feel we have something special in our hands. There is fury and aggression, doom and gloom, heartache and longing. The whole spectrum of Finnish man’s emotions from despair to regret. In the name of Nordic collaboration the Swedish wizard Jens Bogren has been doing marvelous job with the mixing and mastering, so this is the best sounding Insomnium album ever.

We are also very excited about the upcoming European tour that takes us around the continent in great company. It will be a truly killer package with the support from The Black Dahlia Murder and Stam1na. Surely a night not to be missed!”

The Black Dahlia Murder Planning To Record New Album This Summer

It looks like The Black Dahlia Murder will be hitting the studio this summer to record their new album. Guitarist Brian Eschbach confirmed the news during an interview with Heavy New York:

“We’re writing new music now, and we’re heading into the studio this summer. We’re excited to present some more stuff soon. I don’t think it will have too much to do with the last album, other than it’s the same band playing it. It’s not, like, a sequel or anything like that — just some more Black Dahlia Murder songs.”

The band will release their debut album “As I Drink From The Infinite Well Of Inebriation“ on June 14 and the effort’s first single “The Colorless Capsules” can be streamed below.
