Insomnium have released a new track from their upcoming album One For Sorrow. This track, Unsung has quite much raised my expectations from this album. It is available for download for free for those who are registered to their newsletter, so sign up RIGHT NOW! Maybe it’s on torrents but this way is legit :D. Nearly five and a half minutes long, it is pure bliss.
About the track, an overall fast paced and intense song. I love the strength with which this song starts and the way with which it continues is amazing. It is so refreshing to hear a new Insomnium track, even though Weather the Storm was quite recent too.
Something that struck me was the firstly the lack of the typical acoustic element in a majority of their songs. The songs just entered into a heavy melodic riff with Niilo Sevanen’s vocals just blending in with the soundscape (one of the few bands that have pulled that off successfully). No fancy acoustic guitar of atmospheric keywork. Secondly, this clean vocals section that pops in somewhere in the middle (3.30, i checked). I still don’t know whether I like that. But yes, It does not hinder the fact that this song is amazing trailer to whats eems like another epic album.
