INSOMNIUM
ABOVE THE WEEPING WORLD
CANDLELIGHT

Insomnium connects a good cross-section of Euro metal on their latest nine-track endeavor ABOVE THE WEEPING WORLD. With obvious Opeth influence reared on "Last Statement" and a Children of Bodom by way of Amon Amarth delivery on "The Killjoy", when this Finnish quartet's melds metallic properties, it yields a durable yet somewhat uninspired listen. Perhaps finding their own niche instead of forcing two or three styles into one cluster would suit this band's creative side better, but if you're looking for a sturdy understudy for what rocks the overseas metalfests year after year, check this one out.
