INSOMNIUM Releases Visualizer Video For “Stained In Red”

Insomnium continues the epic story of “Anno 1696” on their addendum-like EP “Songs of the Dusk” – out today – , featuring 22 minutes of music and three more journeys into a dark and foggy past. And to celebrate the release of the EP, the band has shared the visualizer video for “Stained In Red”, which you can watch below.

“‘Stained in Red’ was written during the pandemic as an antidote to lighter, acoustic-orientated stuff we were coming up with. After the more mellow “Argent Moon – EP”, I wanted to write something more aggressive and heavier”, says Ville Friman (guitars). “Some influences from Opeth and Gojira can possibly be heard on this one, as these bands were on heavy rotation on my playlist at that time.”

Mixed by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Orgone Studios) and mastered by Tony Lindgren (Fascination Street Studios), “Anno 1696” and the matching “Songs of the Dusk” are by far their most accomplished, emotionally rattling, soaring achievements.

Originally “Songs of the Dusk” was a part of the Ltd. Deluxe 2CD Artbook of “Anno 1696”, but it is now available separately as a Ltd. CD Digipak, LP with etching on side B, and as Digital EP. Order it HERE.

The band comments: “As the album would have been too long, we left these three tracks out on the initial version, yet they are part of the ‘Anno 1696’ story and complement it and some of the gaps are being filled. ‘Songs Of The Dusk’ offers an alternative ending, so people can decide which kind of mood they prefer. This version is a bit more hopeful and less tragic, at least on a general Insomnium scale – everyone is dead…except the wolves.”
