Our friends from all over the world voted actively in our album poll and the results are clear: The number one fan-favourite Insomnium album of all time is Shadows Of The Dying Sun. So we shall give you… The Shadows Stream. We will play the entire album and then some more. With all the chit-chat the show will last something like 80 minutes. We are sure that we are going to deliver a killer stream for all you people out there, wherever you are. So join us on Saturday 24th April, open a beer or two, and let the music flow! See you soon, friends!

Insomnium recently released their new single, “The Conjurer”. The video, which was once again created by renowned director Vesa Ranta, can be seen below. Click here to stream the single on all platforms.
The band commented: "We haven't been idle during the pandemic. 'The Conjurer' is a tragic tale of jealous and searing love that opens this new chapter for Insomnium. Monumental composition by Markus Vanhala that reaches its peak in the soaring dual guitar solo. The wintry music video was shot in the dreamlike landscapes of northern Finland by director Vesa Ranta and his team. More shall follow..."
Due to the current pandemic, guitarist Ville Friman unfortunately wasn’t able to join the video shoot.
