The album Heart Like A Grave  to be released October 4th

With the second single Finnish melodic death metallers Insomnium are releasing the title track of their new masterpiece Heart Like A Grave, out October 4th, 2019. Watch the stunning video, filmed in the beautiful Finnish landscape of Koli national park, here:

Insomnium comment:

Heart Like a Grave is the title track of our 8th album, woven of sorrow and longing. It is looking back towards the golden days of youth, when things seemed brighter, and there was still hope of better days. A theme so predominant in the Finnish lyrics throughout the ages.

The music video was shot at the epic locations of Koli national park near our hometown Joensuu with directors Vesa Ranta and Aapo Lahtela and Kaira Films team. It continues the same story that began in Valediction video, so these two are bound together.”

Heart Like a Grave is available as

  • Ltd. Deluxe 2CD Artbook,
  • Standard CD Jewelcase and as
  • Gatefold 2LP + CD (various colours).
