Insomnium, Finland's sensational melodic death metal artists are bringing their signature sounds to the Gramercy Theater!
Insomnium was formed in Joensuu (Finland) in 1997 by vocalist/bassist Niilo Sevänen, guitarist Ville Friman, drummer Markus Hirvonen, and guitarist/drummer Tapani Pesonen. The band's been through a few line up changes over the years and it currently consists of Niilo (lead vocals and bass), Ville (guitars and clean vocals), Markus (drums), and Markus Vanhala (guitars). While their musical style can be broadly classified as melodic death metal (a subgenre of death metal that employs highly melodic guitar riffs, often borrowing from traditional heavy metal), it also includes elements of doom metal (an extreme style of heavy metal music that typically uses slower tempos, low tuned guitars and a much thicker or heavier sound than other metal genres) and progressive metal (a fusion of heavy metal and progressive rock that combines the loud aggression and amplified guitar driven sound of the former with the more experimental, cerebral or pseudo classical compositions of the latter). They’ve had a stellar career with 7 studio albums (5 of which were top 10 hits on Suomen virallinen lista; the official Finnish charts), 4 singles, 2 demo tapes, and they've toured with many renowned bands such as Dark Tranquility, Before the Dawn, MyGRAIN, and Paradise Lost.
