Insomnium Premiere ‘While We Sleep’ Video Exclusively With Terrorizer

By on 7 April 2014


Finnish melodic death metallers Insomnium have teamed up with Terrorizer for an exclusive premiere of their brand new video for ‘While We Sleep’, the first single to be taken from their forthcoming album ‘Shadows Of The Dying Sun’.

‘Shadows Of The Dying Sun’ will be the band’s sixth album to date, and the first new material we’ve heard from them since 2011′s ‘One For Sorrow’ (excluding ‘Ephemeral’, the single new song that appeared on their 2013 EP of the same name, and also makes an appearance on this new record).

Guitarist and vocalist Ville Friman commented on the video:

Couple of weeks ago we travelled to Wroclaw, Poland, to shoot the first music video from ‘Shadows of the Dying Sun’. This time we decided to work with a Polish production company, Grupa 13, whose work includes the new Behemoth video amongst others. The song we chose for the video is called ‘While We Sleep’. It’s a wistful song with all typical Insomnium elements included – riffs, melodies, aggression, sorrow, grandeur and hope. We shot everything within one day and it was really a pleasure to work with such a professional film group. Everything went smoothly and we are amazed and very happy with the ending result. You really can’t complain when the film group provides you vodka schnapps between the takes. We sincerely hope that you’ll like the ending result as much as we do.”
