INSOMNIUM’s Markus Vanhala comments on composition: “‘Revelation’ marks a milestone as a songwriting debut of mine as a ‘new guy’ for INSOMNIUM – as this is the first song I composed in this band. The song intro is flirting a bit to the Swedish metal side, but soon turning back towards the Finnish grand mourning in INSOMNIUM-esque way. Vesa Tolonen who produced this lyric video found indeed the epic inner soundscapes of this song really well and flew with the music thru the forest and lakes over the moon and towards the sun!
Hopefully many will find it, many will keep it and many will turn towards our sun!”
Niilo SevÃ¤nen comments on the lyrics of “Revelation”: “These were the first lyrics I finished for this album. Some poems by Finnish poet Uuno Kailas have influenced this text. The theme is not very dark or death metal in the end but… shall I say hopeful or empowering. I’ll leave it up to you to make your own interpretation.”
The band also recently launched a trailer for Shadows Of The Dying Sun here.
