Insomnium, Shear and Kuolemanlaakso - The Circus, Helsinki, 10/05/14

Insomnium launched their new album Shadows of the Dying Sun to the Helsinki audience, filling the venue with the harmonious echoes of their Finnish melodic death metal to culminate in their "best show ever". Opening for them was melancholy death-doom act Kuolemanlaakso, and the melodic power metal of Shear.

Nummirock Metal Festival 20-21-22 June 2013, Kauhajoki, Finland

Held yearly over three days of midnight sun during the Finnish midsummer, the Nummirock Metal festival summons pilgrims from all over the world to three days of music, camping and partying in the wilderness. With a Finnish-band heavy line-up, this festival delivers lasting memories and is well worth the trip if you find yourself in the Nordic region one summer.

Insomnium - Across the Dark (Candlelight/Earsplit)

Once described as a vulgar amalgam of Children of Bodom and early In Flames, Insomnium's music seemingly reached a zenith of creativity and overwhelming hard-frozen emotion on Through the Weeping World. Across the Dark has broken that almost impenetrable frontier.

Here's a small disclaimer. I am probably the biggest Dark Tranquillity fan known to man. I own all their records.
