Insomnium Belzebubs come from the frostbitten north, or rather from the virtual pages of J.P. Ahonen's comics. How well do they transition from ink to sound? I mean, from pixel to sound?

Third video from these funny guys of Insomnium Belzebubs...
Unfortunately, this time it's not quite as entertaining as usual.

Wow, where did this come from? AOTY so far - I think so.

While the comparisons with Insomnium are valid (is that the same vocalist?), this release does have a slightly darker sound to it than the Melodeath gods.

It's not confirmed BUT:
- If we would compare vocals - they're basically the same
- both came from Finland
- Hubbath (the bassist) play on warwickesque bass guitar, so did Niilo, so I guess it's not a coincidence

Not at all.
Above that, they're on the same label (Century Media) and Dan Swanö has been mastering Belzebubs' and Insomnium's last album.
If Niilo is not involved in Belzebubs, than I'm a Dutchman. It's just too obvious.

The band confirmed in the comment section of one of their facebook posts that it is Niilo on bass and vocals and also Markus V on guitars. Also I think Skullcraft might be Lindsay Schoolcraft from Cradle Of Filth but I'm not completely sure.

Thanks! Can you provide a link?
You are absolutely right concerning Lindsay Schoolcraft, she did the backing vocals on four tracks.

The debut album from @belzebubsofficial "Pantheon of the Nightside Gods" has been out for a few days now and the response has been wonderful and overwhelming. Again I want to thank @jpahonen and the gang for inviting me to be part of this project and bringing the character Skvllcraft to life.

Who are the musicians behind this? It's enjoyable

I can't escape the feeling that at least one or two members of labelmates Insomnium are involved.
The vocals are all too familiar and the core team just has to be a bunch of melo-deathers contributing their skills, rather than a trve black metal outfit proving comedic talent.

It was obvious to everyone that Insomnium is behind this. The vocals are 100% Insomnium, the music is 75% Insomnium, the lyrics are 90% Insomnium. There are words in their lyrics that clearly show they were written by Niilo.

Uch like any version of media, metal is subject to its fair share of gimmicks. There are a lot of parody acts and one trick ponies throughout the various genres, subgenres, and mash ups. That doesn't necessarily mean they should all be ignored out of hand, nor does it mean they have nothing to contribute to the medium UPSers Login
