You already had a taste of new material from the Finnish metallers Insomnium on their new EP Ephemeral but their new album is yet to come. The band is currently recording the successor to One For Sorrow and has been updating regularly on that process. The drum parts were already recorded and now it's time for the guitars. According to the band, the new material is more varied than before.

The group's latest update by Ville Friman: "We've now recorded rhythm guitars for 5 songs. In addition to Marshall+EVH combo we're also using Mesa Single Rectifier and my seven stringed Mayones to add some more depth and fatness to the sound. The new material is definitely more varied than before. For example, we're flirting a bit with death/black metal vibe with some of the songs. Nevertheless, everything sounds very much like Insomnium and I guess that's mainly due to our 'trademark' melodies. We're splitting rhythm parts pretty much equally with Markus and also try out different guitar arrangements as we go. All in all, the mood is very relaxed and we're making good progress without too much pressure and stress. "

Cool! I hope that the production will have more clean and clearer sound, didn't like the dull sound of the "One Of Sorrow" album

No way, a band promising variation in upcoming material. That's a first.

Totally agree with this, didn't like the production. Would like to hear an album as good as Above The Weeping World again, we'll see how it comes out!

I love (and only have) their 3 lastest albums, so all I'm asking for is the same quality

The thing with Insomnium is musically you know they aren't going to sound like a completely different band. The only real questionable thing about their consistency is the production.
