Insomnium is a heavy metal outfit that emerged in 1997 with a melodic death metal sound. Based in Joenssu, Finland, the group took its time devoloping its progressive, doom-tinged style and collecting a regional following before releasing its first LP, In the Halls of Awaiting, in 2002. Infusing its music with dark lyrical themes of pain and loss, the band slowly rose to national attention and embarked on its first headlining tour of Europe in 2011. Along with that year's studio effort, One for Sorrow, the tour catapulted Insomnium onto the world stage.
