Over the last two decades Insomnium has slowly but surely made itself a household name among the melodic deathsters. Formed in 1997 in a somnolent town of Joensuu, in eastern Finland, these stern men have ever since redefined the boundaries of the genre. Two highly acclaimed demos already set the standard and in 2001 the band signed to UK label Candlelight Records.

At this point the founding members Markus Hirvonen (drums), Ville Friman (guitars) and Niilo Sevänen (vocals and bass) attached guitarist Ville Vänni to the band. The triumphant line-up had been born. Debut album In the Halls of Awaiting (2002) introduced a young and fierce band that combined aggression and violent riffing to melancholic atmosphere.

After 14 years and 6 studio albums, in 2016 Insomnium came out with their 7th record, via Century Media Records, called "Winter's Gate". It is a concept album consisting of a single epic 40-minute track, and it is said to be about “a group of Vikings who set out to find a fabled island west of Ireland, despite the treacherous winter drawing near."
