Today, Finnish melodic death metal masters INSOMNIUM released their new single “The Reticent”! The video to the brand-new track, which was again directed by renowned videographer Vesa Ranta, can be watched below.
Ville Friman comments: “The past year has been a difficult one. People have lost their loved ones, jobs and livelihoods. Hope has been replaced by fear, anxiety and uncertainty. We have all been forced to live our lives in isolation, detached both physically and mentally. This song is about all those feelings. An inner dialogue of hope and hopelessness. During this time, music has been a source of comfort and solace. Something to rely on and return to. And while we have become withdrawn and reticent, our music tolls now ever stronger.”
After reaching pole position on official Finnish album charts and hitting German top 10 with the acclaimed album Heart Like a Grave in October 2019, INSOMNIUM were once again supposed to entertain the legions of metal addicts all around the world. And that’s what these gentlemen did for the time being: there was definitely no absence of severe headbanging… well, until mid-March 2020 when the good old world abruptly closed its curtains. As of today, when wintry Northern darkness seems to be slowly giving a way to blooming flowers, INSOMNIUM return with the brand-new track “The Reticent.”
Due to the current pandemic, guitarist Ville Friman unfortunately wasn’t able to join the video shoot.
