Finnish death metallers Insomnium have premiered a lyric video for their song “Ephemeral”.
“Ephemeral” is a track off of Insomnium’s forthcoming album.
Guitarist Ville Friman had this to say about the video:
“Lyric videos can be often a bit boring but I think this video really makes an exception to this rule; all visualizations complement the lyrics and make the message of the song even stronger.”
The band had this to say about the Ephemeral single, which includes “Ephemeral” and three acoustic tracks:
“After the success of our last single ‘Weather the Storm’ we decided that it would be a good idea to record some new material this summer before releasing the actual new full length album. This was also a good opportunity to explore different studios and work with different people. Just to explore our sound a bit more in terms of production. And here we are finally; happy to introduce you our new single, ‘Ephemeral’ [drums recorded by Kimmo Perkkiö at SF sound (FI); everything else recorded by Teemu Aalto at Korkeakoski Studios, Kotka (FI); song mixed and mastered by André Alvinzi and Jens Bogren, respectively, at Fascination Street Studios (SWE)]. It was a nice challenge to work on the instrumental side of INSOMNIUM and come up with music that has a more cinematic edge to it. Hope you enjoy it as much as we do.”
That single will drop on November 19.
