Insomnium - Winter's Gate


Melodic Death Metal / Progressive Metal

Century Media

There were many excellent melodic death metal albums released this year, but the strongest may have been Insomnium’s magnum opus Winter’s Gate, a 40-minute metal suite cut into seven tracks. It’s a masterclass in how to craft contemporary melodic death metal, incorporating everything from symphonic elements, spoken word segments, ridiculously catchy groove riffing, blistering lead guitar hooks, a great use of dynamics, and a sense of epic grandeur that never feels overbearing or pretentious.
