Finnish melodic deathsters Insomnium have announced a European tour for early 2017 to support their forthcoming release 'Winter’s Gate' - a concept album that is made of one epic 40 minute song, which they are going to play in its entirety on this tour!
Frontman Niilo Sevänen comments: ”We are very excited to get back on the road again! Last autumn a serious illness in my family forced us to make some drastic decisions and for example cancel one tour altogether. Since then things have progressed very well and steadily so everything looks a lot better at the moment. We’ve only made festivals and short trips this year but in 2017 we’ll be back on making longer tours all over the world.
The forthcoming Winter’s Gate album has been mixed by Dan Swanö and it sounds amazing. Playing this 40 minute monster song will be an interesting challenge in a live situation but we can’t wait to do this! This European tour in January will be a rare opportunity for our fans to hear the whole epic song live, so it will be a very special show every night.”
The new album will be released via Century Media Records on September 23rd, 2016. It is built around the short story 'Winter’s Gate' (Talven portti in Finnish) by vocalist & bassist Niilo Sevänen, which won awards and nominations in Finland back in 2007 and 2008. It’s a story about a group of Vikings who set out to find a fabled island west from Ireland, even though the winter is drawing near.

Winter Days of Metal: Rockin' the winter of 2017
Once upon a time there was a wintry festival, located in the cover of a majestically towering mountain – this festival was called Winter Camp. It took place in a peaceful and secret area of charming Slovenia. No one knew if it was ever to return – Until now.
Hell yeah, it’s back! Seven years after the first event, Winter Camp will come back in a fresh new design. The organizers of the biggest Slovenian festival, the MetalDays, will host the new festival in 2017 – Winter Days of Metal.
In the lovely surroundings of beautiful Bohinj valley, just right under the arm of Slovenia's highest mountain Triglav, accentuated by breathtaking Lake of Bohinj, a new adventure is born. In March, the quiet village of Bohinjska Bistrica will welcome metalheads from all over the world. The event’s main location will be in Dvorana Danica of Bohinjska Bistrica. You will be able to enjoy real winter holidays merged with heavy, breaching metal sounds.
The skiing ground of the Vogel Ski Resort will offer you an amazing skiing experience on natural snow, simply spectacular views and very well-maintained ski slopes. Those who prefer some nice relaxing Spa are invited to Bohinj Aquapark, offering swimming pools, jacuzzis, saunas and everything else that is needed for a relaxing stay.
Winter Days of Metal will rock the mountains from March 20-26, 2017.
The ticket sale starts on August 10, 2016. You can find more information about ticket prices, accommodation packages, festival packages and the first band announcements at the festival’s webpage as of August 10 at www.winterdaysofmetal.com. Until then you can find all information on the festival's Facebook page.
Prepare for your extraordinary winter holidays in magical Slovenia!
