Insomnium semi-surprised us with a new single and video, titled “The Conjurer”. That’s available through Century Media, and it’s as epic and impressive as you would expect. Insomnium continues to do no wrong. Pick up the single here, and watch the video below.

There’s a real chance you may not notice any difference, but all the same, we bring you a pairing of a choice album with a favorite libation. Drink from the cup of heresy.

Good morning, it’s time to metal. Here’s some news you might have missed from yesterday:
