"Songs of the Dusk" EP to be released on November 3rd +
new music video and single out now

Let us take you back into the dark and troublesome past of Northern Europe, a time of witches, of superstition, of bloodlust and frenzy. In November, we will continue the epic story of “Anno 1696” on our addendum-like EP “Songs of the Dusk”, featuring 22 minutes of music and three more journeys into a dark and foggy past.

“We simply had eleven great songs, and we thought that this material is too good to be ‘just’ bonus tracks, Niilo Sevänen states. “They are part of the big story, so you can think of them as the director’s cut material that tells a little extra. For those who want to have more.”

Mixed by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Orgone Studios) and mastered by Tony Lindgren (Fascination Street Studios), “Songs of the Dusk” was originally a part of the Ltd. Deluxe 2CD Artbook of “Anno 1696”, but it is now available separately as limited CD Digipak, LP with etching on side B and as Digital EP.

Today marks the release of the title track, “Song of the Dusk”, that is available on all digital platforms.

The band comments: “As the album would have been too long, we left these three tracks out on the initial version, yet they are part of the ‘Anno 1696’ story and complement it and some of the gaps are being filled. 'Song Of The Dusk' offers an alternative ending, so people can decide which kind of mood they prefer. This version is a bit more hopeful and less tragic, at least on a general Insomnium scale - everyone is dead... except the wolves.”
