Insomnium is a Finnish melodic daith metal baund frae Joensuu, Finland. They are influenced bi doom metal, playin sangs aboot sorrow, daith, loss, an mournin. They also incorporate elements o nordic / norse fowk muisic an symphonic muisic intae their soond. Their name refers tae a category o nightmares/visions in Medieval Europe.
