Album Review
Jani Liimatainen’s addition seems to have had positive effects on the band, and everyone sounds in fine form. The music often sounds lush and full, and you’re never overwhelmed by the presence of 3 guitarists or subjected to an overly layered wall of sound. The riffs and harmonies are quite memorable and the solo-work is beautiful and poignant. There’s a good mix of heavy crunch and mellow, moody noodling and everything flows pretty well. Nilo Sevänen feels more forceful than usual, at times sounding like Omnium Gatherum‘s Jukka Pelkonen, which helps stamp the death into their melodeath style, and impressive performances can be found all around.
There was a time when you could expect several killer cuts per Insomnium platter along with some less stunning selections, but here the trend is toward the very good rather than merely good. Heart Like a Grave isn’t Winter’s Gate II, nor should it be. It’s another high quality release from a melodeath powerhouse proving they still have some magic and a few surprises up their sleeves. Raise the melodeath revival tent and get you some graveheart pie. It’s best served ice cold.
