Insomnium‘s new record Anno 1696 is due out February 24, and the band is now streaming their latest single “White Christ” featuring Rotting Christ vocalist Sakis Tolis.

Anno 1696 is a gateway into another world. This time around, Insomnium tells us a tale based on a short story by Niilo Sevänen, woven with sorrow and the last crumbling vestiges of hope, plus wrath and morbid lullabies. Welcome to 1696. Welcome to hell. This is an age of unrest. The age of great famine in the North.

“The witch hunt is in full swing all across Europe and the gruesome witch trials have even reached the remote and majestic landscapes of Finland and Sweden. ‘The Torsåker witch trials were a horrible source of nightmarish inspiration,’ Sevänen says of his ghastly muse. ‘All that talk about 70 women beheaded in this small Swedish parish? It’s real stuff from history!’ he groans. ‘And as if that weren’t enough, there are also some very dark tales of cannibalism and child murder from the years of the great famine.’ Stories don’t get any more metal than this.”

Pre-orders for Anno 1696 are available here. Enslaved, Insomnium, and Black Anvil will hit the road next April for a North American tour at one of the many dates below.
