    Dark Tranquility - Insomnium, Special Guests Dark TranquilityWebsiteMySpaceTwitterLinks"Damage Done" is the much-anticipated sixth full length album from Gothenburg's own Dark tranquillity, a band that has become an institution within the realms of extreme Metal, seeing that they deserve full credit for originally kicking off the stylistic wave of melodic Death Metal which has become established and frenetically followed all throughout the world in the meantime. During their 13 years of existence, Dark tranquillity have always tried to constantly expand their musical borders and stray away from already-conquered territory, and "Damage Done" is certainly no exception to their own artistic goal, being a truly diverse affair showcasing a host of new approaches and inspirational sources. Compared to the electronically-tinged approach of "Haven" (2000) or the laid-back, lush melancholia of the (Swedish) Grammy-nominated entity "Projector" (1999), "Damage Done" is more technical and intense in feel; a direct and solid sound, yet with lots of complex arrangements and sonic structures emerging from below the surface. While not by any means being a sheepish "back to the roots" album, some of the aggressive aesthetics present in Dark tranquillity's earlier work have resurfaced, giving birth to some faster passages, pounding and inherently catchy throughout. From the relentless thrash-o-rama of opener "Final Resistance" to the sombre closing tones of "Ex Nihilo" (the first instrumental in the band's history), "Damage Done" runs the full gamut and showcases a hungry and confident band that presents absolutely no signs of musical exhaustion or willingness to descend from their position as a leading creative force in the metal scene. Recorded with long term producer Fredrik Nordstrm at Gothenburg's famous Studio Fredman facilities, the masterfully written and flawlessly executed eleven new creations on "Damage Done" are determined to fully please the passionate melodic Death Metal following as well as bringing new listeners into the very unique and charismatic sound of Dark tranquillity. Watch out for the band to embark on a massive string of tours following the release of this masterpiece of a new album: The damage is done, my friends!

InsomniumWebsiteMySpaceFacebookLinksNew album Across the Dark (2009) shows a band that knows its strenghts but isn't afraid to evolve. Crux of the music is still melodic death metal but nuances are giving it a unique flavor. Keyboards are overwhelmingly epic and there are some stunning clean vocals by Jules Nveri. Bit of folk metal, pinch of doom, some thrashing, a whole lot of timeless melodies and progressive twists and there you have it: ingredients of the masterpiece.

    Dark Tranquillity with Insomnium, Order Of Nine, Obelisk We know, we know...there isn't a single piece of writing that's so tedious and filled with hollow clichs, shameless ego stroking and thinly veiled sales pitches as the dreaded band biography. In our case, lots of texts about the D.T. history from various stages of our 20-year old career can be found on the web, and even the official ones, penned by the record labels or ourselves, usually contain factual errors, half-truths and inaccuracies that didn't seem to matter much at the time.Eventually we'll find the time to write an ber extensive band bio that will make even the most ardent trivia geek salivate with glee. In the meantime, we let the music do the talking and recommend a quick session with Google or Wikipedia.Another suggestion would be to purchase the "Exposures: In retrospect and denial" CD, which contains a lengthy essay about the band by noted music journalist Christopher Dick
