Nicolas RESSOT Un EP qui laisse présager le meilleur ! Clair comme de l'eau de roche, aussi bien dans les parties atmo que saccadées, clair comme le chant qui alterne avec des parties qui arrachent... un contraste saisissant ! Favorite track: Insomnium III: The Fifth Spire.

Will Messer This Ep is very addictive to listen to, and and has an interesting metal sound, one that tries, and effectively blends Final Fantasy type sounds with the screaming vocals of metal. I personally love it, especially for a first EP. Favorite track: The Genesis Tree.

Track Name: The Genesis Tree
I have woken up from this dream and what I see disturbs me.
We are slaves of our own design, we are not who we claim to be.
So it has come to this, such a pity, they sleep under such soft melody, alone.

You want this, you want to dream; It's so much sweeter than reality.
I could save you all, if I cared. Are you worth saving to me?
Why do you matter?
Your time for awakening, will forsake you another day.
Your mind is fading, into oblivion.

(Suffering was endless, unless it was possible to find a way out. To become, enlightened)

So it has come to this, such a pity, they sleep under such soft melody, alone.
Track Name: Wandering Flame
A divergent plane,
More so than there ever was.
So fade out myself.

Physical design, recreate in his mind.
Perceiving all directions, dimensions beyond our time.

Wandering so pointlessly,
We are defeated by his ultimate creation:
Everlasting Eraser.

Architectural distinctions slowly breaking far away.

Wandering so pointlessly,
We are defeated by his ultimate creation.
Track Name: Insomnium I: Portal
Sleeping wide awake
Collected sounds superimposed by automation

We are casting ourselves into an endless array, we have become our own enemy. We are drowning, we are dying. I know what it's like to be on your own, I know the consequence, never again.

So far, we lie here immobilized by our fears of one another. Consequences of inactivity: suffocation.

We ride on backs of giants built on the history of men.
Time will fold upon itself again.
Track Name: Insomnium II: Koladolg
Track Name: Insomnium III: The Fifth Spire
Towering spires, Imposing their will. Subtle reminders of where our dependencies lie. How could we defy; their existence serves to enslave us all. Enslave us all.
The fifth spire, it peers in our minds, the perfect prison built deep inside.
Such feeble minds to lend our cares away, to be following word without question.
You make me feel fucking sick, I can't believe that you have done this. You've lent yourself away.
Please my dear you must hold onto fear, don't let them degrade you, decay you. Retain yourself.
My brothers, hold onto fear, your conscious is what they have come for. (Have come for your soul)
Passing thoughts of a feeble mind collected, dissected.

Don't, don't lose hope
Disempowered to the cosmos
But they can't have your minds
Trust, trust in hope
The fifth spire hears you?
The choice is yours to design.
