2 Down With the Sun

I just voted for this song. Insomnium's albums are all way too perfect and all songs are too beautiful and good. Too hard to choose one of them.

This with Where the last wave broke are their best work in my opinion.

What an intro, keeps driving all the way through. My go to for sure.

Two words to say "killing riffs"

3 While We Sleep


Awesome Guitar-Riff!

Amazing pairing of vocals and guitar work throughout this absolute tune. Atmospheric and awesome.

Perfection.. Got me to almost cry when I heard the song for the first time, then I cried when I learned the lyrics.. Sad, Happy, Joy, and sorrow all at the same time.. Too beautiful..

5 Into the Woods

This is the song that made me initially interested in Insomnium. Started me down the path to really loving this group. Beautifully crafted, good development and build in the song.

Definitely one of my all-time Insomnium favorites. The lyrics, melodies, and atmosphere are great.

If I had to introduce Insomnium to anyone, this song would be my top choice.

6 The Day It All Came Down

A brilliant song. Expressing deep emotion, one of the top songs by this band. Insomnium will forever be the epitome of Melodic Death Metal at its best.

Both the melody and lyrics are amazing, sets the standard for what is in my opinion their best album!

The riffs are so close to perfection, with such emotions and vocals... - Ananya

Incredible riffs, stays in shape all song long

7 In the Halls of Awaiting

Just Wow! This song give me chills...

Greatest song by a long shot. Needs to be at the top of this list and all others.

This is the standard in which this genre should be put up to.

This should be number 1 by a long shot. It is by far the most melodic metal magic from any band ever m/

Simply quality. Lyrics beautifully written and the vocals express them extremely well. The music itself, especially the drumming in this song cannot be faulted.

An amazing band, which has so many great songs, they can even designate this terrific song as Bonus Track ;))

I can't understand how can be this incredible song possess too low! It must worth the top 5 position... It is one of the greatest song by Insomnium & even shoots far better when Dark Tranquillity's Mikael Stanne had featured in this song... It's A song of great emotion, great melody, great growling n great screaming!

How to make an already awesome song even better? Add Mikael Stanne

14 Where the Last Wave Broke

This song does not belong here.. Its top 10 material guaranteed

Really good composion of the song is.. This song should be on top of the list

15 Ephemeral

This is what I expect from melodic death metal. Heavy, ear thrashing and melodic riffs, pounding drums, growled meaningful lyrics, and excellent composition. This song gave me goosebumps first hearing it, which rarely occurs with music.

Once you get past the excellent music, the lyrics hit you.

I love the atmosphere of this song, really great one.

I simply love that this song pierce deep into your soul, it screams out a simple concept "life is one bla, bla bla...we're all gonna die bla-bla" but with an incredible mix of rage and sadness that stuns, when I listen to this I' m in a completely other world... Simply magnificent

16 One for Sorrow

Really amazing song, as are all of theirs, but this one stands out the most for me. It was also the first song from "One for Sorrow" on the Nuclear Blast Youtube channel.

Kick ass song should be in top 5.. - nooreldeen

This song is one of their best... The drums in this song are out of the world... The growling... The guitar... All of it packes in this masterpiece

Everything up to about the 4 minute mark is perfect. Then ending, however, is the most beautiful thing I have every listened to.

22 The Harrowing Years

Insomnium eased my stressful life by making this song.

I love this and Where the Last Wave Broke from Across the Dark.

I'm surprised that no one added this mournful gem.

This song is so underrated. The melodies are heart-warming and very memorable. Every time I listen to this songs, it takes my mind o a place somewhere very far beyond.

Brutal @ first, but so deep and complex, just amazing after several times hearing it

In my opinion the best song of Insomnium, it's melodic like all the Insomnium's song but this one has something that really makes it better than the other ones.

Has a really catchy solo throughout... Love the way the chorus and how it talks about having no hope in the purest way possible...

32 Bereavement

The intro is simply one of the best I have ever heard, it is powerful and sets high expectation for the rest of the song - and it doesn't disappoint. The song's lyrics express deep, raw emotion which are complemented beautifully by the music itself. In my opinion, the best song Insomnium have produced to this day.

33 Song of the Blackest Bird

Song of the Blackest Bird is in my opinion the most emotional song of all. It's able to make you feel empowered, angry and regretful, not sure if combined or one at a time.

Sad themed song. Great melody. Deserves to be in top 10

34 The New Beginning

Amazing song

35 Weighed Down with Sorrow

The most beautifully melancholic song to listen to on the darkest of days.

36 Daughter of the Moon

The yearning in this song, the guitar which sounds like a pleading cry, never fails to break me down. Niilo sings with such conviction, making the listener truly feel the despair of the loss of a loved one.
