The Top Ten Songs on Insomnium's Winter's Gate
The album closer is #1 for me - Metal_Treasure
A great opener. - Metal_Treasure
From 24:05 - 28:30, is one my favourite Insomnium's segments. It kinda reminds me of the brooding atmosphere that was perfectly captured in Above the Weeping World, which is one of my favourite melo-death albums. Winter's Gate was quite an ambitious and emotional release from the band and the flow of passage from one segment to the other were impeccable. It's that sort of an album, which will demand your complete attention right till the end and will stay in your head for a long time if you allow the music to seep into your soul - Arhaan95
This is a softer song with more clean vox and a jazzy/folky intro - Metal_Treasure
