Insomnium & Tribulation @ Močvara, Zagreb, 29.3.2018
29. March 2018 @ 19:00 - 23:55120kn – 140kn
Insomnium have already gained a lot of fans in Croatia following their previous performance in Zagreb where they were supporting Dark Tranquility. So it was not surprising that the announcement of their first headliner performance, which should have taken place in October 2015, caused enormous interest among the domestic metal audience. Unfortunately, the entire tour was canceled due to an illness in the family of one of the band’s members, so Croatian fans had to wait for a new opportunity. Meanwhile, Insomnium released some great albums, including a conceptual masterpiece consisting of one 40-minutes song called “Winter’s Gate” which strengthened their position as one of the biggest and most respected Melodic Death Metal bands of today.
On this tour, they are supported by stunning Swedish band Tribulation. They started their career as Old School Death Metal, but soon after they have shown that they are more than that. Adding gothic and psychedelic rock influences, they expanded their musical repertoire, giving critics reason to compare them with bands such as At the Gates and Mercyful Fate but also Hawkwind and even Led Zeppelin. That proved to be a winning combination, considering the album “The Children of the Night” had excellent ratings and took the highest places in the selection of the best metal albums in 2015, bringing them numerous world tours with bands like Paradise Lost, Deafhaven, Arch Enemy and more. A new album called “Tribulation” will be released in January 2018.
