NEWS: Infirmum suffer the violent sleep of reason?
“Sleep Of Reason” marks the first new material from Melodic Doom Death Metal band Infirmum since last year’s EP “The Great Unknown”. Melancholic, dark, gloomy, full of emotion describe the atmospheric journey with beauty and the beast through the darkness gifted to us by the musicians known for their previous works in Mourning Wood, Sanctuary of Hate, Begrim, Lordi, Children of Bodom, Sinergy, Arthemesia and Deathlike Silence…
Vocalist Anna Rose backgrounds the song: “This is a song that started taking its first shape a few years ago, before I even joined Infirmum. It is a song born of frustration, meant to express the despair of existing in an ever more uncertain world. While it is a salve, a way to vent all those feelings, it is also a herald of our doom. If I ever wrote an actual funeral dirge, this is it!”
Guitar player Timo Solonen continues:
“As soon as Anna joined Infirmum in the summer 2020, she told she had lyrics ready for a song called Sleep of Reason. She also had vocal melodies ready for the chorus. I did my best to compose whole song around the chorus’s vocal melodies and get the atmosphere to be right for the song based on the lyrics.. I think results are quite good but wasn’t easy I have to say. Teemu Mastovaara did arrangements for the cello and perfect job he did. Also Erna’s keyboards, Hanska’s drums, Joonas’s guitars and bass are excellent. Eliel’s growls works perfectly. And Anna? Well, you really have to love her voice. This is end of an era.”
