RHAPSODY Warriors of Ice

INSOMNIUM Every Hour Wounds

At 20th March Insomnium played in Budapest so I took a time before their show and have one chat with Nillo Sevanen about the actual tour with Tribulation, their latest full-length Winter’s Gate, future plans (like a new album, some plans for the upcoming festival season), and we also did some chat about some things from…
