"In addition to Marshall+EVH combo, we're also using Mesa Single Rectifier and my seven-stringed Mayones to add some more depth and fatness to the sound.
"The new material is definitely more varied than before. For example, we're flirting a bit with death/black metal vibe with some of the songs. Nevertheless, everything sounds very much like Insomnium and I guess that's mainly due to our 'trademark' melodies.
"We're splitting rhythm parts pretty much equally with Markus [Vanhala] and also try out different guitar arrangements as we go.
"All in all, the mood is very relaxed and we're making good progress without too much pressure and stress."
