Insomnium - Unsung Lyrics




Beneath a silent stone
In cold caress of the earth
Where timeless sleep reigns
Where world is but a distant toll

No stars shine, no moon roams
No sun broods, no winds blow
No tunes chime amidst the bones
No prayers for the devil’s own

Night falls and dawn breaks again
Autumns and winters slowly pass
And all these earthly tremors
But a remembrance for me

Mine is this forgotten song
Buried deep and heard no more
Mine is this unhallowed sleep
Deathless wait under the trees

All the years in vain I fought
All my deeds have gone to nought
Unsung is the tale of mine
Mislaid 'til the end of time

Hidden deep under the vale of the moon
Entombed beneath the white flowers of death

Only the frail words
Written in the stone
Retell my name anymore

Only the frail words
Written in the stone
Recall my days anymore

    Want more? Weighed down with sorrow, through the shadows, lose to night, weather the storm, while we sleep, all fantastic.

    Rick Aasa

    @Aurumk1 i know this band quite well by now. unsung and shadows of the dying sun are my favourite songs of them.

    Badtothebones Gaming

    @Rick Aasa I found the song out to sea to be quite beautiful, but those two songs are also quite great.

    INSOMNIUM - Unsung , lyrics:

    Beneath a silent stone
    In cold caress of the earth
    Where timeless sleep reigns
    Where world is but a distant toll

    No stars shine, no moon roams
    No sun broods, no winds blow
    No tunes chime amidst the bones
    No prayers for the devil’s own

    Night falls and dawn breaks again
    Autumns and winters slowly pass
    And all these earthly tremors
    But a remembrance for me

    Mine is this forgotten song
    Buried deep and heard no more
    Mine is this unhallowed sleep
    Deathless wait under the trees

    All the years in vain I fought
    All my deeds have gone to nought
    Unsung is the tale of mine

    +Doxed ya they are .. \m/

    Akhihito Chakma

    Oh yeah Aditya Lone indian

  21. toddisawsomeable

    I personally greatly dislike death metal screaming like this but the tune and the way the song is written is super good and complex! This is the only death metal song I like and I even happen to enjoy the screaming part somehow!

    Aria Isara

    @ludovic heredia Hahaha it's exactly that!
    Now I keep trying to convert other people to metal, thinking they might be like me, metalheads who don't know it yet ^_^

    Aurumk1

    You should listen to metalcore friend, its all like this, listen to the darkest nights by as I liy dying, its awesome! also lose to night.

    Nirmal Babu

    It's not called screaming, it's called Sevaning. Only Nilo can do it.

    Brunetto46

    " i greatly dislike DM screams.." lol

    Mark Morris

    I agree with Aria - melodeath metal is very different from death metal. Singers in both genres use the death metal growl, but they use it in very different ways. The music surrounding the growl is also very different. I love Insomnium. If you dig this song, I recommend that you check out Arch Enemy, especially the new stuff after Jeff Loomis (Nevermore) joined the band.

  22. ΔΗΜΗΤΡΗΣ ΜΑΡΤΙΝΟΣ

    Listen to CREMATORY bitches!!!!!

  23. Sakk 96

    THE BEST BAND ON EARTH

    Stefania Di Giulio

    mauno Q I'm Agree with you!!

    Mishel Vaniev

    In the whole Universe.

    Ziaul Hoq

    Sounds like Avenged Sevenfold. But I like these guys too 🤘

    Rob East

    I agree 💯

  24. The Fading

    Sweet! \m/

  25. Alexandra Ruiz

    I just love them... I can't say or think any other thing. I TRULY DEEPLY MADLY (hehe...) LOVE THEM. <3

    Jon Bob

    @Alexandra Ruiz Pretty much an out of body experience eh? I get that too. [=

    Alexandra Ruiz

    <3 That's it!!

    Phoenix Seraphim

    They're simply among the best out there!

    MrCultforever

    @Alexandra Ruiz The imagery in their songs really takes you away, no matter where you are, they make you feel like you are there , be it a somber never ending night or snow covered landscape, they just craft their songs so well .

    Alexandra Ruiz

    So true!!! :3

  26. Propeller Klas

    @FFXIK you're comment should seriously be seen by every metal fan ever so they will realize all metal is good.

  27. Bianca ReCasino

    this song kicks so much ass

  28. sleskypok

    you know slipknot artists would probably kill you for that -_- don't take it as an offending thing i just said what could be true. and really you all slipknot fans are damn annoying :P

  29. Red

    i hate cleans, not matter how short they are, but this song is still amazing

  30. Damien Kovalt

    Crossover Metal? I think you mean Nu Metal and their self titled debut album was far better than Iowa, while still a fantastic album. It lacked the raw emotion of the first.

  31. stardestroyer19

    I love this band, but amon amarth have something special about them.

  32. LordRavenDenny

    You wrong buddy, Iowa is pure masterpiece. But dont forget Knots are crossover metal... yet All hope is gone is that.... shity part of metal... but still! Slipknot is a great band same as Insomnium, they're both great in different ways.

  33. metalmilitian1

    did you mean slipkpop?

  34. Stoned Sloth

    Not really a fan of slipknot but sabaton sound way more pop than slipknot. I like sabaton btw.

  35. veeaa

    Have to say that this song was disappointing. The first 30 seconds were something really amazing, thought I was in Insomnium heaven! Then it goes on with self repeating and monotonic tunes only to be broken by what's left of the beginning's beautiful part after 3 minutes. A few seconds of the end are nice too. This song has so much potential but not utilizing more the tunes in the beginning it doesn't become very re-playable. I think they should clean some of the songs. Sometimes less is more!

  36. Patruski

    Pfft. Fuck off.

  37. Laitharex

    Satan's Wishes Are Granted. SWAG. That is what "swag" means, douchebag.

  38. GothicReaper

    obvious troll is obvious.

  39. Victoria Phoenix

    I
    LIKE
    IT
    im in love with that song ^^

  40. metalpred

    We can't compare insomnium with slipknot. I think that the two are great but insomnium is just waow, I can't describe them. The problem with slipknot is that they're too commercial for metal, and than they have lots of poser saying that "slipknot is the most brutal", "slipknot is more metal than CC", "It is death metal",... THIS IS BULLSHIt and the people saying that are STUPID POSER. I like slipknot but I hate that someone say bullshit like that about them!
    Insomnium arelot better than slipknot

  41. DerToastBroad

    Anybody noticed the "Inception- Theme" Reference?

  42. Der Sven

    Wieso regen sich immer alle über andere Genres auf? Egal ob im Metal oder allgemeinen Musikbereich, ich höre auch nur Metal und Rock aber mir kann doch egal sein was die anderen mögen und was nicht.... Lasst die Musik einfach Musik sein (Jeder kann Musik für sich selbst interpretieren) ,egal ob es eueren Geschmack trifft oder nicht. Ich heul doch auch nicht rum weil andere Menschen Pop hören statt Metal auch wenn Metal für mich mehr ist als nur Musik, aber etwas Toleranz wäre angebracht........

  43. Der Sven

    My opinion too ^^

  44. NiggeliNG

    lol slipknot? we don't speak about pop bands here on a metal video.

  45. Patruski

    As you wish.

  46. Diego Sheish

    Don't let me catch doing that again.

  47. Patruski

    Yeah, I'm stupid and I'm sorry for replying back to you, your highness.

  48. Diego Sheish

    The stupid around here is the one that can't recognize an obvious troll.

  49. Tom Bombadil

    Can't understand that this song only got ~240k hits... there are so many emotions in one song, so strong ones :-/
    This is real metal... !

  50. mrdeliveryman

    3:23 - 3:47 I think we all know this is the greatest part in this amazing song

  51. Logan Hammonds

    His avatar looks like Charlie Sheen... He has to feed the trolls.....

    However I came here for the music.... Insomnium is fucking awesome! \,,/

  52. MrIcemancan

    the end of the song is awesome

  53. ante pereza

    slipknot is great band but not deep and magical like insomnium,after all there's no bad insomnium song...every fucking song is fucking art

  54. Bor Pinterič

    Don't feed the trolls, mate. ;)

  55. Arcorn9000

    Dat intro.

  56. Stoned Sloth

    Hell yeah. Be'lakor are one of my favorites as well. A long with Noumena, Mors Principium Est, Omnium Gatherum, In Mourning and Insomnium

  57. Stoned Sloth

    Swag is a word Shakespeare first used and I means to walk/behave in a stupid way. Just so you know

  58. Jesse Martin

    Hey kid, shove a metal knife up your ass. And die with your swag.

  59. BlueBanana5000

    That`s not true! You also need skills do be a good rapper: You need "flow" that`s the interaction between rhymes, rhythm and enhancement and this isn`t as easy as it looks like! To say good rapping is easy is just as saying metal is just sinless screaming and noise! There are also some good rappers with good textes and musical skills! The sad thing: The world prefers mainstream crap and rappers WITHOUT any skills before good rappers and Metal Bands with real skills like Insomnium or Be`lakor!

  60. TheMatt3z

    I like Amon to, but these guys are somewhat more melodic i think, both Great bands, i cant believe tht the world prefers bullshit like the mainstream and rap crap befor these artists, you gotta have skill to do this, as a rapper you just talk how miserable your life is and getz paid for it...And thats one for sorrow...

  61. eaglewings

    How the hell are you going to compare Slipknot with this band in the first place?

    Wait, I take that question back. Here's a new one. Why the hell would you compare music? It just shows how narrow-minded you are, thinking that your opinion about music matters. It doesn't. Neither does mine, or anyone elses. Music is art, it's a matter of personal preference.

  62. jackrussel20000

    you obviously cannot respect talent. this band has actual melodies and meaning to the lyrics, if your incompetent mind could understand them you should actually read them instead of blindly following a shitty band who bounces around on stage like fucking clowns

  63. ShoeEaterThe2nd

    dont feed the troll

  64. Reid Blaine

    i like slipknot too but "swag masks". Wrong genre. You're not making your argument very strong.

  65. jackrussel20000

    well see there's a difference between melodic death metal and mindless garbage called "slipknot"

  66. Salad Fingers

    If you feel the need to compare two dramatically different bands like those two, I'm pretty sure your knowledge of the genres is very, very limited. Slipknot is fine, but I don't think any bands like Insomnium ever even gave a thought about 'being as good as slipknot'. Get your stuff straight, kid

  67. Nick Harmer

    I love the Insomnium sound, instantly recognizable which is pretty good for a MeloDeath band. Omnium Gatherum are similar though I guess

  68. Syed Husain

    Actually, Slipknot is utter bullshit..never liked them...

  69. xXNaglfarXx

    I like Slipknot,mainly the old harder albums,but you can't compare them with Insomnium.Insomnium put much more Epicness and melody in their songs,Slipknot songs are more simple.

  70. Raziel Emeritus

    Holy shit. This band just may be the best discovery I've made since Revocation!

  71. Patruski

    Are you brain dead? Also who else are you calling idiot? because your "idiot" is in plural form.

  72. Patruski

    Well, that was just my opinion and you gave yours.

  73. Rex Talbot

    Man, of all the videos you decided to troll, why melodic death metal? You couldn't have picked some shitty mallcore instead?

  74. blackwater5267

    what is that top comment about?

  75. David Naegele

    No seriously this song is astonishing, the melody and clean vox are so great, love the gut vox too .. guitars are awesome .. i mean Insomnium rocks my world right now! :D

  76. David Naegele

    I DO PIGS IN THE BUTT

  77. Ryan Zhu

    NO, it is not...You will change your mind after listening their other albums

  78. Antares

    Music doesn't have to be complicated to be good.

    ..oh, Fuck power-metal.

  79. NewHorrorfield

    Easy now, Le Spy is just trolling :)

  80. Patruski

    You mean Shitknot, right? btw "swag" is only used by d-bags.

  81. Chase Davis

    sorta reminds me of dethkloks vocals, but not as weak and has some melody, guitar is pretty origional. im more of a machine head or Lamb of god, or Devildriver person. checkin these guys out cuz my gf likes them......... i can live with this. its pretty good stuff

  82. john vasilantonakis

    well, take a look at his channel i dont think he is trolling

  83. PanicFox

    I think he's trolling.

  84. Louis-Philippe Fournier

    troll harder

  85. Arngothor61192

    Yah, these guys are ineffable kings of the genre or what have you.

  86. Baikal

    So you are insulting this band AND slipknot at the same time?

  87. 321SpikE

    Best song of "One for sorrow" imo

  88. lilredneck355

    Troll. He has Le in his username

  89. TopiAS06

    i think omnium gatherum is more elecric, when kalmah and noumena isnt. but hey, who gives a fuck?, they are still great bands.

  90. NiggeliNG

    no, omnium gatherum is the closest that a band can get to insomnium wihout being an unoriginal copy. kalmah is more extreme power metal, they are actually pretty far from insomnium.

  91. TopiAS06

    how about kalmah and noumena?, and many more. omnium gatherum not, its too electric

  92. Akhamesh

    0/1000000000000

  93. SargonnasIncarnate

    Shitty band, the dwarf said, running on stubby legs towards the warm embrace of J. fucking Bieber. Haha! I piss on you, snotling.

  94. JustForFunGamingPro

    Nice try lol

  95. Chris T

    Not sure if troll or douche....

  96. Le Spy

    Shitty band, this will never be good as slipknot. Slipknot got at least swag masks on.

  97. NiggeliNG

    amon amarth are actually pretty different from insomnium... i think the band that's the closest to insomnium is omnium gatherum

  98. GRAND LOOP

    yeah they are fucking awesome!!

  99. TrooThrunks

    I listen to alot of Amon Amarth too :). Also one of my favorites.

  100. mastercilander

    This is my #1 band. I've never really found one I like better. I like a lot of bands but these guys just get more epic every time and it's hard to fathom how they manage.
