The single itself perfectly shows Insomnium's two faces. The first song with guestly appearance from Mikael Stanne - well known from Dark Tranquillity - is a pure fury but with certain dose of self-control - they might be totally pissed off, but they are definitely not going to give in to anybody. Well, in fact they clearly explain it in a moving lyrics. Musically the song is full of energy, great riffs and perfectly fitting drums- and acoustic-bridges. But hey, having Insomnium and two of the greatest growlers you couldn't complain even if it lacked some perfection;)
The b-siding Beyond the Horizon is a completely instrumental song with shared acoustic/electric guitars, stunning flat-drum rhythm and ambient-strings outro. Though it is an orthodox version of more melodic Insomnium it is totally charming, especially intro guitar melody and that remarkable rhythm that just makes you beat it on your chest/leg/wheel.
Seriously, if new album will have those songs and some more simillary good tracks - it may outshine all planned great releases of mighty, mighty 2011...
