Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
In Somnia was formed by our vocalist and lead guitarist Simon and our drummer Mattias in 2013. Later this year Dominik at the synths, Patrick who plays the bass guitar and Tobias on the 
second guitar filled the line up. We're 5 friends from the most beautiful place in Austria, a little town in the Alps called Lienz.

How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music? 
It's something between melodic thrash and death metal with great symphonic and also a few classic rock parts. Everyone of us has his own favourite bands and is influenced by other genres or styles of music, so it's really hard to pick one out.

Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
I think we are able to fulfil the wishes of many metalheads of different kind of genres. Our sound combines so many great parts and different styles, although we keep up going straight on at our "red line" and own style and creations.

What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media? 
In 2014 we had our debut with the full album called "Withered - Frozen - Perished". A great record with a lot of very good reviews. A worldwide distribution of the physical and digital version of the CD followed via the label "7hard". We were happy to see that our local news promoted and reviewed it, which is not casual for a band or our genre. Also the famous metal magazine "Legacy", as many other (digital) metal promoting magazines wrote articles about our first release.

Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We had a lot of gigs at our home town and close by locations and a few in nearby provinces. We're happy that almost all of them were a success and we made new fans and friends there. At the moment we are searching for bigger concerts to increase our fan base and make friendships with other bands.

What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are a young band, motivated to play live, everyone plays his instrument perfectly and is able to show a great live performance. Our style of music is absolutely incomparable and the upcoming record "For The Harvest" will continue where "Withered - Frozen - Perished" stopped, just better.

What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
The next big milestone is the release of our second full album called "For The Harvest". We are already during the recording process and sure it will be a masterpiece. In 2017 we want to hit the stage in big cities and hope to get around Europe to show the people what good metal music sounds like.

Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
You can find us on facebook at facebook.com/InSoMusic and listen to our songs on Youtube or get the physical or digital copy of "Withered - Frozen - Perished" at Amazon, or the music dealer of trust at your town.
