Several notable Finnish metal musicians have joined forces to launch I Am The Night, "black metal rooted in the classic early 90's tradition." The band is comprised Markus Vanhala (Insomnium, Omnium Gatherum), Janne Markkanen (ex-Omnium Gatherum), Okko Solanterä, and Walteri Väyrynen (Paradise Lost, Bodom After Midnight), and their video for new song "Hear Me O' Unmaker" can be viewed below. "Black metal art has been a continuous and serious pursuit in my personal life since my early teenage years", explains Vanhala. "In The Nightside Eclipse, Storm Of The Light's Bane and De Mysteriis Dom Sathanas opened the gate to the dark side for me years ago, as can be heard from the music we make with I Am The Night."
