Amorphis (FIN)


Amorphis has been working on their distinctive melodic metal for a while now, but they're still going strong as ever. Being a huge international success and a big influence to numerous younger musicians, it's impossible to exaggerate the importance of the band to the development of Finnish metal. Even though the group has gone through some big changes during the years, they still only sound like themselves. That's a definite sign of a classic.

The latest album of the band, Under the Red Cloud, featured both the heaviness of their early years as well as modern lightness, and the upcoming 13th album seems to be in the same vein. The band is currently in the studio with their returning bass player Oppu Laine, and some surprise vocal work has also been laid down by the lovely Anneke van Giersbergen. It's definitely going to be another great record, so see you at the gig, metalheads!
