On February 11th, AMORPHIS‘ anticipated Halo opus will finally see the few rays of light that these days have to offer concluding the band’s current album trilogy with a worthy finale. Videographer Sam Jamsen visited the Finns in the studio to film a documentary about the making of Halo. The band now unveils the fourth episode in which singer Tomi Joutsen speaks about the vocal recordings with Jonas Olsson and Jens Bogren, discusses why he used more growls on this record, and how Pekka Kainulainen’s lyrics came together.
View the episode HERE.
Halo — which features artwork by Valnoir (Alcest, Paradise Lost) — was recorded, produced, and mixed by Jens Bogren while mastering duties were handled by Tony Lindgren.
