Today marks the official release of Halo, the anticipated new full-length from Finland’s metal legends AMORPHIS!
Following rave reviews worldwide and being voted #1 on the soundchecks of leading metal outlets like Metal Hammer (D), Rock Hard (D), Legacy (D), Spark (CZ) and Metal.de (D), the band’s stunning fourteenth studio album transcends the realms of metal and rock with its sheer profoundness and musicality. Considering the band’s three-decade journey at the forefront of innovative metal music, it’s difficult to comprehend how AMORPHIS manages to raise the proverbial bar time and time again, presenting a more than worthy finale to the trilogy that began with 2015’s Under The Red Cloud followed by 2018’s Queen Of Time.
To celebrate the release of Halo, today the Finns have unveiled a 3D art video for their album opener “Northwards” which showcases the diversity and especially the progressive elements of the new record. The video was animated by the band’s cover artwork designer himself, Valnoir for Metastazis.

Halo was recorded, produced, and mixed by Jens Bogren while mastering duties were handled by Tony Lindgren.
The record is available on CD, 2xLP, cassette and collector’s boxset. Preview and purchase Halo at THIS LOCATION.
