AMORPHIS will be touring in support of their Halo full-length, released in February through Atomic Fire Records. Thirty-one years after their inception, AMORPHIS still proves to be the musical fountain of youth, an extraordinary band constantly reinventing itself without abandoning its mystical roots. With Halo, they deliver an astonishing album that deserves to be played everywhere, transcending the realms of metal and rock by its sheer profoundness and musicality.
The vibrant, lively, and touching beauty that is Halo highlights their musical and storytelling mastership on a once again soaring level: It’s a progressive, melodic, and quintessentially melancholic heavy metal masterwork plucked from the fickle void of inspiration by original guitarists Esa Holopainen and Tomi Koivusaari, bassist Olli-Pekka Laine, drummer Jan Rechberger, longtime keyboardist Santeri Kallio, vocalist Tomi Joutsen, the band’s long-standing lyrical consciousness, Pekka Kainulainen, and a selected group of world class audio professionals led by renowned Swedish producer Jens Bogren. Considering the band’s prolonged journey in the forefront of innovative metal music, it’s difficult to grasp how AMORPHIS manages to raise the proverbial bar time and time again, presenting a more than worthy finale to the trilogy begun with 2015’s Under The Red Cloud followed by 2018’s Queen Of Time.
Preview and purchase Halo at THIS LOCATION.
“…a terrific journey and an unmistakable sign of AMORPHIS‘ continued supremacy.” – Metal Injection
“Too inventive to be beholden to a formula, but deeply entrenched in an aesthetic that has served them well for decades, AMORPHIS sound imperious throughout… every song here has the potential to stir the spirit, and every one of them contains a dash of esoteric ingenuity.” – Blabbermouth
“…an extraordinary achievement in the history of a band already known for some of the most consistently great output in metal. It’s a true quantum leap in hook writing and melding epic pop construction with prog and jazz passages seamlessly and effortlessly.” – Distorted Sound
“…a logical conclusion to a trilogy of albums that explores the Kalevala in a way that is unique to AMORPHIS alone, and it does so by striking a wonderful balance between dark and light / heavy and atmospheric / stripped and embroidered…” – Last Rites
“…heavy and bombastic, sounding like the natural conclusion of the band’s two previous albums. The combination of Under The Red Cloud’s heavier approach and Queen Of Time’s orchestral adventures offers the base for a very enjoyable listening experience.” — Angry Metal Guy
“The band continue with their trademark style, adroitly mixing death metal heaviness with power metal, symphonic metal, folk elements, and progressive tendencies and in the process showing us why they continue to be the preeminent melodic death metal band on the planet.” – Heavy Music HQ
