Amorphis New Album out in September
Finnish metal act Amorphis has started the year off by demoing new songs for their upcoming 12th studio album due out in Autumn. The band has started pre-production this month in Helsinki with producer Jens Bogren. The album recordings will begin in April at Bogren’s Fascination Street Studio in Stockholm.
The lyrics are written by Amorphis’s spiritual mentor Pekka Kainulainen. “Like Kalevala, they are descriptions of natural phenomena, seasons and the human mind. Reoccuring situations where hope and uncertainty alternate. Attempting to gain advice from higher powers. The poems do not form a complete story per se, but they are drawn together by a certain theme. We live under a red cloud and once again, time weighs us,” describes Pekka Kainulainen.
The new album will be released in autumn, when Amorphis will embark on a world tour, starting from their native Finland. Amorphis will be touring Europe with Nightwish at the end of the year.
This past December, Amorphis completed a successful Central European ”Retro” tour where the band played their legendary “Tales From The Thousand Lakes” album in its entirety to celebrate the 20th anniversary of said record. As a special treat for the fans, Amorphis also played songs from their debut album, which they haven’t played in more than two decades. In Germany, the media praised the tour of its authenticity and its ”time travel to 20 years ago” aspect.
Commented the band: “The tour set pays homage to the “Tales From The Thousand Lakes” album and did not include a single song released after 1995. It was great to see how boldly Tales… functions as a whole.“
