Re-recordings? As in with the current line-up or is this just remastered?

Also, the new Katy Perry artwork is better... that cover makes me feel like I'm in some redneck walmart fishing isle.

I think it should be just remastered but let me do a quick check

EDIT: you're right, they re-recorded them with the current line-up

Wow they re-recorded all of these? I'm definitely checking this out. And I also think the artwork is pretty awesome.

Same here. Though I would have loved some songs from Am Universum here as well.

Is there some kind of significance with the large fish?

Re-recordings? Tomi on vocals with 'My Kantele'? SWEET.

As a huge fan of Tales from the Thousand Lakes I'm actually a bit skeptical about the re-recordings. Hopefully it'll turn out alright

I'm really interested to hear the re-recordings, especially Black Winter Day.

Sweet. I wasn't too big into their earlier stuff but maybe the re-recordings will change that. Against Widows is killer.

Hmm, it'll definitely be interesting to hear "Black Winter Day" and "Drowned Maid" with Tomi on vocals in-studio.

Fucking awesome album art, might buy but I doubt it considering I have no need to buy an album with a bunch of songs I already have.

This is true, but I'm really not sure how classic songs like Black Winter Day will sound with their current lineup..... I have a feeling they won't be as good.

Hmmm maybe it's just me and high production sensitivity but I always longed for Tales with better drum production and louder harsh vocals

It will be amazing to hear Tomi's vocals doing those songs. While I love Amorphis's old stuff, the vocals really were kind of weak. The live clips I've seen of them doing older songs with Tomi on vocals were really good. Also, this is a really good track list.
