Amorphis album details

2011-03-01 by Magnus Altkula STAFF | 33 Comments
Amorphis will release their tenth studio album, titled The Beginning of Times, at the end of May through Nuclear Blast Records.

The guys had this to say about the album: "The new album is the most challenging Amorphis album so far in terms of both music and lyrics. Its central character is the iconic hero of Finnish mythology, Väinämöinen, whose tale has been masterfully retold by lyricist Pekka Kainulainen. The Beginning Of Times was produced by the band; vocals were recorded under the guidance of Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot) in his home studio in Kuopio."

Tracklist:
01. Battle For Light
02. Mermaid
03. My Enemy
04. You I Need
05. Song Of The Sage
06. Three Words
07. Reformation
08. Soothsayer
09. On A Stranded Shore
10. Escape
11. Crack In A Stone
12. Beginning Of Time
13. Heart's Song [digipack bonus]

Only thing i've heard from them was Skyforger. (and that's only cause a friend of mine kept bugging me to listen to it.)

I played the shit out of Silver Bride, but the rest of the album? eh.

I have always liked these guys, but honestly their old style on their first 3 albums or so was the best.

HSThomas u suck donkey dicks. Amorphis are an awsome band, and Skyforger was their best out of their 3 most recent, with their new vocalist, imo

I kind of feel like that with the exception of Silent Waters (which is damn near perfect) nothing these guys have done are particularly noteworthy.

Their last album is one of my favourite albums of all time. I hope it's up to those standards, at least :D

Tales, Elegy, Tuonela + Silent Waters were excellent but I hope the latest is a lot better than Skyforger.

I get so confused about this - everyone bashes Skyforger and praises Silent Waters. I think SW was boring and Skyforger was well done and insanely catchy.

Skyforger was good, SW was a little better... but Eclipse is their best with the new vocalist.

Why all the Skyforger hate? The middle of the album was nowhere near as good as the start/finish, and the bonus track sucked, but still. Solid album.

Agreed with Butkuiss, I thought Skyforger was great. Damn excited for this album.
