Amorphis Announces New Album September

Amorphis

If you are not an Amorphis fan, you have no idea what you are missing. The Finnish melodic death metal titans will be touring with Nightwish and Arch Enemy soon, but they have announced that their upcoming 12th studio album will begin pre-production this month in Helsinki with producer Jens Bogren. Album recordings will begin in April at Bogren’s Fascination Street Studio in Stockholm.

The lyrics are written by Amorphis’s Pekka Kainulainen. He shared: “Like Kalevala, they are descriptions of natural phenomena, seasons and the human mind. Reoccurring 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.

This past December, Amorphis completed a successful Central European tour where the band played their legendary Tales From the Thousand Lakes album in its entirety to celebrate the 20th anniversary of the album.
