How is this for awesome? One of my favorite male vocalists in Tomi Joutsen singing an Amorphis song with the one and only Anneke Van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering). To say that Anneke’s voice is amazing is such an understatement. Check out the duo doing a live rendition of “Her Alone” taken from the band’s Silent Waters album.
This live version comes from the band’s recent special shows, An Evening With Friends at Juhlaviikot – Huvila in Helsinki. At these shows, the band performed a special setlist with guest musicians and friends. These shows will be part of the new tour edition which is scheduled to be released on February 24, 2017 via Nuclear Blast. The package includes the entire album Under the Red Cloud with two bonus songs as well as the live tracks in Helsinki.
Anneke Van Giersbergen states: “I was honored and stoked that Amorphis asked me to perform with them at this special event. I have been listening to their latest album Under the Red Cloud non stop since it came out so you can imagine I said yes to the occasion wholeheartedly! Tomi is such an awesome singer and performer and I felt right at home singing with him. He and the band gave me full creative freedom to make their songs my own and do them justice with my vocal contribution.”
