Staff review by
Demonic Tutor

There is no need to say much about Finland's Amorphis anymore. Yes, they use to play Melodic Death until 1997 then turned into a one-of-a-kind skillful heavy metal/rock band. Silent Waters is only the second album since vocalist Tomi Joutsen joined the band to replace Pasi Koskinen, following 2006's Eclipse, which was an album that surprised a lot of people by its versatility.

Rating: 9 I love this album. It features some of my favorite songs by the band, including the acoustic ballad "Enigma", which I actually made my own cover of using the piano and a mellotron app i bought off of iTunes.

Rating: 9 I can't stand the fact that I discovered Amorphis only because Netta Dahlberg worked both with them and Elvenking. I feel the greatest idiot in the whole fucking world. Anyway, this album really blew me away, I discovered something I couldn't imagine. Great.

Rating: 9 Their best album since Tales.

Rating: 8 I am halfway through the album, and I am thoroughly enjoying it! The only song I had originally heard was Silent Waters, so I was surprised to find all the screaming and heavier songs. I really like all of it.
