Staff review by

After "Far From The Sun" Pasi Koskinen decided to leave the band. Many of their fans seemed disappointed with the fact that he was no longer the one standing behind the microphone of Amorphis. As for me, being an Amorphis fan for years, I saw this decision as something very positive and the right move for the band after the personal big disappointment of "Far From The Sun". To strengthen my positive views on the new Amorphis period that was slowly unfolding, all that was remaining was to find out how the new singer sounds like and, finally, bear witness of their brand new album, "Eclipse".

Rating: 10 Eclipse is a great combination of various emotions and several different musical styles.
Very well done!
Still it is always over too fast.

Rating: 8 This is an awesome album! Probably my second or third favorite by the band (behind Skyforger and possibly Silent Waters).

  I'm not really familiar with Amorphis, but "Brother Moon" is such a great song. Very Finnish (whatever that means), cachy and melodic.

Rating: 10 Amorphiksen Tales From The Thousand Lakesin rinnalla, tämä on Amorphiksen paras levy.
