Amorphis - New Album Details

Amorphis celebrated Kalevala Day (aka Finnish Culture Day) by releasing the finalized details for their upcoming new album, The Beginning Of Times. The band's tenth studio album will be released at the end of May through Nuclear Blast Records.

The first single off the album is entitled You I Need, and is scheduled for release in April. Also in June, Amorphis will embark on the extensive The Beginning Of Times Tour, scheduled to continue through 2012. Date will be announced soon.

The band describes the album as follows: "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 in his home studio in Kuopio. Like its predecessors, the album was mixed by Mikko Karmila. Its cover artwork shows Travis Smith's magnificent interpretation of the mythological birth of the world from a duck's egg."

The Beginning Of Times 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

Amorphis - Tentative Release Date And Tracklist Revealed

Mark Gromen from BW&BK wrote the following special road report, revealing more details regarding Amorphis' upcoming new album, scheduled for a May 27th release through Nuclear Blast.

"In Sonic Pump Studios, on the outskirts of Helsinki, Amorphis premiered their latest twelve track opus for an assemblage of foreign journalists, as well as homegrown fans. Even the album artwork is still in transition, as an egg hovers in the clouds above a groove of snow covered pine trees, the familiar arched Hammer Of Thor symbol is crudely depicted on the shell. Neither label reps, nor management had heard the album prior to the listening session! Bold move.

The still unmastered disc, rumored to go under the title of Beginning Of Time (the last song on the album) will be finalized within the coming week.

Tracklisting (running order still subject to change): "Mermaid", "My Enemy", "You I Need", "Battle For Light", "Three Words", "On A Stranded Shore", "Escape", "Reformation", "Soothsayer", "Song Of The Sage", "Crack In A Stone" and "Beginning Of Time".

The songs feature plenty of death vocals from Tomi Joutsen, as well a couple of new wrinkles."
