That cover of The Doors is awful! Glad to see most of the rest of the tracklist - I only really ever liked Amorphis up until Elegy.

Simply can't wait to hear this. Don't think they will top the originals, but then again real interesting. The old tracks performed live sounds awesome at least

Haha, I sort of agree! I usually show it to people if I want them to have a laugh

This sounds to me like "I want more money from the fans" kind of release

My thoughts exactly - especially so close to the release of the dvd last month .

Although I am reliably informed this album has been made due to many requests from fans ....

I'm excited for this! The new singer is so much better than the old one! I'm definitely purchasing in this one.

And yes, this was made out of requests from fans. They were thinking of redoing whole albums at one point, but i'm glad they just decided to only do select songs! \m/

YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i was planning to send a request to them that they would remake the old albums but i dont need to do that anymore

Yeah the new vocalist is great and I sure think this was a nice thing to do.
They are pushing material out in a nice way

The base idea could be seen as similar to what Iced Earth did with Days of Purgatory: introduce old stuff to newer fans. The Amorphis fan base is a bit divided right now you know

Well.. Touching the old classics is always riskful. For me the result is either 1) OK, this is done well and some songs i might listen even in the future instead the old ones.. or 2) WHY, this sucks in some way..

Amazing, having heard Joutsen sing live these old classics, I have to say it's safe to say this will be an amazing record. All those tracks are classics.

Is it September 15 yet?
Vitriolic Hate - 13.08.2010 at 16:46  
The cover artwork is pretty cool!

This really has the potential to kick my ass
