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."

Good news for me. Absolutely love the heavier Amorphis songs. Having said that, Skyforger was a masterpiece. Psyched!

Can't wait! Amorphis has never had a bad album. Skyforger was wonderful.

Awesome news! Really didn't like Skyforger, but there was some decent moments. Looking forward to this for sure.

It is humanity who must pay homage to the greatness of the Universe... not the Universe to the human narcissism.

Just what I was hoping for. Skyforger was amazing, but they need to mix these melodies with the heaviness of the previous (or even their early) albums!
