Product Description

Product Description

Some time has gone by till the last Amorphis album 'Silent Waters' hit the world, but Amorphis have used their time very well. The new album 'Skyforger' appears to be the most mature sounding album the band has made yet. Melodic, melancholic Rock/Metal performed in absolute perfection. 'Skyforger' is the third album with Tomi on the lead vocals, and probably the most epic one. Ten tracks once again inspired by the Finnish mythology and folklore, mostly mid tempo, with the nice and usual Amorphis trendmarks: piano, twin guitar riffing, vocal variations. The more you listen to 'Skyforger', the more you get into it. And of course the amazing artwork really fits the concept. Put in short: The new Amorphis album is a metal masterpiece with roots in progressive, folk and melody.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Amorphis, what did you expect? 18 Jun 2009
Format:Audio CD
In my opinion, this is the best metal album of 2009 so far. Amorphis have created another masterpiece full of beauty and amazing melodies. The whole album is highly enjoyable, catchy and very profound at the same time. Tomi Joutsen`s vocal performance is superb and fits the music and poetic lyrics perfectly: mostly focused on the clean territory, it is very melodic, deep and emotional in every song. On the other hand, when he decides to growl he sounds very powerful. Of course nothing would matter if the music itself wasn't that good! Amorphis create really unique and wonderful music, distinguishing themselves from the rest. The album offers various moods; there are great guitar melodies, keyboards, progressive elements, folk elements, gothic overtones, heavy riffs and a solid rhythm section. Your collection will be much richer if you add Skyforger to it!

Note: there has been a small problem with the initial copies of the digipack version but their company seems to have sorted it by now.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best metal albums of 2009 27 Sep 2010
Format:Audio CD
Once in a while an album comes along that makes you wonder how your collection can ever have seemed complete without it. An album of such effortless brilliance that you are reminded just why you love music in the first place. An album that moves you in ways very few can; and which puts a smile on your face and a glow in your heart each time you play it.

I have followed Amorphis since the groundbreaking Elegy, a body of work that remains fresh 14 years later and which, at the time of its release, offered me the first taste of how metal could be fused successfully with other styles to create an entirely new sound. The wonderful, psychedelic-tinged Tuonela was a highlight for me in the years that followed, after which the ideas seemed to run dry. This once innovative band became somewhat bland, lacking the spark that had made them so distinctive in their earlier days.

A change of vocalist seemed to revitalise them, and a couple of decent albums (2006's Eclipse and 2007's Silent Waters) saw a move towards the quality of their earlier work, albeit without quite the same display of inspiration and creativity.

With Skyforger those missing elements have returned. The style is predominantly metal (of the melodic Finnish variety) but every shade of the complex Amorphis sound is allowed to shine. From soft piano, acoustic guitar and clean vocals to heavy riffing and (occasional) death growls, the album is beautiful and melancholic yet powerful and heavy. It captures Amorphis at their best, bringing together the most successful elements from their 20-year career and combining them into a varied and well-structured whole.

3.0 out of 5 stars Metal/Progressive 7 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Again I liked certain tracks but found that the vocals were somewhat difficult to listen to.as they did not seem to be audible to me in what was being said.Some good guitar riffing but not I felt up to other Nordic bands such as Nightwish,Therion and Gazpacho who all seem to have an individuality that rises above the others in this field
