Nice to see Amorphis touring more regularly in NA. I recall that it took them about 10 years to come back to Montreal a few years back.

I wished the guitars were just more dominant in the sound, maybe that's why I left out the last records. They were okay, but not as good as the first ones with their new singer.

That new video is very cool though. Wouldn't mind if Anneke joins the band forever. :)

This band isn't for me anymore. I had trouble even going through the entire thing.

- spins Am Universum and :beer: -

I liked Am Universum actually a lot. Haven't heard it for years.

I got a few songs in on the the new one. Like the last few, the songwriting isn't as strong as stuff up to (and including) Skyforger.

I think I might like the newer stuff more if they dropped the growls and went full Katatonia. Not that I mind aggressive vocals, it's that his clean voice is so damn good.

After about five spins I think it is a spectacular album. Browsing the online reviews it looks like the consensus is that they knocked it out of the park with this one. Metalstorm has it as the #1 album of 2018 so far and currently #35 of all time! Too early for those sorts of proclamations but an undeniably exceptional record.

Here's my thoughts. Amorphis is still a top 3 band for me. Maybe even my favourite band of all time.

But I agree that there's a certain something in the last 3 albums that's different from Eclipse to Beginning of Times. Maybe it's the lack of the Marco production. Or maybe they've gotten a little formulaic when their clean vs growl vocals. Tomi also doesn't do that "rough clean" vocal style anymore, which I miss. So yeah, I slightly prefer those albums to the last 3 (especially Circle, which is my least favourite Joutsen album), but there are songs on the new ones that completely destroy songs from the older albums. And really, Tuonela still kind of reigns as my favourite. So naturally I'd be cool with a toning down of the growls.

Queen of Time is likely to be my album of the year though. It's fucking fantastic. Just not quite as fantastic as Eclipse, Silent Waters, or Skyforger. I also think it's easily better than both Red Cloud and Circle.

I think that the two newest along with Eclipse and Silent Waters are their best post Elegy output. I really like the balance of heaviness and melody that they have been finding recently. I felt like some of the other Jutsen albums were a little light in the pants, and dragged in spots. That has not been an issue on these last two though, and I am really enjoying it.

I'd probably put the last two above Circle and Beginning of Times, but below Eclipse and Silent Waters. Skyforger contains some of my favourite songs the band has ever done, but it's as strong all the way through. But boy are the good songs good. I think Queen might end up ranking higher than Skyforger eventually, but I have to give it that "new album probation period". It's just very fucking good.

They are a great live band! A good mix of old and new, though I wish they'd play more from their mid era (Tuonela).

Got mine for Sept 17th. :beer:

Guess what I am listening to in the truck right now as Matthew drives us to the next Overwatch League matches in Burbank in about an hour?

I should have understood
I should have seen it coming
The signs on the road have changed
The fires on the mountain died....

There are so many facets of my life that this chorus can be applied to.... damn......
