I have decided to work my way backwards. I will listen to Red Cloud next.

:beer:

Looking forward to hearing what you think as you work back.


Me too. Really stoked for him to get to dig into such a quality band for the first time. Even if it's just the Joutsen era, there is tons of great stuff to hear and a whole bunch of albums to work through.

I'm gonna go out on a limb and say you'll probably more attracted to the clean singing songs. I say keep working back and experiencing the whole albums, but here are some that I think you'll like:

Winter's Sleep - bonus track from Red Cloud

Silver Bride

Under a Soil and Black Stone

I think if he works his way back through the Joutsen era, it wouldn't be a stretch to continue into the Koskinen stuff. Hell, it's probably more to his tastes, with little to no growling at all. Just depends on if he likes the actual songs.

The new album (just based on the 2 songs) and Red Cloud will be EASY buys for me.

His clean voice is so good. The music is full sounding. They are smart, mature sounding tunes while having an extreme edge to them to my ears anyway. Even the cultural instruments they add to the music....they remind me of Orphaned Land that way. Non-conventional metal instruments that sound metal.

The band is aesthetic to the ears. A full, developed, intelligent sound.

I have ordered the new CD on Amazon for 11.99. I am so excited! :angel: :party: :peace:

Along with a new phone case for my son and an Intelliflo pool pump filter basket. :lol: :roll:

I just love these 2 released songs. If the remaining 8 songs are ANYTHING like these 2, this will easily be my album of the year.

Still waiting on my copy from Nuclear Blast, but my downloaded copy will keep me warm in the meantime.

Not nearly as strong as the first 2, but it's good.

Methinks "THE BEE" might be untouchable this year. :o

I like it. The female vocals adds a little spice to the pot. Especially since Amorphis have been feeding us the same soup for a while now.

2 runs through the entire album and I'm pretty hooked - this thing is awesome. Definite AOTY contender for me - I'm just such a sucker for Amorphis.

I love Amorphis and intentionally stayed away from all the teasers and tried to even stay away from the thread(s).

Can't make it through in one sitting yet and I've tried 4-5 times. Not feeling it-- seems way over the top symphonic-- much more so than recent albums.

Initial impression? Don't care for it at all.

Dunno, will continue to give it shots when I'm in the mood or on an older Amorphis kick rolls around.

you should seek out the "My Kantele" EP, released in the mid 90s. it's 100% clean vocals, quite proggish, and contains a Hawkwind cover! it's a perfect example of this band.

Got my CD and shirt last night, so I've finally heard the bonus tracks. Amorphis always have strong bonus tracks and this is no exception.
