Amorphis mag ondertussen een begrip genoemd worden. De Finnen zorgen al bijna drie decennia voor uitstekende muziek en lieten dat op het laatste album Queen Of Time zeker ook horen. Na het live-album begin dit jaar mogen we mededelen dat de band ondertussen heeft aangekondigd dat het veertiende album Halo begin volgend jaar uitgebracht zal worden via Nuclear Blast Records. Ook op het nieuwe album zal de melancholie en de kracht in een fraai evenwicht gepresenteerd worden in het eigen Amorphisgeluid en bevestigen daarmee hun eigen status.

02. On The Dark Waters

Het album Halo is de finale in de trilogie die de band gestart is met Under The Red Cloud, gevolgd door Queen Of Time.
“It really is a great feeling that we can still produce very decent music as a band,” zegt mede-oprichter Holopainen. “Perhaps a certain kind of self-criticism and long experience culminate in these latest albums.” To the songwriter himself, “Halo” sounds both familiar and different. “It is thoroughly recognizable Amorphis from beginning to end but the general atmosphere is a little bit heavier and more progressive and also organic compared to its predecessor,”
Zanger Tomi Joutsen vult daarop aan: “To me, ‘Halo’ sounds a little more stripped down compared to ‘Queen Of Time’ and ‘Under The Red Cloud.’ However, don’t get me wrong: when a certain song needs to sound big, then it sounds very big.” 
From day one, Pekka has always been an enthusiastic and prolific lyricist for Amorphis,” zegt Tomi“It is a slow process of translating archaic Finnish poetry into English and adapting it our progressive rhythms. Fortunately, Pekka does everything on time and with great care.” Since 2007’s Silent Waters”, Kainulainen has been navigating the mythological waters of his homeland with great skill and respect. For “Halo”, he outdid himself once again. Halo’ is a loose themed record filled with adventurous tales about the mythical North tens of thousands of years ago,” he explains. “The lyrics tell of an ancient time when man wandered to these abandoned boreal frontiers after the ice age. While describing the revival of a seminal culture in a world of new opportunities, I also try to reach the sempiternal forces of the human mind.”
