Prog-Related Extreme Metal
A step back from the previous albums. Less folkish, more metal-oriented. But still very enjoyable...

Prog-Related Extreme Metal
The continuation of 2009's Skyforger, with a heavier sound: no ballads, harsh vocals on almost every song... stil retaining the folkish ambience that is Amorphis' trademark.

Another great album from the finnish band, in the same vein as Eclipse or Silent Waters.

Non-Prog Death Metal
This album really grew on me after each listen during the past
two months. The major improvement here is clearly the vocals,
with much more nuances than on the previous album. Musically it
is close to their last release "Eclipse", with the same blend
of folk and power metal with a touch of death metal (mainly the
growls). A bit more extreme in times (more growls are used on
this release, sometimes successfully like on the first two
tracks, sometimes out of place like on "Towards and Against" or
"The White Swan"), a bit mellower in other times (out of ten
songs, four are power ballads and one, "Enigma", is a pure
folkish acoustic tune).

Atmospheric Prog-Related Death Metal
Majestic return form the finnish prog-metal masters with a combination of the best elements of ELEGY, TUONELA and ECLIPSE, the best album since AM UNIVERSUM.

Non-Prog Death Metal
One of the good surprises of 2006...

Another release with lyrics based on traditionnal finnish folklore. The structure of the songs is here more classic with verses and choruses, and even growled vocals make a small return (fortunately used sparingly). Keyboardist Santeri Kallio has become a full time member and even contributed actively to the songwriting. The music itself is stronger than on the previous release, with powerful and catchy songs...

The new singer uses three types of voice: melodic (usually on verses), low rumbling/power voice (usually on choruses) and growls... and it fits the music perfectly.

Highly recommended.
