Amorphis Silent Waters 2007 Review by PowerWyrm

9.7
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.
