Amorphis - 'Northwards' (3D art video)

Ice it shattered into shards
Gave away under our feet
Many men did lose their lives
Taken by Tuonela’s river

In the blue frost of the night
In the icy waters of death
Stifled were both wail and whisper
Frozen were the living hearts

The days they followed each other
Nights defended our dreams
With the seasons grew our circle
And we knew we’d found our place

We would start from the beginning
Make it with our meager means
Crouching, cowering companions
Journeying ever northwards

Waking in the dead of night
My eyes opened in the darkness
I saw the sign of the red hand
Marking the mouth of a cave
On the sordid, stony ground
On a field of frozen grass
I found my spirit kith and kindred
My sisters and my brothers

Game is good and plentiful here
Happy is the life, the life of man
It was not in vain we came
Strayed from the silent waters

The days they followed each other
Nights defended our dreams
With the seasons grew our circle
And we knew we’d found our place

We would start from the beginning
Make it with our meager means
Crouching, cowering companions
Journeying ever northwards



Δυναμικά "μπήκαν" στο 2022 οι Amorphis. Αρχικά κυκλοφόρησαν (ως μέρος του περιοδικού Rock Hard) το -έξι τραγουδιών- ep "The Moon & more", ενώ προ ημερών "βγήκε" σε βινύλιο [με το "We Accursed (Live)" στην δεύτερη πλευρά] το single "On the Dark Waters", το οποίο προετοίμαζε τον νέο τους full legnth album. Τιτλοφορείται "Halo" και "βγήκε" σήμερα...

Ο δίσκος των Amorphis 'Halo'
Δελτίο τύπου: «The day has finally come and Finland's metal legends AMORPHIS have released their new album "Halo".

After receiving raving reviews from all over the world and being voted to #1 of the soundchecks of leading metal outlets like Metal Hammer (D), Rock Hard (D), Legacy (D), Spark (CZ) and Metal.de (D), the band's stunning 14th studio album is finally available on CD, 2LP vinyl, cassette and collector's boxset and transcends the realms of metal and rock with its sheer profoundness and musicality.

Considering the band’s three-decade journey at the forefront of innovative metal music, it’s difficult to comprehend how AMORPHIS manages to raise the proverbial bar time and time again, presenting a more than worthy finale to the trilogy that began with 2015’s "Under the Red Cloud" followed by 2018’s "Queen of Time".

To celebrate the release of "Halo" today, the Finns have unveiled a 3D art video for their album opener 'Northwards' which showcases the diversity and especially the progressive elements of the new record.»
