Finnish band Amorphis returns to Romania in November for a live presentation of their latest material, “The Beginning of Times”, album to be launched on May 27th.
Romania is part of the first heat of the tour “The Beginning of Times”, scheduled to start this June and ending in 2012. For their Romanian fans Amorphis will be playing two concerts: in Sibiu on November 8th in Oldies Pub and in Bucharest on November 9th, in the Silver Church Club. Opening act for the Amorphis concerts will be two bands especially invited by the group to rise the tension of the main event (open doors 19:00; concert begins at 20:00).
“The Beginning of Times”, number 10 in the Amorphis discography is considered by the Finns their most ambitious project in their 20 years of existence. The new Amorphis album, inspired by Finnish mythology, centers the iconic hero Väinämöinen whose tale has been masterfully retold by lyricist Pekka Kainulainen, one of the most appreciated artists of Finnish contemporary art.
Along the 12 tracks the fans can listen to the well-known dark-rock melancholia of Amorphis, with strong emotions borne out of the naturalness, dark oneness and aggressive passages of the new melodic lines. Moreover, the first series of the digipack will include the bonus track “Heart‘s song“.
„The Beginning Of Times” was produced by the band; vocals were recorded under the guidance of Marco Hietala (Nightwish, Tarot) in his home studio in Kuopio. Mikko Karmila who was responsible for the mixing of other Amorphis albums is still present, while the cover artwork belongs to Travis Smith (www.seempieces.com) and represents a magnificent interpretation of the mythological birth of the world from a goldeneye‘s egg.
The “Beginning of Times“ tour features other countries like Germany, Japan, Taiwan, Finland, Belgium, Czech Republic and Slovakia.
