AMORPHIS To Play Special Acoustic Show
15.06.2012 | Source: Blabbermouth.net
Finnish melancholic dark rock/metal icons AMORPHIS will play an acoustic show at Sampomäki in Sammatti, Finland on July 1.
Sampomäki is the birthplace of Elias Lönnrot, the man behind the Finnish national epic "The Kalevala", which AMORPHIS is known for using as a source for its lyrics.
AMORPHIS' latest album, "The Beginning Of Times", entered the German Media Control chart at position No. 16 — the best chart position ever scored by an AMORPHIS album in that country. The CD also landed at position No. 1 on the Finnish chart.
Released on May 27, 2011 via Nuclear Blast Records, "The Beginning Of Times" is described as "the most challenging AMORPHIS album so far in terms of both music and lyrics." Its central character is the iconic hero of Finnish mythology, Väinämöinen, whose tale has been masterfully retold by lyricist Pekka Kainulainen.
"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. Like its predecessors, the album was mixed by Mikko Karmila. Its cover artwork shows Travis Smith's magnificent interpretation of the mythological birth of the world from a goldeneye's egg.
