Finnish melancholic progressive metallers AMORPHIS have signed a new record deal with their longtime label home, Nuclear Blast.
Finnish melancholic progressive metallers AMORPHIS have signed a new record deal with their longtime label home, Nuclear Blast.

AMORPHIS guitarist Esa Holopainen commented: "I'm really happy to announce that AMORPHIS got re-signed to Nuclear Blast! It's nice to be working with such professional and familiar people.

"AMORPHIS has done a lot of touring for the past two years around the globe and now it's time to head back to the studio. This means that the new album will be released next year! It has also been a really nice experience for all of us to play with [returning bassist] Olli-Pekka [Laine] again and for that reason, we're glad to have him participating in the making of the new record."

Nuclear Blast CEO Markus Staiger added: "I'm really proud that we can continue working with AMORPHIS, one of the early Nuclear Blast bands, which went through the roof with 'Tales From The Thousand Lakes' back in 1994. Additionally, they became really good friends of ours, which makes this working relationship even cooler. I'm already looking forward to their next album, because it's simply impossible for AMORPHIS to deliver a bad record."

Longtime AMORPHIS bassist Niclas Etelävuori exited the band in April over management issues.

AMORPHIS recently completed the successful eighteen-concert "Under The Red Cloud" summer tour where they played arena shows with Danish rockers VOLBEAT, among others.

To make the last "Under The Red Cloud" show even more special, the band has come up with a great idea: fans can "jump on stage" with AMORPHIS at the Circus in Helsinki on September 23 as part of a 360-degree experience. The gig will be streamed live, free of charge, but fans can still donate directly to the band on the streaming page. You can also win a limited-edition AMORPHIS VR headset and enjoy the show to the max.

After few years of silence Metal From Finland is back with a completely new website. Content is still very much work-in-progress but we wanted to open the website since most elements are already there.
My god we are stoked! Metal From Finland is finally open again! We were away for few years due to some personal things but now we are back ten times wiser. Metal From Finland 2017 is very much different from old MFF. Not only the way it looks but also what it contains. Whereas we tried to be the ultimate source for Finnish metal in the past now we focus on matters that we find more important. That is to present bands but not so much in detail. We try to provide videos and audio from every band so you know what you are dealing with. There are also lot of changes on how the website is updated and now we are able to update things very fast.

Please keep in mind that this is a work-in-progress and at the moment we only have a small fraction of bands added to the website but we will be adding new ones on daily basis. Also for other changes do check the FAQs for more information. We sincerily hope you enjoy your stay here cause afterall, this was all made for you.
