Editorial Reviews

Mixing metal roots and their love for classic rock and Finnish folklore, the band have created their own distinct sound composed of intoxicating melodies and aggressive soundscapes and have accrued a highly loyal U.S. fan base in the process. With a new singer, the band have evolved in true AMORPHIS fashion, taking one step back, two steps forward and one step sideways, delivering Eclipse, a potent concoction best described as Tales From The Thousand Lakes meets Elegy meets Far From The Sun. It will surely please old fans and spread their name and music to an exponential amount of new ears and fan bases. Old fans, I have four words for you...Death Growls Are Back! Nuclear Blast. 2006.

AMORPHIS - Eclipse
-
Amorphis has had an interesting musical journey...
They are credited at being one of the originators of Melodic Death Metal with their albums, `The Karelian Isthmus' (1992) and `Tales from the Thousand Lakes' (1994). They began the blending of Singing with their abrasive vocals on (What most would call) their masterpiece, `Elegy' (1996). Losing the growls the band released a very different, yet still intriguing album in 1999 titled Tuonela. Blending Prog, Hard-Rock, with a more traditional Folk style... Sadly the new millennium was not as kind to Amorphis. `Am Universum' (2000) was alright but really just not the `Amorphis' that people had come to know... 2003's `Far From the Sun' was decent, but more of a straight-forward rock album. Shortly after this album long time vocalist Pasi Koskinen, left the band... he was replaced by Tomi Joutsen.
This brings us to 2006, and the release of `Eclipse', which is their strongest release since Elegy...

-Eclipse opens with Two Moons which is a perfect intro... Some fancy keyboard work which is pushed by powerful, driving guitars. The second, Tomi's voice comes in all my `new vocalist' worries were washed away... His combination of aggressive hard-rock vocals with his haunting singing voice is a perfect balance. The bass and drum work, as always is exceptionally tight.
-Track two, House of Sleep is the finest rock song I have heard in years... this song is simply fantastic. With no pun intended this song eclipses any of Amorphis's previous attempts at catchy, hard-rock. The piano work during the last minute is outstanding.
-Leaves Scar, is a return to the days of Elegy... combining some well executed growls with some nice singing.

This is Amorphis' seventh album. Now initially Amorphis started off as a Melodic Death Metal band and it is prominent in the first 3 albums. Many fans agree "Tales From The Thousand Lakes" is a work of genius. Then the next three albums evolved into more mainstream metal, with nevertheless complex arrangements. And now returns the new album Eclipse. I must say I prefer the Melodic Death Metal Amorphis to the Melodic/Heavy Metal Amorphis in the last three albums. Eclipse is a return to form, perhaps not truly - but only because the production is much better than Tales From The Thousand Lakes.

This is a grand album and the guys return with astounding new songs. The new vocalist is very good. He uses three types of vocals: death vocals, "growly" clean vocals and soft clean vocals. Two Moons is a heavy track with excellent keyboard parts and driving guitar parts. There are softer clean singing songs such as House Of Sleep and Born From Fire. I love the pianos in these songs. The vocalist (Tomi Jousten) sings his heart out in House Of Sleep. Fans of the repeated arpeggios with the guitars (in Tales) will love the chorus of this song. In the chorus the heavy guitars plays the expressive melody with one guitar and intense chords with the other. Born From Fire is similar with a majestic solo.

Leaves Scar is my favourite song and reminds me of "Black Winter Day" (from their second album). It's quite a slow song, has a beautiful melody, and long drawn out death vocals. The combination of death vocals and guitars works brilliantly. The clean choruses are outstanding. The folk-like keyboard work brings the song to life.

Under a Soil starts off slow and moody with perfectly placed pianos but then progresses into a fast solo.

I have been a fan of Amorphis since Tales From the Thousand Lakes changed the way I saw music. That album still remains my favorite. However, after a few attempts at a more "mellow" Amorphis, the group has come back with a new lead singer (Pasi, you will be missed for your contributions). But Tomi brings the band into what the band truly stands for - ever changing.

Eclipse is the best surprise I have heard from this group in about 6 years. It moves back to the roots of the band - incorperation of doom metal and melodies that only this band could pull off. For the death metal fan the growls are back and done very well. For followers of the newer Amorphis, the singing is not in the least bit dissapointing. Every song is a reawakening to this group, if you have never heard of these guys this is a wonderful first album to pick up.... An absolute masterpiece!

It's difficult to change vocalists and retain the same following, but Amorphis have achieved it. Eclipse is the third chapter in Amorphis' career. When they first started out, guitarist Tomi Koivusaari sang and played the guitar. Then came their amazing second singer Pasi Koskinen, stepping in for their Elegy masterpiece, with both clean and death vocals. The band released a string of successful albums with Koskinen until 2004's Far from the Sun, where they not only abandoned their folky roots and psychedelic backdrop, but also took on a relatively more modern sound. The album was criticised severely by the band's fanbase and led to the departure of Pasi Koskinen who perhaps couldn't summon the necessary inspiration anymore.

Enter Sinisthra vocalist Tomi Joutsen, hence the third chapter of the band. Not only is Eclipse a perfect return to form, it also marks the release of their heaviest album since 1996's Elegy. Joutsen is an absolutely stunning vocalist, with so much power and emotion in his delivery. Most fans, myself included, thought it impossible to fill Koskinen's shoes, but the impossible has happened. Considering the songs on this album, Joutsen seems like a much better fit than Koskinen would ever have. Repeat listens reveal Amorphis harkened back to their previous albums, combining the best sides of Elegy, Tuonela, and Am Universum. The album kicks off with the powerful "Two Moons", showcasing a very strong vocal performance and plenty of proggy keyboard lines. The piece has a strange Elegy feel to it, moreso sonically than musically. With "Leaves Scar", a song that opens with a folky acoustic intro, the band plays out some great rhythmic grooves, utilising fierce death growls and harmonised back-up singing.
