Normally, I hate it when bands go back and redo classics. I hate it with a passion. Amorphis are one of my top 5 favorite bands of all time, so this release made me a little nervous. Well, my nerves were laid to rest almost immediately after pressing play. For the most part, the songs stay very true to the original, with the new vocalist doing both the growls and the clean vocals, and doing one hell of a job. They picked some real gems here, and I must say that this is actually a must have for any fan of Amorphis, new or old. My only complaint is this: was it really nescessary to go back and re-record "Light My Fire"? Still one of the worst covers I have ever heard next to Candlemass' Black Sabbath Medley.

Format: Audio CD
There has been a noticeable trend in recent years for established bands, especially when there is a significant lineup change, to rerecord their older material with the new lineup. In most cases, these rerecordings are totally unnecessary. The adage "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" comes to mind. Sometimes though, the rerecordings show the old songs in a totally new light (Anacrusis did this particularly well with their Hindsight: Suffering Hour & Reason Revisited collection). Now Finnish progressive death metal band Amorphis is giving it a try with their new collection Magic & Mayhem - Tales From the Early Years. Now that vocalist Tomi Joutsen has a few albums under his belt, and Amorphis has built a new sound around his distinctive vocals, it makes sense for them to revisit some of their earliest recordings.

If you've heard any of Amorphis's recent albums, you know that Joutsen is an impressive clean vocalist, but excels at the death metal growls. If you've caught them live, you know that he absolutely nails the older songs like "Black Winter Day." Hearing the band take on the heavier, more purely death metal songs from The Karelian Isthmus and Tales From the Thousand Lakes is a revelation. It's been nearly two decades since the band's earliest recordings, so obviously they're a lot better at what they do, plus they've developed a unique sound over the years.

This is a great album.
I started listening Amorphis from Silent Water, before that album they were just unknown to me. But that one album was enough to make me a fan of them. Slowly over time I collected other albums of Amorphis. And after giving a good listen to all, I ended up in a decision that 'Tales from the thousand Lakes' is their most musically creative album. But, growing up in a generation of modern musical technology, the sound quality of that album always made me little sad. And I always hoped if Amorphis would release a recorded version or something of that album.
They not 'just' did it, they also did it with Tomi Joutsen on the vocal, they best male voice in progressive/gothic metal.
I was more than happy to see this album coming. I waited waited waited and finally today I got this in my hand!
Its a great album, musically, lyrically. I listened the whole album 3 times in a row since this afternoon. This is just amazing! The riffs, the growls, the drums...everything blow me away to the land of the thousand lakes!

My only disappointment is the last track, rerecorded version of The Doors's Light my Fire....really? I love The Doors, but, really? Its just as dumb as Children of Bodom singing Spears's Oops I did it again!

Amorphis is always first rate - redoing some of the earlier songs with the new singer,who is the best singer that ever was in metal or rock or anything else - shows some of the great song writing too and how a different arrangement will make a song sound better -
even though in their liner notes it says these are not meant to replace the earlier versions, in my opinion they do, because some of the earlier Amorphis albums didn't appeal to me as much because I thought the singer was really not as interesting and the songs didn't sound as interesting. With Tomi Joutsen now the singer I consider them the best band in the world, and this cd almost is like a new album with all original songs, even though they aren't. My Kantele is a good example as one of their best earlier songs , hearing the song with Tomi and his style and voice and the little different arrangement, the song is exceptionally good and I actually love it instead of just liked it before - all the songs in here are like that - except Light My Fire, which isn't their song anyway so it doesn't count
