AMORPHIS – reveal new album's title ... - 2013-01-16

2013-01-16 - Finnish masters of melacholic dark metal, AMORPHIS, have announced the title of the band's upcoming album.

The 11th AMORPHIS album will be entitled „Circle“ and is set to be released April 19, 2013 via Nuclear Blast.

A short summary about the album's concept/story that spreads throught out the lyrics by Pekka Kainulainen, who wrote the lyrics for most recent AMORPHIS albums can be read below:

"The protagonist has been dealt a bad hand at birth. He’s always felt himself an outsider with strong potential to become marginalized. Through an accident, after a crisis, he finds a connection with his inner powers. A guide is sent to him, from some other time and place. He gets a chance to take hold of his own life and change his destiny. From the past of Carelian Finland he finds his own spiritual tribe and the power to turn the course of his doomed life. This is a story of survival."

Singer Tomi Joutsen adds about the album's title: „Circle represents integrity. Back in the days, when there was something special to talk about, wise men used to sit in circle. Not everyone was invited to join them. But in this story, the protagonist was invited among the wise men's circle.“
